Evangelical Strongmen Break Bricks, Preach Gospel at Fort Drum

Listen to this story
A four-day Christian revival event came to the North Country last week. This was no traveling tent show. The North Country Encounter featured stunt bikers and rock climbing, motorcycle tours and Christian rockers. The lineup also included two strongmen evangelists known as the Power Team. They smashed bricks and bent steel bars - but their message was spiritual. Chaplains at Fort Drum invited the Power Team and other evangelists to perform on the base. About a hundred soldiers and their families attended. Greg Warner went to the event and sends us this report.
