  • John Jacobs has had much success with his Next Generation Power Force ministry.
    Jacobs has been able to get the Power Force into more than 30,000 public and private assemblies throughout the past 25 years. Now, Power Force will be coming to Augusta Sunday, Sept. 15. Jacobs along with Shawn King and Jerome King, who are brothers and former NFL players, will be the keynote speakers at Life Church on Ohio St. during the morning services. They will have a Power Display at 6 p.m. that evening.
    Shawn King played four seasons with the Carolina Panthers during the '90s after they drafted him in the second round. He then played three years with the Indianapolis Colts for three seasons before moving on to Arena football. Shawn has been a part of Jacobs' Power Force for five years.
    Jerome played with Brian Urlacher and the Chicago Bears for two seasons, then played in NFL Europe before finishing his professional career in the Arena League.
    Both King brothers were high school All-Americans and All-State basketball players. Shawn, who also was an All-American track high jump state champion, played football at Louisiana State University. Jerome played football for Louisiana Tech.
