The Strength Team was founded by Mike Hagen, a former player for the Seattle Seahawks, as well as former Power Team Vice-President. Under Mike Hagen’s leadership, the team of Ministers / Athletes has grown numerically and spiritually with fourteen ministers, three of whom are Senior Pastors. With a unique blend of athletes and evangelists, The Strength Team is equipped to serve and partner with churches or ministries to enhance their evangelistic outreach and launch it to the next level.
The Strength Team Ministers derive from various athletic backgrounds such as collegiate and professional football, olympians, powerlifting, bodybuilding and pro wrestling. The Team has incredible athletic ability to perform eye-catching feats of strength, but the demonstrations are merely the tool that allows them to share a life changing message! The mantel of Ministry and Leadership has been passed down to Mike Hagen's Son-in-Law; Mark Rodriguez. Mark has served in Ministry as the Vice President for the past 13 years. Mark's passion for reaching the lost and partnering with churches grows each day as he coordinates upcoming outreaches and helps The Strength Team Legacy continue.
