a few things about the joy...in breaking stuff

I John 4:10 " this is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."

Welcome and thanks for visiting this site...


     My name is Jay Montgomery.  I am a lifetime drug free powerlifter, employed as a full-time youth and associate pastor at First Baptist Church in Carrollton, Kentucky, where i have served for the past 20 years.  I grew up in Ohio, moved to Kentucky in 1988 to attend Campbellsville College where i played football for 4 years and majored with a degree in biology.  I went on to attend The Louisville Southern Theological Seminary where I graduated with a Masters in Christian education. 

     When able, I utilize the platform of STRENGTH to speak to students through school assemb to tell others about Christ and have preached in a variety of venues and ministry opportunities:  prisons, schools, sports teams, churches, Upwards Awards banquets, para church ministries, etc.

     Please take the time and check out the videos, the pictures, the list of available feats of strength, and the list of references.  To see how the strength ministry may be something that you could utilize, please visit the video entitled "Intro to the Strength Ministry...".

     Unlike a lot of speakers, I do not have a specific required honorarium.  I would love to check out the available dates with you, discuss the ministry opportunity and my potential availability.  If this ministry platform would work with what God is already doing within your ministry, please contact me at  


Grace to you and your ministry,
