He has broken a staggering 19 powerlifting records over the past two decades. 

He has also presided over thousands of services, weddings and baptisms at a Canadian church. 

Meet the Reverend Dr Kevin Fast, who has been dubbed the world's strongest priest.

The 51-year-old, a pastor at St Paul's Lutheran Church for 22 years, still holds nine unbroken world records for powerlifting, including the heaviest plane pulled by a man (188.83 tonnes).

He is also the Gunniess World Record holder for the heaviest truck pulled by an arm wrestling move (12.5 tonnes), the most cabers tossed in three minutes (14) and the highest number of people lifted with the shoulders (11).

His other feats include pulling a fire engine over 100ft and hauling a 40-tonne house down a road.

Mr Fast, who lives in Cobourg, Canada, juggles his pastoral duties with competing professionally in Highland-style games in North America.

'Most people in religious circles find it hard to believe that I do all these feats of strength. A pastor is usually small and weak,' he said. 

'Greatest achievement': Mr Fast is pictured pulling a 188.83-tonne CC-177 Globemaster III - a feat that earned him a world record and raised a whopping $65,000 for charity. He described it as his 'greatest achievement'

'But my parishioners here at the church are always supportive. We are a nice big family and they like to hear about my exploits.'

Since first trying out a set of dumbbells at the age of 12, Mr Fast has been putting himself through a gruelling training regime.

REVEREND DR KEVIN FAST'S NINE UNBROKEN WORLD RECORDS

2008 - Heaviest truck pulled over 100ft (63.2 tonnes) 

2009 - Heaviest plane pulled (188.83 tonnes)

2010 - Heaviest House pulled (40 tonnes)

2011 - Heaviest vehicle pulled by two people (75 tonnes)

2011 - Lifted and held 500kg for longest time (61 seconds)

2013 - Heaviest truck pulled with arm wrestling (12.5 tonnes)

2013 - Most people lifted with the shoulders (11)

2013 - Most cabers tossed in three minutes (14)

2013 - Heaviest sled pulled by Santa (17.5 tonnes) 

Most days he can be found training with atlas balls, tractor tyres and cabers on a plot of land gifted to him by the local authorities after he kept ruining the grass with his heavy lifting gear.

The strongman, who has three children with his wife Suzanne, donates all of his winnings and money raised through his stunts to local charities.

'I've set many records over the years - I've pulled planes, trucks, ships and trains. Just about everything you can pull,' he said.

'About the only thing I haven't pulled has been muscles. I've been competing at an extreme level for 21 years and don't want to stop now.

'I've been given the ability to do this and I believe it is a gift from God. The deal with gifts like this is you have to use them to help people otherwise it would be ungrateful.

'So with all my world record attempts I've always tried to raise money for charity.'

Mr Fast's greatest achievement was pulling a 188.83-tonne CC-177 Globemaster III - a feat that earned him a world record and raised a whopping $65,000 for charity.

Describing the challenge, Mr Fast said: 'I was pulling and pulling the plane for about 45 seconds before it even started to move.

'I was completely exhausted - I couldn't feel my muscles any more, but my mind just took over. I pulled with everything I was worth and eventually it started rolling.

Doing what he loves: 'I've set many records over the years - I've pulled planes, trucks, ships and trains. Just about everything you can pull,' said Mr Fast. 'About the only thing I haven't pulled has been muscles'

'After I broke the record, I didn't stop because I had zoned everything out and didn't hear the Guinness adjudicator.

'It was only when my son Jacob, who was alongside me, actually slapped me that I asked why he was hitting me and he shouted you've done it you can stop.'

Despite his success, Mr Fast's unusual hobby of pushing himself to his physical limits does not sit too well with his wife.

'My family is very supportive of the things I do, but it hasn't always been that way,' said the priest.

Looking ahead: Mr Fast said he plans to continue breaking records, including the most cars pulled in one go

'After I set my first record my wife asked me to stop as it worried her too much. She is always concerned when I am doing these feats of strength and usually can't watch when they are taking place.

'But I have travelled the world to break records and so at least we get a nice trip out of it now.'

Mr Fast said he plans to continue breaking records, including one for the most cars pulled in one go.

'Everyone wants to know what's next. I'm healthy and fit and I'm not going to stop yet,' he said.

'Going to attempt the record for the most cars pulled by a person in a few weeks. But I'm waiting for the next big idea to come my way.'
