Vertical Kids Ministry Shows and Events Descriptions

One-Hour or One and a Half Hour Comedy Ministry Show for Church Events

In the one-hour show, Earl and Kimberly have a variety of entertainment. The Gospel Comedy Magic Show is a professional stage show that includes comedy magic, Mike the Monkey, audience participation, music and other amazing elements that will keep your audience on the edge of their seats. Through the dazzling effects and fun, we share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and give an opportunity for your guests to respond to the gospel. This is a great way to reach out to your community and then be able to follow up with those who respond.

The entire show has non-stop action that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats waiting to see what comes next.

The one and a half hour show provides a few more exciting illusions& audience participation than the one-hour show. If you want to impact your audience to the fullest, then book the one and a half hour show.

Give your children’s workers a break by booking Vertical Kids Ministry to come in and do the whole VBS or Kid’s Crusade for you. This is an easy attendance booster and it saves you time that you could be spending with the kids. It saves you money from all of the books and craft kits you would have to buy and your teachers will love you for it.

We come in and provide you with a 3 – 5 night Crusade, Vacation Bible School, Kid’s or Family Crusade or Kid’s Camp. Each night our teaching lasts about 1 ½ hours in length. For camps we work with your schedules for day and night.

We provide the decorations, the backdrop, the teaching, the entertainment, the games, the music and the Gospel Message.

There are four programs we provide:
The Greatest Show Not On Earth – “The Wordless Book”
The Full Armor of God
Alien Kids – “We Are Aliens In This World”

The Greatest Show Not On Earth is a Circus themed program that will take the student into a fantastic world of imagination filled with animal puppets, clowns, Christian illusions, juggling, balloon twisting, costumes, games, stories, scripture verses, singing and The Wordless Book to share what heaven is like; where and when sin came into the world; God’s promise of sending a Savior to forgive and take our sins away; the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus and how to grow in a relationship with Him. Each day of your event we will focus on a color from the Wordless Book. Each one of the colors tells a story. These colors in order are gold, black, red, white and green.

In the Full Armor Of God program, we use puppets, Christian illusions, juggling, balloon twisting, costumes, games, stories, scripture verses, and singing to show kids that there are spiritual battles in life that we have to be prepared for. Each day we will focus on Ephesians 6:10-17 where your students will encounter each piece of the Full Armor of God including the Belt of Truth, the Helmet of Salvation, the Shield of Faith, the Breast Plate of Righteousness, the Shoes of Peace and the Sword of the Spirit.

In the Alien Kids program- Kids have always been curious about space and “life on other planets.” This theme capitalizes on that curiosity by comparing the life of a Christian with the life of an alien.

1 Peter 2:11 teaches us that we are “aliens in this world.” To live a life that is out of this world, we must be careful to “stay away from sinful things.” That includes guarding our hearts and minds from all of the sinful influences of the world.

It is a fun learning experience with space backgrounds, space and alien decorations, lots of music, scripture learning, story time, magic tricks, juggling, balloon twisting, puppets and lots of audience participation.

Superhero Training Academy – Finding The Superpower Within You.” 

“Superhero Training Academy – Finding The Superpower Within You.” Through all of the fun with magic tricks, balloon twisting, juggling, skits, storytelling, costumes and puppets, we will look at God’s power and help kids understand how they can allow the Holy Spirit to work in and through them. We will look at Superheroes of the Bible and see how God worked through them. They will learn 1 John 4:4 (CEV) which states, “Greater is He who is in us than he that is in the world.”
