Ministry Teams: The King's Characters

The King's Characters

The King’s Characters Puppet Team ministers using puppets to present dramatized stories and music with a biblical message. Each year two different programs are developed, each lasting approximately 20 to 30 minutes. During the spring semester (mid February to the end of April), the programs are presented in Sunday schools, church services, AWANA or other club programs, and Christian schools usually within a 1–2-hour travel distance from the college.

The programs are geared both in timing and content for audiences age 6 (first grade) and above, with the target audience being elementary school children, grades 1–6. Some younger children are capable of following the entire program, but most younger children become restless before the end of the program after the novelty of watching puppets wears off!

We have a limited number of dates for the King’s Characters to be scheduled, as all of the team members are full-time students at the college. Contact Jarod Burrer, Director of Public Relations, to schedule The King's Characters.

Sample Ministry Program

"Treasure Hunt"

A young Christian boy, Ryan, lacks wisdom as he is taken in by another boy, Alex, who likes to play tricks on others and even to get money from them inappropriately. After Ryan buys a fake treasure map from Alex, Ryan’s father tells him that he needs to learn how to have wisdom either from listening to good advice but even more importantly from the Bible. At first Ryan thinks that using the Bible as a Treasure Chest is what he needs, but his father helps him see that he needs to learn God’s Word so that it’s “treasure” will be in him. Ryan does gain wisdom, which he uses to avoid another con from Alex and then later to show Alex God’s love by taking a punishment for him. Alex accepts Christ as Savior as a result of Ryan’s witness.
The program is about 25 minutes long.
