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

"The Great Monkey Mystery"

In the Great Monkey Mystery young Toby lives with his Grandmother. They don’t have much money or many things, but they love the Lord and live to obey Him. When Grandma hurts her ankle, Toby offers to do her errands in town, including cashing her social security check and getting her prescription medication. In town, he runs into Evan, who tries to convince Toby to use the money for himself. They discover a poster announcing a monkey is missing from a traveling circus, and there is a reward for his return. Toby thinks he saw the monkey in the woods on his way to town, but he cannot go look for it until he finishes his Grandma’s errands. Even tries to get the monkey and the reward for himself. When a robber steals from Toby and the monkey steals from the robber, Evan is hurt and Toby tries to honor God in his decisions and actions. Toby witnesses to Evan and leads him to Christ, but the mysterious monkey is still nowhere to be found! God uses Toby and rewards him for his faithfulness.
