For your Upward Awards Night, you need Ned and Joan. Their Kidz Mania!; a highly interactive juggling and illusion event is unsurpassed. Ned and Joan can put on the biggest Upward event your kids have ever seen.


Not only a dynamic and comical performer, Ned shares the Gospel message throughout the program. When it comes to decision time, the kids and families know exactly what Jesus did for them.


Ned’s use of magic was fantastic! He had the kids so focused and gave a great, clear presentation of the Gospel. I would recommend that for any upward awards night presentation. He is so flexible with his presentation and able to adapt to any time frame or schedule you need.

Here are six reasons why you should consider Ned and Joan for your Upward Awards Night:

1) Amazing and memorable circus skills They were featured performers for the “Kids Gig”, a part of the Billy Graham crusade in Louisville.

2) It appeals to be entire family, preschoolers; elementary; youth; adults and even senior citizens, we’ve ministered to each group on their own. we reach and appeal to the entire family, at every age level.

“If your goal is to reach a multi-generational audience with a Gospel presentation, then look no further than Ned and Joan”

Dr. Gerald Kroll, Senior Pastor, Heritage Baptist, Lynchburg, VA

3) Performing experience We are professional illusionists, jugglers and family/kids evangelists based out of Louisville, KY. We have performed with Ringling Brother’s/Barnum and Bailey Circus, Disneyland, Disney World, and other notable places. We know how to reach an audience!20140719_171204

|4) More audience participation than you can shake a stick at. Your audience will be involved throughout the Program. Fun and surprises await them.

5) Full of comedy and humor There will be moments you will have to stop and breathe. Your sides will ache you will be laughing so hard.

6) Powerful Ministry You don’t expect to move a crowd to make decision for Jesus with a small 5-minute gospel presentation at the end of a show. Neither do we! By the end of the program they will have heard the Gospel message in many colorful and effective ways. They will understand what Jesus did on the cross!

“We had Ned for our recent upward basketball awards night, and he did a terrific job of keeping the children’s attention with his talent, while communicating the message of God’s love through Jesus Christ. We had over 21 first-time decisions for Christ. It was a very positive experience. Ned also demonstrates Christ-like humility, both in private and onstage. You will not be disappointed with Ned; we hope to have them back soon.”

Tim Williams, Roebuck Baptist Church, Roebuck, South Carolina.

Ned and Joan,
Just wanted to thank you so much for the excellent job that you did at our Upwards Basketball Awards Night. The people are still raving about your performance. The way that you wove the Gospel into every segment of your show was just awesome. I would be willing to recommend you to anyone who is interested. They can’t go wrong with having Ned and Joan perform and share the Gospel. We had 12 decisions to follow Christ and 11 more children who wanted to find out more information on how to become a Christian after our Upward Awards Night. Thanks Again!
