This show will be performed in Canton, MI at Connection Church on September 10th. Concert at 6:00, Circus at 7:00. “I’m excited to share the stage with such great talent. My dad, Randy Christensen is the former president of the World Clown Association and I always love performing with him. He will be here for the show. Since he lives in Minnesota and I live in Michigan we do not get to perform together as much as we used to. Now I really cherish the opportunity!” -Ben Christensen Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids or $40 for families. They can be purchased at www.connectionchurch.info

“One of the most exciting shows offered to Midwest churches in 2017.” Cirque Imaginings follows a little girl on an adventure into a world of imagination.

Currently booking January – February 2017. More info on Cirque Imaginings @ www.cirqueimaginings.com
Last year we had a great time performing the Tiny Circus in Michigan. We had over 800 people see the show. 6 performers were involved for 3 shows. During all three shows a gospel message was shared. See the highlight reel from last year’s show here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJAEtQ8zb5o This year we are currently working on securing a number of new acts and bringing back some of last years favorites. We hope to continue where we left off from last year with juggling, clowns, rope-walking, balancing stunts, and even add in a performing pig! This show is set up as an outreach for churches and we try to keep the cost low. We are looking for more church venues to host us. The cost is $250 plus a love offering the night of the performance. The $250 is what we need to cover expenses (posters, online promotion, props and supplies). The love offering is how we can afford to pay any of the 4 to 10 performers needed for each show. Because of the pricing and the scheduling of a large cast the Tiny Circus is currently only avaialbe for bookings in January and February of 2016. If you are interested in hosting this unique outreach give Ben a call at 320.905.4552 or e-mail him at: firstname.lastname@example.org
All For the 1 is a one of a kind event that brings together various ministry teams from around the country. The show/concert runs almost 2 1/2 hours. The goal is simply to take a night and band together as a community to give glory and honor to Jesus Christ. View the official website at allforthe1.org This year the show is built around a concert featuring B-SHOC (pictured above), a christian rapper from Atlanta, GA. B-SHOC’s show is best described as an “experience.” He uses his musical ability to create some Jesus music that will be sure to have everyone bouncing as they ultimately give glory to God. The concert includes a full light show, pumping music, and personal stories. The King’s Yomen are the masterminds behind the All For the 1 tour. Specializing in yo-yo and drama ministry they perform all over the USA. They are based out of east Michigan. On stage you will see more than just cool yo-yo tricks. Their interaction with each other and the audience will give you a glimpse of their heart for ministry. They prove that you really can use any type of skill you have to honor God. Ben Christensen rounds out this year’s All for the 1 event. Ben Christensen is a traveling entertainer and evangelist. He met B-SHOC and the King’s Yomen while performing for national KidFest weekend retreats hosted by the Church of God. After being on the road together they became friends and have since put together this outreach event. You will not want to miss […]
