General Information

What is a Creative Ministry Festival?
A Creative Ministry Festival is a Saturday filled with workshops, performances, competition, demonstrations, excitement and spiritual challenge. Festivals provide a place for teens and adults alike to learn more about creative arts ministry, to have a chance to hone their skills, and to network with other creative ministry enthusiasts in their region.

Choose from beginning and advanced workshops for a variety of creative ministry directors and performers. Workshops (topics vary at each location) featuring: puppet ministry, gospel illusion, ventriloquism, stick ministry, music, ballooning, children's ministry, and leadership will re-energize your ministry. Our workshop leaders are experts who teach from their own experience in leading successful creative ministry teams. It is also a great venue to get ideas and inspiration by watching others perform and compete.

Who should attend a Creative Ministry Festival?
Children's ministry workers, puppet team directors, creative arts enthusiasts, Sunday school teachers, family worship leaders, and anyone in ministry will benefit from the training and inspiration. Please note that children under age 8 will not be admitted. Please do not bring babies, toddlers, or young children to the festival. The festival is for adults and youth over 8 years old.

What is the schedule of a festival?
Registration opens Saturday morning at 8:30am. The festival runs all day Saturday. Please check out the sample schedule at the bottom of this page. For workshop titles at your location, see the schedule on the location page.

Creative Ministry Resource Display
There will be a wide variety of puppets, patterns, creative ministry DVDs, scripts, CDs and other resources for you to purchase. All major credit cards, cash, or personal checks will be accepted. Come early and take time to look over the many ministry resources available to help you.

In order to keep to our festival schedule we are planning to make lunch available for those who wish to order it when they register. The new schedule allows 45 minutes for lunch so there will not be time for teams to leave, have lunch and return in time for the next session.

The lunch options will be either brown bagging your lunch or purchasing the meal option which includes:

  • Sandwich (Chick-fil-A when possible or a turkey or ham deli style sandwich)
  • Chips
  • Cookie
  • Soda/bottle of water

The price is $10
(Meals must be reserved by the Thursday before the festival. Fee is non-refundable after that date.)

Cancellation Policies
Refunds will be given only if Creative Ministry Solutions is notified at least ten days prior to the festival. Cancellations received after the ten-day cutoff will receive a merchandise certificate for the registration amount minus a 20% cancellation fee. There will be no refunds after the event. If you are unable to compete, please contact us immediately to allow another team to compete. Meal fees are not refundable 24 hours before the event start.

The theme for the July 2018 to June 2019 events is "I am NOT Ashamed" with Romans 1:16 as the theme verse.
