Children are important to Mark—even more to
God! According to Barna Research, nearly half of all Americans who accept Jesus
Christ as their Savior do so before reaching the age of 13.
Mark felt called to work with children within the first year of forming One
Man Show. At revival services, he would see kids in the pews looking bored
and thought he could come up with a way to engage them. Thus, Bible
Blast Off was born and, from there, a children’s ministry arm of One Man Show sprang
The Right Choice Show
Over 14,000 children have seen the Right Choice show since Mark debuted it in 2006. The program uses comedy, illusions, storytelling, audience participation and music to inspire youngsters to make such right choices as honesty, kindness, citizenship and reading. This show is about 45 minutes and can be adapted for a church setting.
The Almost Amazing Marko
The Almost Amazing Marko is Mark’s slightly befuddled alter ego who seemingly
messes up magic tricks, but they all come out right in the end. The kids, meanwhile,
giggle, point out his mistakes, gasp with amazement and learn a thing or two
about the Gospel in the whole process. Marko’s show can vary from 30
minutes to an hour, depending on your needs. He always hands out prizes at
the end, usually candy or stickers.
Marko’s Christmas show is holiday fun for all ages! On the hunt to build the “perfect Christmas,” Marko performs routines involving Santa Claus, Christmas trees, candy and other familiar holiday icons. Finally he finds the true meaning of Christmas in a small baby born in a manger. Use this show for any holiday occasion to remind youngsters the “reason for the season!”

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
ABOUT MARK’S OUTREACH TO KIDS:
Mark did an absolutely fantastic job! It seems unanimous around our church that we will have him come back again. He put on incredibly entertaining programs that the kids and the parents loved! But to top off the whole weekend, Mark offered the kids a chance to make the most important choice in life. We had kids make first time decisions to follow Christ!
United Methodist Children's Director, Goddard KS
In my years of working with children, I have seen few people able to hold the attention of a large group of kindergarten through sixth graders for over an hour. Mark’s show was exciting, humorous and helped the kids understand that there is much more to Christmas than presents. Their smiles and continuous laughter affirmed for me and our preschool minister that we absolutely made the right decision asking Mark to come.

Mr. Winter’s magic show was cool. I was bad on the bus but I choose to do better. I’m your biggest fan.
