Timothy R. Schultz (Mr. Shortz) serving in Children’s Ministry leadership for more than 15 years. His unique and dynamic ministry began under the leadership of Bishop Terry Painter in Bremerton, WA. Rev. Schultz currently holds a UPCI general license and has served as a sectional Sunday School director for more than 7 years in the Washington State.
Children are excited when Mr. Shortz shows up for ministry. Many pastors extending beyond WA district have called on Rev. T. Shultz for his effective children’s ministry. He is also known for his goofy techniques, connection with the kids through 1 on 1 time, song and games, and is an energetic speaker for children and adults alike. His passion for seeing children filled with the baptism of the Holy Ghost at altar calls and seeing lives changed has caused many parents, pastors, and district officials to request him for their church and sectional rallies. Throughout the many children’s crusades, junior camps, teachers trainings including Sunday and mid-week services, Mr. Shortz has instrumentally seen many children filled with the Holy Ghost and lives being changed as God is made priority in their lives.
Capt. Tara Production is a ministry that uses the youth of your church to minister to the children. When you realize that only a few of the youth are used in a church, this ministry will pull all of the youth that have a desire to be used into this ministry. We teach, train, and mentor the youth to do puppets, skits, dramas, sign language, singing, playing and the use of object lessons and any other thing we can use to minister to the children. When the youth do their production, it teaches, trains, and mentors the children. This way we can help grow the church from the bottom up while the pastor does what he normally does. If the church has a couple that loves working with youth and children, this would give them a great ministry for their church. The sky is the limit when you’re reaching children.
