Jeffrey Cline

General License

Please allow me to introduce myself.

My name is Jeffrey Cline. I am a husband, dad, friend, son, brother, uncle, minister, preacher, servant, pastor, teacher, reacher, and now a Kids Evangelist. I was born in Ohio, raised in in an Apostolic Church until I was about 14. I was baptized at age 9 and received the Holy Ghost when I was 10. At a young age, I felt the call of God on my life, but did not yield to it. Years later I found myself in the Army, away from my family and God. There were many times that I felt Jesus reaching and pulling at my heart.

I am glad God never gave up. In 1995, I found myself at an altar of an Apostolic Church. A few months later that call of God that I felt in my younger years started to grow. God began to open doors and show me favor. I started teaching Sunday school, and then started a bus route. The Lord just continued to add to my ministry and the church.

I have had the honor of working in many different ministries in the United Pentecostal Church, from cleaning restrooms and painting the church, to district positions. God has allowed me to work in youth camps, district rallies, missions, and as a local pastor and youth pastor. During all these endeavors there was always a burden that I had for kids and them connecting to God.

After youth pastoring and pastoring for a combined 12 years, God began to open a door for Kids Ministry. God has and continues to use me to reach and connect with kids. A unique niche and a genuine burden for kids drives me to do whatever I can to tear down walls, remove fear and allow kids to connect to Christ.

I would be honored to work with you, your staff, and your kids. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and available dates.

Todd Dugal

General License

I am a General Licensed Minister with the U.P.C.I. I have been ministering to children and youth for 26 years. I have been working children’s ministry in my local church, IL. Kid’s Camp, and in my section before starting to go into Children’s Ministry full time. My burden is to minister my heart to kid’s of all ages. I use all avenues of creativity to reach every hungry soul including puppets, action songs, object lessons to get on every level necessary. I have ministered in crusades, revivals, V.B.S.’s, and have had the opportunity to minister at IL Kid’s Camps. I also enjoy sharing my burden and testimony in Teachers Workshops.

Steve and Krisann Durnford

Working as a team, the Durnfords incorporate Bible doctrine and principles in every area of the children’s service: interactive worship and prayer, object lessons, fun activities, ventriloquism, puppetry, and illustrative preaching. They have been involved in children’s ministry for over twenty-five years: teaching, preaching, and ministering to children in local Sunday School, street outreach, district functions, and children’s camps. In addition, they provide training seminars on a variety of subjects to children’s ministry workers. The Durnfords believe that children’s ministry happens 24/7, not just during class or service. Bro Durnford enjoys ministering to the children on their level and is often found sitting in the pew with children surrounding him–telling jokes, stories, and interacting with them individually. Sis Durnford is a writer of children’s curriculum, both for Word Aflame Sunday School materials and her two children’s books, God’s Word & me and Operation Prayer & me (available through Pentecostal Publishing House). She has a tremendous burden for children’s prayer ministry in the local church. Together they wish to minister to every child—saved, unsaved, saint’s child or preacher’s kid—because they know the powerful potential of God-fearing, praying children!
