I am the Children’s Director at Calvary UPC in Jonesboro, AR pastored by Rev. Darrell Runyan. I have 30+ years of experience in working with children’s ministries such as Sunday School, Bus Ministry, Children church, Special Events such as Fall Fest, Education Day, School Prayer, etc. In 1993, my husband and I founded the program, Street RAGE (Reaching A Generation Effectively) which is a mentoring program that brings children’s church right to the neighborhoods where the children live. Hundreds of children have received salvation through this ministry and is still active after 23 years, in our local ministry, as well as in many other cities across America and on the foreign field. In 2012, my husband passed away with colon cancer, and my son-in-laws, Craig O’Brien and Tony Goforth, have stepped into place and are working in our local ministry as well as traveling with me as Children’s Evangelists, aka “Flock & Fritter.” We conduct children’s revivals and camps which include high-energy songs, comedy, gospel illusions, illustrated sermons/storytelling, drama/black light presentations and powerful altar services. We teach Training and Motivational Seminars as well as Street RAGE Workshops.

TIM RIMMER: Tim is a licensed minister with the UPCI, and an award winning clown. He graduated from clown puppet & storytelling camp June 17th, 1995. He has been ministering to groups of all ages for 20+ years. Before becoming a Children’s Evangelist, he taught Sunday school and children’s church. Tim has a creative personality and incorporates a dynamic blend of illusions, balloons and puppets into a power-packed Holy Ghost anointed service that will minister to any church’s needs. His character, Handy Dandy was developed to connect to the children at their level. He will leave them scratching their heads as he performs a variety of illusions that will baffle any age group. Using silly props and plenty of audience participation he is planting seeds of scripture deep within each child’s heart. The lessons taught allow the children to understand Biblical truths that will be remembered for years to come. Handy Dandy has been known to bring mystery, lollygags, and laughter to every service he attends. His outgoing personality and quick-witted humor always achieves him instant rapport with his audience. Watch the excitement fill the air as Handy Dandy pulls his ventriloquist puppets, Little Ed, Brussel Sprout and Cee-Jay out of their backpacks and instantly bring them to life. The puppets relate to the kids with their life-like daily trials and struggles as they look to Handy Dandy for approval and direction.
YVONNE RIMMER: Yvonne is an accredited author and licensed counselor. Yvonne currently writes a lot of the lessons you will see during a GHW service. She is instrumental in writing the schedules, helping in set design and keeping the service flowing backstage, while joining Handy Dandy at times as Sunflower. Sunflower loves to keep Handy Dandy on his toes as he never knows what she has in store. She also joins Handy Dandy in the worship part of the service to encourage the children and adults to get involved.
Together Tim & Yvonne make a successful team. As contestants in the puppet competition at the 2006 Children’s Ministry Conference they were instrumental in leading the Pentecostals of Murfreesboro’s puppet team to a first place victory. Since answering the Lord’s call, Tim & Yvonne have seen thousands of kids receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, including their own four and 2 of thier grandkids.
If you’re looking for a kids evangelist that wears a suit and a tie and arrives with a simple backpack, then you’re looking at the wrong team. Hollywood has raised the bar too high for us to continue to sit back and bore kids with flannel graphs and watching veggie tale videos. Our full stage setup is unlike any you have ever seen and has the kids on the edge of their seats even before the service starts.
God’s Handywork offers power packed evangelistic services that minister to the young and the young at heart. We use a wide variety of awesome puppets, object lessons, ballooning, get-up and dance action songs, gospel illusions, scientific experiments, clowning, stories, and drama!!
In this day and age of drugs, peer pressure, violence, and child abuse, Tim & Yvonne have accepted the call of God, to minister anointed eye level sermons to the leaders of tomorrow.
Experience an apostolic, Holy Ghost outpouring at your next children’s prayer revival, vacation bible school, kids crusade, or any other event that you are planning.
