Donny captured the spirit of our night’s theme (honoring our volunteers) and connected it with Scripture
in a way that both blessed and amazed our congregation! Donny holds a unique way of connecting the Word of God with
magic that reminds me a lot of how Jesus may have amazed his crowds with miracles. Ironically he spoke on John the Baptist
and performed much like him, pointing to the One who is greater than us all (Jn. 3:30). He wowed our children, caused
our adults to ask, “How’d he do that,” and continually pointed to Christ and the Word of God with his show.
Thank you, Donny! Wes Ehrhart -Pastor

“Donny Crandell presented the Gospel message in humorous and interactive ways that engaged the children
in the lesson. He was able to present spiritual truths through illusions and activities that made the children want
to learn more.”

Just wanted to say "thanks" and tell you what a great job you did for our
on B Street party for our inner-city kids. I was confident that
they would love you and they did.
years the church has had many illusionists to entertain our kids. You're the best! You are talented enough that you
do not need the pizzazz of "big" staging or "big" tricks to totally captivate your audience. Your personality and humor relaxes
the audience and there is "buy-in". You kept the attention of the 4 year olds as well as the adults. No discipline was needed
because their eyes were on you the whole time!
