“Gifted young man.” “Powerful witness.” “His juggling is amazing!” These are examples of the comments heard during the worship service led by LaMar Yoder, Christian Juggler.
LaMar led an annual outdoor worship service this morning under a tent before over 100 members of Churubusco United Methodist Church. His gift of juggling, talent to teach, message from scripture, and ability to share his own Christian journey made the service one that all ages related to, learned from, and enjoyed.
I recommend LaMar for a light-hearted, spiritually deep message at a worship service or special gathering.

Juggler Yoder performed as part of our VBS at La Porte First Church of God.
This is his second year performing here, and his performances are the highlight of our VBS. One hundred forty-four children sat entranced as LaMar Yoder juggled balls, clubs, rings, swords, and torches. The juggling was great, and so was the message. LaMar connected his juggling with the truth of the Bible in several clever ways. He used volunteers, and he was constantly connecting with the audience in some way. The parents heard several stories about LaMar’s performance that night. One toddler who was trying to tell her mother about the torches said, “The juggler set marshmallows on fire, and he threw them in the air!” It was a great show, and we’ll be glad to have Juggler Yoder back next

LaMar Yoder performed at our Church Carnival Saturday June 23, 2012. His show was amazing. He held the attention of all the children and adults at the carnival, and had a wonderful Christian theme throughout the entire show. I would be glad to recommend LaMar to anyone who would like to add some flare to their get together. Thank you so much LaMar for your time, and all of the hard work that you put into your performance. It was enjoyed by all.

“Juggler Yoder performed at our library as a part of our Summer Reading Program. His show continues to be one of the most talked about programs of the summer. The children, parents and staff that attended the program thoroughly enjoyed it. Many of the children went home after the program excited to practice their juggling skills. Juggler Yoder’s talent is exceptional and his performance is engaging. I highly recommend his show!”

I have two sons, ages 12 and 9. Nothing can compare to seeing them engrossed, with jaws dropped, at LaMar Yoder’s juggling performance! His act is entertaining and educational. Adults and children are amazed at what he can juggle; everything from rings, to flaming torches, to eggs. When I asked my sons to describe LaMar’s talent, they used words like “captivating”, “heart-stopping”, “fun” and “outstanding”. We’ve seen his act three times and are astounded anew every time! Not only is LaMar’s act great, but his character is as well.

LaMar’s shows are upbeat, interactive and awe-inspiring! Perfect for our camp and a hit with all the campers.

Your performance of the juggling act was enjoyed by all of our patrons. Being outside, was a little windy for you, but you still gave a great performance. Thanks again for coming to our library and doing this show.

I was in need of a juggling performance as part of a community wide event “Creativity Week Celebrates Leonardo Da Vinci.” I called and met with LaMar Yoder. He graciously accepted participation in the community wide event and mesmerized the audience with his juggling talents. Later I needed juggling events for two of my branch library locations and called on LaMar again. The library patrons and community members absolutely loved his performance and his interaction with the audience. I highly recommend LaMar Yoder, he is professional, arrives ahead of time to prepare for the performance, and is extremely engaging.

Recently, I enjoyed watching Jugglers Yoder’s show at Mount Joy in Goshen, IN. His lighthearted interaction with the crowd appealed to all ages. I appreciated the family-freinedly atmosphere and wholesome message. Without reservation, I recommend Juggler Yoder of your church, school, reunion, or community event. I left wanting to see more and I think you will too!

Juggler Yoder performed in an assembly at Crichfield Elementary School. This assembly was part of our accelerated reader program and was designed to entertain and inspire children to meet academic and life goals. The children loved the juggling, and they listened intently as Yoder compared his juggling with life and academics. His juggling was amazing; the children were thrilled. LaMar Yoder performed a variety of juggling routines, and he used music, humor, and audience participation to get his points across. The children loved watching Juggler Yoder perform, and I’d certainly recommend him for your school program.

LaMar Entertained our church members at our 2011 Homecoming Sunday on Sept. 11, 2011. He performed for both children and adults. His program was creative and impressive. We are so glad he was part of our special day!

LaMar “Juggler” Yoder gave a fabulous performance during our Red Ribbon Week assembly. The children were captivated by the items juggled, especially the knives and the fire. They were talking about the performance days after Mr. Yoder was at our school. I would gladly recommend him for a school or church assembly.

Juggler Yoder is a very talented performer. A blend of comedy, juggling, skill & a Christian message. If you are looking for clean, fun, family entertainment Yoder is the man!

Juggler Yoder performed at our church and had a great presentation along with interaction with the crowd and humor. Children and adults were engaged and smiling. After seeing his show my wife and I invited LaMar to perform at our twins first birthday party for many friends and family, again he wowed the crowd and they enjoyed the performance. LaMar has an awesome show and much practice is evident, amateur NOT AT ALL, he is a professional Juggler.

Our ladies ministries had Juggler Yoder share his program for our traditional Christmas Family Night. We found his program to be appealing and entertaining to all ages. He kept the attention of his audience, his appearance was professional and he was very well organized. We especially enjoyed that his juggling was synchronized with his music. His program included a spiritual message as well which is always a plus. I would recommend LaMar highly for anyone looking for a fun program.

Juggler Yoder presented a fascinating program for our Fall Roundup. He literally drew both kids and adults into his act as they edged closer to the front of the sanctuary. By the end of the program the kids were sitting at his feet…and the adults were right behind them! He used juggling to illustrate difficult-to-understand Biblical concepts of growing in faith and trusting in God. His personal testimony of God’s power working in his life and the “glowing” balls showed us how the Spirit can illuminate our lives so God shines through every aspect. His skill demonstrated himself as a professional perfomer, but his warmth and friendliness to both kids and adults, before, during and after the presentation show he is more than an actor. Everyone was spell bound as he juggled fruit, balls, rings and even eggs, knives and fire! I highly recommend Juggler Yoder for your next gathering!
