Speakers that can keep your attention and engage teens are often difficult to find. Terry Hedges has a unique and fresh way of communicating the message of Christ by incorporating illusions as a part of his presentation of the Gospel for people of all ages! I would highly recommend him for your camps, retreats, NYI Conventions, etc.
- Peter Kline, North Arkansas District NYI President

As a children’s pastor I have seen many artists and “Christian entertainers”, Terry Hedges is one of the best. He has a unique style that mixes magic, illusion, fast paced entertainment, and most importantly the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. He relates well to all ages and has ministered at camps, revivals and retreats. You will be blessed to have Terry Hedges and his ministry at your next event!

We recently were blessed to have Terry Hedges for an evening service. He is certainly an accomplished illusionist, but I was also deeply impressed with his passion to use his “magic” to open the door for his real purpose. That purpose was to bring a message of hope. He blended his positive message with some very impressive illusions. One very important part of his performance was the audience participation. I’m afraid one of our little girls nearly stole the show, but took it in stride. He can adapt to the unexpected as he well proved that night. He has a great connection with children as well as adults, and all ages will take something positive away with each of his performances. I highly recommend this artist to you. I know you will be well pleased with what you experience.

Terry Hedges was the chapel speaker at our district primary camp in the summer of 2007. He was a hit! His humor and magic kept the kids tuned in and wanting more. They eagerly anticipated each and every chapel time. However, the sessions with Terry were more than simply entertainment. He taught spiritual truths that were at an age appropriate level, kept the kids engaged in learning, and provided applications that were relevant to their everyday lives. He used a variety of teaching methods that were current and kid-friendly. The variety of resources that he incorporated in his teaching were all directed at bringing home the spiritual truth that was to be delivered that day. Chapel was a highlight of camp that year and we were grateful that Terry shared his God-given gifts with our children. I was the director of this camp and found Terry to be easy to work with and dependable in fulfilling what was asked of him. I observed him on many occasions interacting informally with the kids throughout the day and it was obvious that he had a great rapport with them as individuals. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a guest speaker for your Children’s Ministries.

I invited Terry to lead a children’s four-night revival at Brentwood Church of the Nazarene where I was the children’s pastor. In these capacities I witnessed Terry’s talent, expertise and passion for bringing joy to children and adults alike. He is a true professional, an expert at his craft, and an incredibly skilled entertainer and communicator. Terry will exceed your expectations, leaving you and your audience with a message and a smile that will last long after your event.

I would like to recommend Terry Hedges to you. He was with us at Calvary Church and not only provided the morning worship service for our children’s church, but also provided the value lesson for our community Upward Basketball Awards Ceremony that evening. Terry not only engaged our children in worship in the morning venue, but in excellent fashion he engaged our community children and their parents, that night. It was amazing to watch the adults become so engrossed and involved in Terry’s presentations, magic and teachings on morals and ethics. I discovered that day a little bit of the scope of Terry’s material and the optional venues he can offer. He truly is a treat for children and an effective communicator and teacher for adults as well. God is using him in a marvelous way and you will be very pleased with his performance as well as his flexibility and sincere approach to ministry.

I am writing a letter of recommendation for my friend in ministry Terry Hedges. We had Terry in November 2011 as our children’s ministry revival speaker. He was fantastic in engaging the children on their level. Children begged their parents to let them come back each night. Terry has a genuine love for children and a passion for making the Good News of Jesus understood on their level. He does this by awesome illusions, great magic tricks, songs & humor. Our children still talk about some of the things that happened during the time Terry spent with us last fall. I would recommend Terry Hedges to people wanting something exciting & engaging for their children. Terry will not disappoint. I really hope you will find a place for him to engage with the people of your community & church.
