Clowns for Christ Ministry 
In 2012 a professional clown from Minnesota, Sid Teske, spent two weeks
at Shepherd of the Hills training a team of 12. This team became Clowns for Christ and have been sharing God’s love by bringing joy and compassion to people
of all ages.  Nursing homes, battered women’s shelters, homeless shelters, VBS,
church services, parades are some of the venues where the team has shared
their message of Christ’s love.
Recently the team did a program for Children’s Sidewalk Ministry in Apache Junction. After the program Vidar, an eleven year old, shared his prayer request for the clowns, “Never Quit”.
An excerpt from The Clowns Prayer says, “Never let us become so indifferent
that we fail to see the wonder in the eyes of a child or the twinkle in the eyes
of the aged.”
