The fact that a magic show can build excitement and draw in a large crowd is why Christian illusionist and entertainer Mitch Gravitte of Marvel Ministries uses magic, illusions and puppets as an outreach event.
Mr. Gravitte wanted to create a network of ministry-minded individuals to form the Cleveland Creative Ministry Network, which is why he approached The Salvation Army, who has agreed to sponsor this event.
All pastors, youth/children’s pastors, lay persons, Sunday School teachers, missionaries, coaches, mentors, church volunteers and others interested in learning about this strategic ministry, are invited to attend the free event and invited to join the Cleveland Creative Ministry Network, on Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. at The Salvation Army, Cleveland Corps at 437 Inman Street.
Mr. Gravitte combines fun, laughter and mind-blowing magic to engage audiences and clearly presents Gospel truth. All ages end up clapping, laughing and sitting on the edge of their seat watching the magic happen. More importantly, he can clearly present the powerful truth of salvation through Jesus Christ.
According to Mr. Gravitte, God has given him the ability to teach the Word through illusions that many people use to trick and confuse.
“It’s an interesting concept that allows a person to hear God’s Word and see it in an amazing way,” he said.
Sgt. Ruthie Forgey, the administrator for The Salvation Army believes the Cleveland Creative Ministry Network is a non-imposing, nonthreatening method of ministry to share the love of Christ.
“It steps outside the box of traditional modalities and through the Arts, preserves the traditional, unchanging truth that God loves His people and desires relationship with them,” Ms. Forgey said.
