What sets the Jubilee Gang Apart?


 1. Experience:
Jubilee Gang Ministry events are a one of a kind experience for children and families. All in attendance will stay on the edge of their seats as they learn bible truths. We bring our own sound, lighting, and video to provide the most cutting edge ministry experience possible.  Our system includes a LED Video wall,  robotic intelligent lights, lasers, hilarious video clips, exciting adrenaline blasted games, and interactive video games on a 12 x 8 video wall to provide and atmosphere of excitement and expectation.
Jubilee Gang events are a place for entire families to learn together, have fun together, and ultimately experience God together. 

 2. Message:
Jerry Moyer is one of the top communicators to children and families today. His style is simple enough for a child to understand, but relative to all ages. Bible truths will be taught in a way that all in attendance walk away challenged to deepen their relationship with God. Through the use of video clips, multi media presentations, skits, and games the message of each lesson is driven home in a way that breaks down barriers and inhibitions that people might have. Each lesson is filled with scripture and biblical truth, but it’s presented in a way that is easy to understand for adults and children alike.


3. Ministry:
The Jubilee Gang is very entertaining, but 100% about ministry. At the end of each program all in attendance will be given a chance to respond to the message presented, whether it is accepting Jesus as Lord of their life and being born again, or going deeper in their relationship with God.  The Jubilee Gang experience is about getting the world of God into people that produces change in their lives so that they will look and act like Jesus that ultimately results in being the light of the world.

What people are are saying about The Jubilee Gang


Pastor Josh Payne, Victory Church in Troy, Pa
We were pleased to host the Jubilee Gang this past September for our Back to School Blast Sunday morning main event. The excellence of this ministry begins when the door of their trailer drops. Everything had a place and there was a place for everything. Jubilee Gang is a far cry from a rag tag hodge podge of antiquated Sunday School style entertainment. The Jubilee Gang provided Victory Church with a meaningful ministry experience that still has our children and adults alike talking about the impartation they received months after the event. The Moyers have spared no expense in there investment using equipment that is cutting edge and will engage young and old alike as Jerry delivers Gods timeless truth. Jerry's message is anointed and uncompromising. His in your face style is not only what the youth of this generation need but its what they want. Young to old and everyone in between will be encouraged and inspired to not only follow but chase after Jesus Christ.

Mike Dsane, Children’s Pastor Crossroads Cathedral 1st Assembly of God of Oklahoma City, OK
The Jubilee Gang’s time of ministry at our church was incredible. Because our church is made up of such a diversity of people, it is difficult to meet the cultural needs of everyone in the congregation. When a group of inner city students walked in and experienced the ministry of the Jubilee Gang, they showed more excitement than I had ever seen out of them in a church service. Their ministry broke every distinction whether it was age, race, or denomination. Students went home excited not only excited by the event, but also the decision they had made for Christ.

Dianne Sheeley, Associate Pastor to Children Stillmeadow Church of the Nazarene in York, PA
Our families and kids are still talking about the awesome ministry event last year. What a creative and exciting way to show kids God's love and their need of a savior, Jesus Christ. We are having a great time discipling the many boys and girls that were saved when the Jubilee Gang came to Stillmeadow Church of the Nazarene in York, PA.

Pastor Bob Trombi, Champions Church in Portland, OR:
We had Jubilee Gang this past year and it was amazing! Not only did the kids have fun but the adults did as well (we had 2 family services on Sunday). It was precious to see children come forward with their parents and give their hearts to the Lord. I highly recommend the Moyer's and their ministry, you will not be disappointed!

Sharon Worley, Pastors wife at Christian Life Assembly in Picayune, MS
We were so blessed by the ministry of The Jubilee Gang. This was our second event with them. In the words of one of our grandmas who was with us each night "I was so blessed by and impressed with this ministry! Not only did they bring the truth of Gods word in a powerful way, but, it ministered to all ages! Something for everyone there. From the youngest to the oldest! ". If you are serious about seeing the truth of the gospel presented to your children and adults in a meaningful and fun way, this is a sure thing!

Pastor Bill Harman,  Pastor at Bolt Church of God in Bolt, WV
This was an awesome weekend for our church. Everyone from the youngest to the oldest truly enjoyed the ministry of Jubilee Gang. We were looking for something for the whole family and Jerry and Candy did just that. They were a joy to be around and were flexible to what we wanted from an event. They have a heart to see people saved and discipled, and that shows through in their ministry. You will not be disappointed by having them at your church.

Pastor Jeff Schlemmer, Family Pastor at Vertical Church in West Haven, CT
Jubilee Gang is a fast paced, multi-media explosion! Jerry and Candy Moyer have a huge heart to see all children reached for Jesus Christ! They have run a four day children’s conference for us on several occasions and been a true blessing to our church and children. Easy to work with and highly organized they come in and hit the ground running. With Jubilee Gang you get a lot of bang for your buck! Their stage production is second to none and a great value compared to other ministries we reviewed. Jerry and Candy pull out all the stops! Their productions utilize interactive games, objects lesson, skits, sound effects, videos, lighting and an amazing guest puppet “Wild Thing” all of which create an awesome atmosphere to minster to kids! Their range of teaching topics is broad and always fresh. The Moyers teach the Word of God in a such a simple, clear, accurate way that kids get it! I have seen firsthand and through following their ministry that they are effective minsters of the Gospel. Their presentation of salvation is God-filled and wherever they share children are moved to receive Christ. It is my pleasure to recommend Jerry and Candy Moyer to you I am confident that they will effectively communicate Christ to kids and lives will be changed!

Brenda Bernard Family Pastor at Loch Lynn Church of God in Oakland, Maryland 
Jerry and Candy are awesome! Their love for children proves out each time they set up or tear down their set. It's no small process. I'm thankful and honored to know them and to have had them minister at my church. My Lead Pastor was so impressed that he had them do a Sunday morning service as a family service. I can't say enough about how great their programs are and how well they produce them. The ultimate reason I chose to have Jubilee Gang come to my church was that Jerry knows the importance of leading children and families to Jesus. The event is great, but the reason they do what they do is to lead people to Jesus. The altar service was always awesome, we saw many families impacted and several gave their hearts to Christ for the first time. If you really want to reach children and families for Jesus, the Jubilee Gang is a great choice (tool). They are awesome. It's rare in child evangelism to find people who are about salvation's, not just the entertainment. 

Pastor Jackie Mounts First Assembly of God Springfield, OH
Our Church had a 3-day family outreach with the Jubilee Gang. In my 10 years of serving on our Pastoral staff, this is the best thing we have ever done. Many kids of all ages responded to Jesus, as well as a few adults. Jerry and Candy love Jesus and kids.......they work very hard. Your church will be blessed by their ministry. 

Pat Polo Pastor’s Wife Old Union Christian Union Church Lawson, MO
The ministry of the Jubilee Gang is outstanding. Jerry's wording throughout the evening is clear enough for the younger kids, yet those same words speak right to the hearts of teens and adults. In other words, the "Family Event" is definitely for the entire family! 

 Pastor Robert Cox Living Waters Fellowship Chico, TX
The Jubilee Gang is awesome. It is a fast paced, attractive family ministry that is very bible based. Even our adults were stoked about having them! I would recommend this ministry to any bible believing church! It is VERY effective and Jerry always lays out the gospel in a way that kids (and adults) can understand it!

 Pastor Ken Peters Covenant Church Spokane, WA
One of the best Gospel presentations for kids and the whole family I've ever had at our church. I almost got saved again myself. This ministry is fun in the temporal, and soul saving in the eternal.

Jessica Jeffers Mother in Springfield, OH 
Our church had a 3-day family event with the Jubilee Gang and it was beyond amazing! Too see so many children and families actively engaged and coming to the alter to give their lives to Christ. Jerry and Candy have a true passion for our Lord and what they do! This event changed not only my children but myself as well. You could truly feel the presence of the Holy Spirit upon us. Every service was a new experience and left you hungry for more. New ways to look at your relationship with Christ and seek more of him! If given the chance to attend one of their events, GO it's a must!!!!

Church Minded Vs. Kingdom Minded



We hear a lot today about church growth and church growth is good. A healthy church should be growing just like a healthy person should grow. A healthy church cannot help but grow!

A lot of churches are starting to evaluate every program according to how much it helps the church grow. Evaluation is good and healthy as long as we look at the big picture. The big picture that I am talking about is the Kingdom of God.

Matt. 6:33 says that if we seek first the kingdom of God that all these things will be added unto us. We do not seek his kingdom to get what we want, but as we seek first the kingdom of God our lives and ministry cannot help but grow.

Church growth cannot be the only reason we do certain programs or cut certain programs in our local churches. There is a much higher calling to grow the kingdom of God.

Jesus said in the great commission to go into all the world and make disciples. Those people that need to be reached and discipled in all the world don’t just include people from our local communities that will attend our local churches.

A lot of times when people look at having a Kid’s Crusade or family outreach event they count how many families return after the event and judge whether they should continue having this kind of events in the future.

A lot of times we see great growth in our local churches from such events, but sometimes it does not effect the growth of our local body however it effects the growth of the kingdom of God.

Now I am not saying that we should not evaluate the effectiveness of a certain ministry or outreach events. We should evaluate everything we do to find out if it reached the goals we had for the event and how we can be more effective in reaching these goals during future events. However, our goal should not just be getting new people to come to our church. It should be part of it, but not the entire goal.

When I was on staff as a children’s pastor, I would ask myself what is the goal of any given event and how can we best achieve this goal. A lot of times we do an event just because we have always done this event.

When looking at the event of a traditional VBS and seeing the large budget it required and the manpower from our church, I would ask myself what the goal of VBS was. Was it to encourage the Christian children in our church to grow or to outreach into the community? Being the evangelist that I am and knowing that my children were well taught in children’s church my goal for most large events was outreach.

Then, I would ask myself if we were achieving that goal through the current VBS program. Most VBS curriculums are designed to teach bible truths around a certain theme for the year and not to see children born again and made disciples. VBS programs in some communities have turned into nothing more than a baby sitting service to the parents of the community. Kids jump from VBS to VBS every week during the summer just to have something to do while their parents are at work. Churches even work together to make sure that every week in the summer is covered by a different church and that everyone is not using the same curriculum. Most VBS curriculums have been watered down so that it is not offensive to anyone to get more children to attend. Sure there is a small amount of Bible in the curriculum, but in its self is not anything that will change a life for eternity.

After evaluating the program and seeing that my goal was outreach and evangelism, I decided to change to more of a Kids Crusade format. I do not call it a Kid’s Crusade because the un churched community does not understand the term and usually associate it with the crusades of the dark ages.

I have always been a kingdom minded person. Probably because Matt. 6:33 was one of the first scriptures that really came alive to me as a teen.

We will not always see church growth as a result of an event or program; however we must ask our self if the kingdom grew because of the event or program. Now I am not talking about loosely using the phrase …

“If we touched one child it is worth it”

It is worth it to touch the life of one child. We do not know what that child will become. Maybe this child might become the next Billy Graham or something. But why should we only touch the life of one child during the event? While we are touching their live why not touch the lives of hundreds more. If only one child is reached we should ask ourselves how we can reach more next time and make the adjustments to our program, advertising, and marketing of the event to the community to reach more people.

We recently ministered at a church that had us in and had small crowds each night. Mostly church kids and a few un churched friends attended. The same children came forward each evening during the invitation to be born again. A few people that did not attend the church came forward, but it was mostly the children from their church. I would say around 20 children were born again despite having around 50 children respond to the invitation during the 3 day event. I could see where the pastor might be discouraged and consider not having this type of event in the future because of the cost of the program and the results he saw.

No one new that a friend of mine from facebook attended the service from a neighboring town one of the evenings with a group of children including her 7 year old daughter. She had seen on facebook where we were going to be ministering at this church and wanted to come and check out our ministry.

After the event I received the following e-mail from my facebook friend…

"Thanks for inviting us. I'm sorry we couldn't make all three days. The kids I brought LOVED it, they want you to come to our church. My daughter who's 7 also came with me on Monday night. She has been telling people in her class and in our congregation how she is "born again" and "how God gave her a clean heart". This is HUGE coming from a very Traditional Presbyterian Church. So thank you. You have encouraged me to change my Sunday School curriculum and change the direction of my ministry to be more evangelism based. I'll be back in touch soon after speaking with our finance committee to discuss scheduling a Jubilee Gang event at our church.”


This was worth the whole event to see the lives of these young people changed and to see the possibility of an entire children’s ministry at another church become more evangelistic because of the children’s pastor attending this meeting.

I also received a testimony from a children’s pastor in VA that was born again at a Kids Crusade at a church that he did not attend and never attended except for the Kid’s Crusade where he was born again. Below is his story…

“When I was 5 years old my parents took me to see a traveling children’s evangelist who was ministering in a local church. At the end of the service I asked Jesus into my heart for the first time. My family and I never went back to that church but found ourselves planted in another local church where we grew in Christ. I often think about that first church where I found Jesus. I’m so grateful that church had a kingdom mindset when it came to outreach. Many churches see the goal of outreach as a way to boost attendance numbers. Outreaches are evaluated by measurable returns, but the Bible reminds us that we’re here to build a kingdom…not just our own church. I’m grateful for ministries like the Jubilee Gang who spend their time spreading the seed of God’s word into young hearts. And I’m grateful that this first church had a kingdom mindset that allowed me to hear the gospel for the first time. Their measurable return may be considered insufficient by many churches today but I will be eternally grateful to God for them.”

This is what it is all about folks! As a result of this church being kingdom minded this young child was born again and is now a children’s pastor at a large church that is affecting hundreds if not thousands of lives.

It would be wrong to not give a testimony from a church that did not see growth from a Kids crusade at their church. I received the following letter from a church in OK where a child was born again during the kids crusade and went home and told his mother about Christ and led her to the lord…

“Our pastor's wife was teaching a Wednesday night class and a mom was helping. The mom brought in her form that we have everyone fill out before they help in children's church. Pastor's wife looked at the form and saw that the mom got saved in October and asked her about it.

The mom's two kids came to the crusade and heard about being born again. The boy came to the front to pray. (That's awesome at that) That night when they got home, they told their mom about being born again and the mom got saved in her living room that night and has been faithful to church ever since.”

We would have never have know this if the pastor’s wife had not asked some questions. The kingdom was affected by this event!

When evaluating events and programs let make sure that we are not cutting a program that is affecting the Kingdom when we do not see our church numbers increase.

Evangelism and Outreach Quotes



The Following is a list of Quotes about evangelism that I have collected over the years that have inspired my life and ministry.

“Evangelizing in the church is like fishing in a bathtub: it’s terribly convenient, but you don’t catch much.” (Dr. Roy Fish)

"We're no longer fishers of men, but keepers of the aquarium, and we spend most of our time swiping fish from each others bowls."

"In the Great Commission, the Lord has called us to be--like Peter--fishers of men. We’ve turned the commission around so that we have become merely keepers of the aquarium. Occasionally I take some fish out of your fishbowl and put them into mine, and you do the same with my bowl. But we’re all tending the same fish."

There was a group called The Fisherman's Fellowship. They were surrounded by streams and lakes full of hungry fish. They met regularly to discuss the call to fish, the abundance of fish, and the thrill of catching fish. They got excited about fishing! Someone suggested that they needed a philosophy of fishing, so they carefully defined and redefined fishing, and the purpose of fishing. They developed fishing strategies and tactics. Then they realized that they had been going at it backwards. They had approached fishing from the point of view of the fisherman, and not from the point of view of the fish. How do fish view the world? How does the fisherman appear to the fish? What do fish eat, and when? These are all good things to know. So they began research studies, and attended conferences on fishing. Some traveled to far away places to study different kinds of fish, with different habits. Some got PhD's in fishology. But no one had yet gone fishing. So a committee was formed to send out fisherman. As prospective fishing places outnumbered fisherman, the committee needed to determine priorities. A priority list of fishing places was posted on bulletin boards in all of the fellowship halls. But still, no one was fishing. A survey was launched, to find out why. Most did not answer the survey, but from those that did, it was discovered that some felt called to study fish, a few, to furnish fishing equipment, and several to go around encouraging the fishermen. What with meetings, conferences, and seminars, they just simply didn't have time to fish. Now, Jake was a newcomer to the Fisherman's Fellowship. After one stirring meeting of the Fellowship, he went fishing and caught a large fish. At the next meeting, he told his story, and he was honored for his catch. He was told that he had a special "gift of fishing." He was then scheduled to speak at all the Fellowship chapters and tell how he did it. With all the speaking invitations and his election to the board of directors of the Fisherman's Fellowship, Jake no longer has time to go fishing. But soon he began to feel restless and empty. He longed to feel the tug on the line once again. So he cut the speaking, he resigned from the board, and he said to a friend, "Let's go fishing." They did, just the two of them, and they caught fish. The members of the Fisherman's Fellowship were many, the fish were plentiful, but the fishers were few!

"Evangelism is the outward flowing of the rivers of grace toward men, but worship is the upward expression of the human spirit toward God."
- Donald Gee

We need to quit praying that God would send revival! He sent you to your city. Become the revival that you have been praying for!

The church that becomes focused upon maintaining itself instead of the gospel becomes a dead branch of the living vine... Thomas C. Oden

I'm sick and tired of only reading about church history; let's make some by the grace of God! - LEONARD RAVENHILL

"We are not called to proclaim philosophy and metaphysics, but the simple gospel. Man's fall, his need of a new birth, forgiveness through atonement, and salvation as the result of faith, these are our battle-ax and weapons of war." - C. H. SPURGEON

To get a man soundly saved it is not enough to put on him a pair of new breeches, to give him regular work, or even to give him a University education. These things are all outside a man, and if the inside remains unchanged you have wasted your labor. You must in some way or other graft upon the man's nature a new nature, which has in it the element of the Divine. - General William Booth

The true follower of Christ will not ask, "If I embrace this truth, what will it cost me?" Rather he will say, "This is truth. God help me to walk in it, let come what may!" ~ A. W. Tozer

"Let's quit fiddling with religion and do something to bring the world to Christ." ~ Billy Sunday

When is a revival needed? When carelessness and unconcern keep the people asleep. - Billy Sunday

"It is possible for the most obscure person in a church, with a heart right toward God, to exercise as much power for the evangelization of the world, as it is for those who stand in the most prominent positions." -- John R. Mott

A revival is nothing else than a new beginning of obedience to God. - Charles Finney

“Catch on fire and others will love to come watch you burn.” - John Wesley

"We must wake ourselves up! Or somebody else will take our place, and bear our cross, and thereby rob us of our crown."- William Booth

“You have nothing to do but to save souls. Therefore spend and be spent in this work. And go not only to those that need you, but to those that need you most…It is not your business to preach so many times, and to take care of this or that society; but to save as many souls as you can; to bring as many sinners as you possibly can to repentance.”
– John Wesley

"The greatest of all things is not theology; it is not controversy; it is to save souls." - Dr. Lyman Beecher

On the night of October 8, 1871, D.L. Moody finished a message with some words he regretted for the rest of his life. So great was his remorse that he committed himself to never making the same mistake again. The title of Moody's sermon was "What Shall I Do with Jesus?" At the end, he announced, "Now I want you to take the question with you and think it over, and next Sunday I want you to come back and tell me what you're going to do with Him." But next Sunday never came. As Moody dismissed his audience, the nearby courthouse fire bell sounded. At the time, no one had any idea how serious the blaze would become. As it turned out, the hall in which Moody spoke, the church he established, and his home were all destroyed in the inferno that became the Great Chicago Fire, along with more than 18,000 other buildings. But Moody hardly gave a second thought to his gutted home and church. They could easily be replaced – but not the lost souls. It was the memory of the audience he never saw again that was seared in his mind for the rest of his life.

If your Gospel isn't touching others, it hasn't touched you! -Curry R. Blake

"There is no improving the future without disturbing the present." - Catherine Booth

"In all ages conformity to the world by Christians has resulted in lack of spiritual life and a consequent lack of spiritual vision and enterprise. A secularized or self-centered Church can never evangelize the world." - John R. Mot

When William and Catherine Booth were told by their denomination to move from a place where they were making a maximum impact for the Kingdom of God to another area where they would not be able to make such an impact, Katherine Booth stood up and boldly proclaimed "HELL NO!" Let us proclaim to Hell that we will not conform to its plans for our lives no matter who the messenger is! Let us follow God and make a Maximum Impact for His Kingdom!

Our relationship with God is a personal thing but not a private thing. We are the light of the world. We should never hide our light!

Reaching the lost is the lifeblood of a church. If you aren't winning souls, be so disturbed about it that you change! - Willie George
Ministry need not be an office; it’s a lifestyle devoted to attracting the lost to Christ and encouraging other believers in the faith.” – D.L. Moody

I have but one candle of life to burn, and I would rather burn it out in a land filled with darkness than in a land flooded with light-- John Keith Falconer

The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed -- Hudson Taylor

The Church exists for nothing else but to draw men into Christ, to make them little Christs. If they are not doing that, all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons, even the Bible itself, are simply a waste of time. God became Man for no other purpose. --C. S. Lewis

“The crowds themselves are meaningless. The thing that counts is what happens to the hearts of the people.” - Billy Graham

"Isn't it staggering when you think that one sermon on the day of Pentecost produced 3000 people? And we had some cities yesterday where 3000 sermons were preached and nobody was saved. And it doesn't even faze us."- Leonard Ravenhill

"Evangelism is not a professional job for a few trained men, but is instead the unrelenting responsibility of every person who belongs to the company of Jesus." - Elton Trueblood

Evangelism is the spontaneous overflow of a glad and free heart in Jesus Christ.

A man once testified in one of D.L. Moody's meetings that he had lived "on the Mount of Transfiguration" for five years. "How many souls did you lead to Christ last year?" Moody bluntly asked him. "Well," the man hesitated, "I don't know." "Have you saved any?" Moody persisted. "I don't know that I have," the man admitted. "Well," said Moody, "we don't want that kind of mountaintop experience. When a man gets up so high that he cannot reach down and save poor sinners, there is something wrong.

Some wish to live within the sound of a chapel bell; I wish to run a rescue mission within a yard of hell. -- C.T. Studd

“I look on all the world as my parish; thus far I mean, that, in whatever part of it I am, I judge it meet, right, and my bounden duty, to declare unto all that are willing to hear, the glad tidings of salvation” -John Wesley

“We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won't need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don't fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine.” - Dwight L Moody

"God save us from living in comfort while sinners are sinking into hell!" Charles Spurgeon

"Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth." - John Wesley

To call a man evangelical who is not evangelistic is an utter contradiction. - Morgan, G. Campbell

"I'd rather have people hate me with the knowledge that I tried to save them." - Keith Green

“Oh, to realize that souls, precious, never dying souls, are perishing all around us, going out into the blackness of darkness and despair, eternally lost, and yet to feel no anguish, shed no tears, know no travail! How little we know of the compassion of Jesus!" - Oswald J. Smith

"It is of no use for any of you to try to be soul-winners if you are not bearing fruit in your own lives. How can you serve the Lord with your lips if you do not serve Him with your lives.? How can you preach His gospel with your tongues, when with hands, feet, and heart you are preaching the devil’s gospel, and setting up an antichrist by your practical unholiness?" - Charles Spurgeon

"Can we go too fast in saving souls? If anyone still wants a reply, let him ask the lost souls in Hell."- William Booth

Our business is to present the Christian faith clothed in modern terms, not to propagate modern thought clothed in Christian terms. Confusion here is fatal. - J. I. Packer

It is now possible to live a "christian life" without doing the things that Jesus commanded us to do. "We have hired people to go into all the world, to visit those in prison, to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to care for widows and orphans. The average Christian doesn't have to do it.--Cal Thomas

A revival does two things. First, it returns the Church from her backsliding and second, it causes the conversion of men and women; and it always includes the conviction of sin on the part of the Church. What a spell the devil seems to cast over the Church today!- Billy Sundy

I have but one passion: It is He, it is He alone. The world is the field and the field is the world; and henceforth that country shall be my home where I can be most used in winning souls for Christ. -- Count Nicolaus Ludwn Zinzendorf

Are you waiting on the call? Stop waiting... We are called to surrender and once surrender happens the commissioning will come. (Acts 1:4)

In an effort to rebrand the church, we must be careful not to rebrand the message of Christ!

"Evangelism requires leadership. Leading someone toward giving up their world-view & embracing yours isn't easy" Seth Godin

"We've made a big mistake by asking people to "ask Jesus into their hearts"...Jesus never asked for our "hearts"...Jesus asked for our lives and the question is not if we will receive Jesus the question is have me met the requirements for God to receive us...we come to God on God's terms." Rick Renner

True ministry is reaching people and touching lives. Everything else is just stuff we have to do. -  Jerry Moyer 

People of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”  - Elinor Smith

With decades of leading the body of Christ into positional truths - isn't it time that we now lead the same toward a concern for the lost? – Doug Jones

Someone asked “will the heathen who have never heard the Gospel be saved?” It is more a question with me whether we who have the Gospel and fail to give it to those who have not can be saved. -- Charles Spurgeon

God calls us into ministry to be his hands and feet to our generation. If it ceases to be about this, maybe we should look for another job!

"If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this." ~ C.S. Lewis

"The walls of every church must include the ends of the earth"  - R. Bonnke

"The Christian is a person who makes it easy for others to believe in God." - Robert Murray McCheyne

It matters not how spiritual a church may profess to be, if souls are not saved, something is radically wrong, and the professed spirituality is simply a false experience, a delusion of the devil. People who are satisfied to meet together simply to have a good time among themselves are far away from God. Real spirituality always has an outcome." - Oswald J. Smith

"Many pastors criticize me for taking the Gospel so seriously. But do they really think that on Judgment Day, Christ will chastise me, saying, 'Leonard, you took Me too seriously'?" – Leonard Ravenhill

Jesus did not come into the world to make bad men good. He came into the world to make dead men live! – Leonard Ravenhill

Love Confession





Confession is not a magic wand to make things happen in your life. The Bible says that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. When we hear ourselves confess the Word of God it produces faith in our heart and helps us to renew our mind to what he has done for us.

The bible says in Romans 5:5 that the Love of God has been put in our heart by the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 give us Gods definition of Love. Therefore I can say the following scripture and put my name in the place of Love because this is what God has put in my heart.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
According to 1 Corinthians 13:4-7  I am patient, I am kind. I do not envy, I do not boast, I am not proud.

I am not rude, I am not selfish, I am not easily angered, I keep no record of wrongs done.

 I do not delight in evil but I rejoice with the truth.

 I always protect, I always trusts, I always hope, and I never ever quit.

Church Minded Vs. Kingdom Minded

Church Minded Vs. Kingdom Minded


We hear a lot today about church growth and church growth is good. A healthy church should be growing just like a healthy person should grow. A healthy church cannot help but grow!

A lot of churches are starting to evaluate every program according to how much it helps the church grow. Evaluation is good and healthy as long as we look at the big picture. The big picture that I am talking about is the Kingdom of God.

Matt. 6:33 says that if we seek first the kingdom of God that all these things will be added unto us. We do not seek his kingdom to get what we want, but as we seek first the kingdom of God our lives and ministry cannot help but grow.

Church growth cannot be the only reason we do certain programs or cut certain programs in our local churches. There is a much higher calling to grow the kingdom of God.

Jesus said in the great commission to go into all the world and make disciples. Those people that need to be reached and discipled in all the world don’t just include people from our local communities that will attend our local churches.

A lot of times when people look at having a Kid’s Crusade or family outreach event they count how many families return after the event and judge whether they should continue having this kind of events in the future.

A lot of times we see great growth in our local churches from such events, but sometimes it does not effect the growth of our local body however it effects the growth of the kingdom of God.

Now I am not saying that we should not evaluate the effectiveness of a certain ministry or outreach events. We should evaluate everything we do to find out if it reached the goals we had for the event and how we can be more effective in reaching these goals during future events. However, our goal should not just be getting new people to come to our church. It should be part of it, but not the entire goal.

When I was on staff as a children’s pastor, I would ask myself what is the goal of any given event and how can we best achieve this goal. A lot of times we do an event just because we have always done this event.

When looking at the event of a traditional VBS and seeing the large budget it required and the manpower from our church, I would ask myself what the goal of VBS was. Was it to encourage the Christian children in our church to grow or to outreach into the community? Being the evangelist that I am and knowing that my children were well taught in children’s church my goal for most large events was outreach.

Then, I would ask myself if we were achieving that goal through the current VBS program. Most VBS curriculums are designed to teach bible truths around a certain theme for the year and not to see children born again and made disciples. VBS programs in some communities have turned into nothing more than a baby sitting service to the parents of the community. Kids jump from VBS to VBS every week during the summer just to have something to do while their parents are at work. Churches even work together to make sure that every week in the summer is covered by a different church and that everyone is not using the same curriculum. Most VBS curriculums have been watered down so that it is not offensive to anyone to get more children to attend. Sure there is a small amount of Bible in the curriculum, but in its self is not anything that will change a life for eternity.

After evaluating the program and seeing that my goal was outreach and evangelism, I decided to change to more of a Kids Crusade format. I do not call it a Kid’s Crusade because the un churched community does not understand the term and usually associate it with the crusades of the dark ages.

I have always been a kingdom minded person. Probably because Matt. 6:33 was one of the first scriptures that really came alive to me as a teen.

We will not always see church growth as a result of an event or program; however we must ask our self if the kingdom grew because of the event or program. Now I am not talking about loosely using the phrase …

“If we touched one child it is worth it”

It is worth it to touch the life of one child. We do not know what that child will become. Maybe this child might become the next Billy Graham or something. But why should we only touch the life of one child during the event? While we are touching their live why not touch the lives of hundreds more. If only one child is reached we should ask ourselves how we can reach more next time and make the adjustments to our program, advertising, and marketing of the event to the community to reach more people.

We recently ministered at a church that had us in and had small crowds each night. Mostly church kids and a few un churched friends attended. The same children came forward each evening during the invitation to be born again. A few people that did not attend the church came forward, but it was mostly the children from their church. I would say around 20 children were born again despite having around 50 children respond to the invitation during the 3 day event. I could see where the pastor might be discouraged and consider not having this type of event in the future because of the cost of the program and the results he saw.

No one new that a friend of mine from facebook attended the service from a neighboring town one of the evenings with a group of children including her 7 year old daughter. She had seen on facebook where we were going to be ministering at this church and wanted to come and check out our ministry.

After the event I received the following e-mail from my facebook friend…

"Thanks for inviting us. I'm sorry we couldn't make all three days. The kids I brought LOVED it, they want you to come to our church. My daughter who's 7 also came with me on Monday night. She has been telling people in her class and in our congregation how she is "born again" and "how God gave her a clean heart". This is HUGE coming from a very Traditional Presbyterian Church. So thank you. You have encouraged me to change my Sunday School curriculum and change the direction of my ministry to be more evangelism based. I'll be back in touch soon after speaking with our finance committee to discuss scheduling a Jubilee Gang event at our church.”


This was worth the whole event to see the lives of these young people changed and to see the possibility of an entire children’s ministry at another church become more evangelistic because of the children’s pastor attending this meeting.

I also received a testimony from a children’s pastor in VA that was born again at a Kids Crusade at a church that he did not attend and never attended except for the Kid’s Crusade where he was born again. Below is his story…

“When I was 5 years old my parents took me to see a traveling children’s evangelist who was ministering in a local church. At the end of the service I asked Jesus into my heart for the first time. My family and I never went back to that church but found ourselves planted in another local church where we grew in Christ. I often think about that first church where I found Jesus. I’m so grateful that church had a kingdom mindset when it came to outreach. Many churches see the goal of outreach as a way to boost attendance numbers. Outreaches are evaluated by measurable returns, but the Bible reminds us that we’re here to build a kingdom…not just our own church. I’m grateful for ministries like the Jubilee Gang who spend their time spreading the seed of God’s word into young hearts. And I’m grateful that this first church had a kingdom mindset that allowed me to hear the gospel for the first time. Their measurable return may be considered insufficient by many churches today but I will be eternally grateful to God for them.”

This is what it is all about folks! As a result of this church being kingdom minded this young child was born again and is now a children’s pastor at a large church that is affecting hundreds if not thousands of lives.

It would be wrong to not give a testimony from a church that did not see growth from a Kids crusade at their church. I received the following letter from a church in OK where a child was born again during the kids crusade and went home and told his mother about Christ and led her to the lord…

“Our pastor's wife was teaching a Wednesday night class and a mom was helping. The mom brought in her form that we have everyone fill out before they help in children's church. Pastor's wife looked at the form and saw that the mom got saved in October and asked her about it.

The mom's two kids came to the crusade and heard about being born again. The boy came to the front to pray. (That's awesome at that) That night when they got home, they told their mom about being born again and the mom got saved in her living room that night and has been faithful to church ever since.”

We would have never have know this if the pastor’s wife had not asked some questions. The kingdom was affected by this event!

When evaluating events and programs let make sure that we are not cutting a program that is affecting the Kingdom when we do not see our church numbers increase.

What people are saying about Jubilee Gang Family Events

What Pastors and Parents across America are saying about...  JUBILEE GANG FAMILY EVENTS 


This was an awesome weekend for our church. Everyone from the youngest to the oldest truly enjoyed the ministry of Jubilee Gang. We were looking for something for the whole family and Jerry and Candy did just that. They were a joy to be around and were flexible to what we wanted from an event. They have a heart to see people saved and discipled, and that shows through in their ministry. You will not be disappointed by having them at your church.
 -Pastor Bill Harman Bolt Church of God Bolt, WV 

One of the best Gospel presentations for kids and the whole family I've ever had at our church. I almost got saved again myself. This ministry is fun in the temporal, and soulsaving in the eternal. 
-Pastor Ken Peters Covenant Church Spokane, WA 

Our church had a 3-day family event with the Jubilee Gang and it was beyond amazing! Too see so many children and families actively engaged and coming to the alter to give their lives to Christ. Jerry and Candy have a true passion for our Lord and what they do! This event changed not only my children but myself as well. You could truly feel the presence of the Holy Spirit upon us. Every service was a new experience and left you hungry for more. New ways to look at your relationship with Christ and seek more of him! If given the chance to attend one of their events, GO it's a must!!!! 
-Jessica Jeffers Mother in Springfield, OH 

Our Church had a 3-day family outreach with the Jubilee Gang. In my 10 years of serving on our Pastoral staff, this is the best thing we have ever done. Many kids of all ages responded to Jesus, as well as a few adults. Jerry and Candy love Jesus and kids.......they work very hard. Your church will be blessed by their ministry. 
-Pastor Jackie Mounts First Assembly of God Springfield, OH 

Jerry and Candy are awesome! Their love for children proves out each time they set up or tear down their set. It's no small process. I'm thankful and honored to know them and to have had them minister at my church. My Lead Pastor was so impressed that he had them do a Sunday morning service as a family service. I can't say enough about how great their programs are and how well they produce them. The ultimate reason I chose to have Jubilee Gang come to my church was that Jerry knows the importance of leading children and families to Jesus. The event is great, but the reason they do what they do is to lead people to Jesus. The altar service was always awesome, we saw many families impacted and several gave their hearts to Christ for the first time. If you really want to reach children and families for Jesus, the Jubilee Gang is a great choice (tool). They are awesome. It's rare in child evangelism to find people who are about salvations, not just the entertainment.  
- Brenda Bernard Loch Lynn Church of God in Oakland, Maryland 

We were so blessed by the ministry of The Jubilee Gang. This was our second event with them. In the words of one of our grandmas who was with us each night "I was so blessed by and impressed with this ministry! Not only did they bring the truth of God’s word in a powerful way, but, it ministered to all ages! Something for everyone there. From the youngest to the oldest! ". If you are serious about seeing the truth of the gospel presented to your children and adults in a meaningful and fun way, this is a sure thing! 
- Sharon Worley Pastor’s Wife Christian Life Assembly in Picayune, MS 

The Jubilee Gang is just incredible! Over the years in ministry, I have had the Jubilee Gang do our District Kids' Camp, District Family/Kids Camp (Kids Track), and I have also had them here at my local church a couple of times. Every time, they were excellent to work with, organized, fun, exciting, and the kids (and adults) LOVED them! They were great in working with kids, volunteers, everyone. The Jubilee Gang is also VERY engaging for people of all ages. I love it when they put the verses to a beat- I still have some of the verses memorized from listening to them. Everyone enjoyed the high energy, fun, and creativity of the Jubilee Gang. I would highly recommend them for your next Camp, VBS, family/kids event, or any special event. You will not be disappointed.  
 -Pastor Amanda Rose Hillside Wesleyan Church North Street, MI and East MI District of the Wesleyan Church 

The Jubilee Gang is awesome. It is a fast paced, attractive family ministry that is very bible based. Even our adults were stoked about having them!  I would recommend this ministry to any bible believing church! It is VERY effective and Jerry always lays out the gospel in a way that kids (and adults) can understand it! 
-Pastor Robert Cox Living Waters Fellowship Chico, TX 

The Jubilee Gang presents the gospel in a clear way to children, teens and adults! We had them in during our family camp and around 50 people responded to the altar call to receive Jesus! I enjoyed the engaging memory verse chants/rap, fun games, and messages. Great for all! 
-Tonya Hockenberry New Castle, PA 

The ministry of the Jubilee Gang is outstanding. Jerry's wording throughout the evening is clear enough for the younger kids, yet those same words speak right to the hearts of teens and adults. In other words, the "Family Event" is definitely for the entire family! 
-Pat Polo Pastor’s Wife Old Union Christian Union Church Lawson, MO 

Jubilee Gang visited our church in Elkins, WV at the beginning of August and they did a phenomenal job. It seemed like Satan was attacking our church and everyone that week. However, God had different plans and we saw over 50 souls won to Jesus Christ that week. It was one of those moments and weeks that I will remember for a long time. There is nothing like seeing an altar full with entire families worshipping and seeking God together. They really did minister to the entire family, and lives were changed! 
-Adam West Children’s Pastor Family Worship Center Church of God Elkins, WV 

The Jubilee Gang is awesome! Jerry not only makes teaching kids fun, but also he is deep and takes spiritual formation to the next level! I found myself being ministered to and taking to heart what was spoken by God through him. His altar calls and real worship time is excellent! -- Chris Siordia Pastor to Children and Families Waynesburg, First Church of the Nazarene Waynesburg, PA 

We had Jubilee Gang for the first time this past year and it was amazing! Not only did the kids have fun but the adults did as well (we had 2 family services on Sunday). It was precious to see children come forward with their parents and give their hearts to the Lord. I highly recommend the Moyer's and their ministry, you will not be disappointed!
- Pastor Bob Trombi City Park Church in Gresham, OR 


 My husband and I have raised our little boy, Caleb, in church! He has been at church every week his entire life .... every Sunday and Wednesday, like clockwork!! My husband and I are committed and work in the children's department at our church, so being in church is like being home to Caleb! Our children's pastor is AMAZING, and is like a family member! She teaches spiritual truths and the real meat to our children! We are incredibly blessed to have such an engaged and anointed woman pastor our little ones!!!
Having said all that .... let me say thank YOU!! When you and your wife came to Calvary in Hammond last Summer, Caleb, along with my eldest granddaughter, Emilee, committed their lives to serving Jesus!!!
Although they both have been raised in church and are completely familiar with everything about being in an environment of church, having Jubilee Gang come in helped draw them out of their "comfort zones" and drew them into a place of connecting to a level that reached their spirits deeply!!
Evangelistic children's ministry is rare. Your call and anointing is powerful and helps solidify what wonderful and committed children pastors teach/preach every week!! Thank you, for listening to God's call on your life and obeying the prompting of The Spirit!!! Please never forget ..... IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE to "churched" and "unchurched" kids every where you go!!!!!!
- Lynn Sumrall Hammond, LA

Love how it is broken down so everyone can understand from the youngest to the oldest.
- Judy Weaver Wardell, MO

2016 Jubilee Gang Ministries year end update


Another year is coming to an end, and as we reflect over this year, we are so grateful to you of your support and prayers for the Jubilee Gang. It's because of you we are able to keep on ministering to children and families across America.  We deeply appreciate you!
   We have had another amazing year and saw so many lives touched, both children and adults. This year we have traveled over 34,000 miles, ministered in 18 states, 39 churches, including 7 community outreaches, 2 camps, and 1 children’s home.  We had around 1150 salvations during our events. We have also done many family events where we have seen entire families come to the altar.
   At Thanksgiving we were privileged to partner with Westgate Chapel in Edmonds, WA for a community outreach. This church fed 3 groups of over 400 people at different times. They fed them a great Thanksgiving dinner, gave away door prizes, we then gave a 30 minute gospel presentation, and finished up with pumpkin pie.  It was amazing watching them feed this many people in a 2-hour span before the next group of people came in. They fed over 1200 people in all this day. And after their meal they could visit the food and clothing bank. It was such a blessing to be a part of this outreach. We had 64 
salvations at this event. We finished up our year here in our home town at New Life Church of Springfield with a family event. We had 22 salvation at this event including children, teens, and adults.
   God Bless you, and we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
