What’s Your Puppet Team’s Name?

I visited I-Fest last week for a couple of days and had a lot of fun. (so did my car) I already posted my first impressions, so today I wanted to post some of the pictures of the different puppet teams, as well as a flash video of one of the interviews I did while I was there!


It was so cool to see these groups of young people having a great time at an event that is training them for ministry!


These guys are obviously having fun!


And how can you miss this group?


Even in a classroom they stand out!


Here is the back of their shirts with their name.


So many of them had a biblical source for their name too.


This dude is just too cool! And has “glory fingers”


And the HUG Puppets stand for:


I’ve heard of teams called “Uplifted Hands” and saw one that said “Talk to the Hand”


These shirts aren’t from a team, they were for sale, and I was going to buy one and forgot! DOH!

What would name a puppet team? Does your team have a name? Leave a comment here, or if you are a Kidology member, comment in the discussion there!

Here is the puppet I bought interviewing a seven week old baby! ENJOY!

  1. Karl Tube! Cool! haha! Very interesting idea. Whateverhisnameis, sounds an awful lot like Kermit. Hmm…

  2. Karl, you are just way too cool!!!

  3. Cool post and video. I love when the baby leans in when you, er, I mean the interviewer gives her a kiss. Cute!!

  4. My church, Bethany Assembly of God, sponsors a wonderful puppet team called TNT: Trustin’ ‘N Testifyin’!

    We’re in the Springfield, Mass. area and we’ll host One Way Street’s annual New England Puppet Festival Friday-Saturday, OCTOBER 3-4, 2008.

    Enjoy first class performances and watch or participate in the puppetry and creative ministry competitions. Browse the huge assortment of puppetry, dowel rod, and other children’s ministry resources, Learn basic puppetry plus how to start a team, making props, clowning, ventriloquism, storytelling, and much more. Very inspiring and very affordable! Hope to see you next October!

  5. We had chosen the name 4 years ago “Talk to the Hand” and a complaint came from a women that it was not a nice saying so we canceled our shirts and went with Puppet Tales Ministery but it never caught on and we are now looking at doing new shirts and a new name. We are Calvery community church from Manteca Ca. and have been together for 5 years.

  6. We just stated our puppet team in January. We’ve just been calling ourselves the _PC Puppet team or puppet ministry. But, just yesterday we we’re discussing the fact that we need a better name. I went on line and found your post. I have posted a few times about our puppets. We have a performance tonight. I would love to be in on any puppet connections you have. Thanks My blog is juliassewsweetandspecial.blogspot.com

    julia r’s last blog post..# Two’s done, too!

  7. I am starting a puppet ministry with a church, and I have been seeking GOD’S word on a name. So far HE has given me (things related with sheep), I’m thinking GOD’S flock, but not really sure. May I ask for some other to give me some names that might be uplifting. This is a same group, but GOD started with only 12 when he went out.

  8. To anyone looking for an interesting name for a puppet ministry troupe, one that I was in years ago was the Hallelujah Hand Band. Just a thought for anyone seeking a bit of an unusual name for a new team, or a new name for an existing team.

  9. Ours is called PIT Crew. It’s a multi-faceted group. We do puppets, drama, children’s church, vbs songs etc. PIT Stands for Persevering In Truth.

    P.S. I can’t believe I missed this post from now almost 10 years ago. Maybe you should go back and find that girl and see how she’s doing now. ;) I bet her puppet skills have improved.

  10. YES! I would be fun to find that little baby some 10 years later! I hope she is doing puppets!
