Do you want to fill your church with "un-churched" people,
and see them receive Jesus as Savior?
Do you want to encourage believers, and inspire them to use their gifts and talents to win souls, and build the body of Christ?
"It was our pleasure to have D.J. Edwards perform at our Upward Award Night. After catching the attention of 185 boys and girls through his magical act, he then gave a presentation of the Gospel and 60 of those kids made first time decisions to accept Christ. The follow-up on our part revealed how real those responses were.
D.J. has a gift for "putting the cookies on the lower shelf" so children can reach them. He gives the Gospel message in terms plain and simple.
We had D.J. back two months later for our Prayer Champion Banquet of sixty adults and 70 young people who are engaged in intercessory prayer throughout the school year, and again D.J. rang the bell.
We whole-heartedly endorse D.J. Edwards and his ministry. We are happy to recommend him to any church and Christian work."
Respectfully, Larry Potts, Pastor- Might Rivers, Cairo, IL
Get ready for a WONDER-FULL evening of wholesome family entertainment, and one of the clearest presentations of the Gospel you'll ever hear!
D.J. Edwards has been "wowing" audiences with incredible ILLUSIONS and SLEIGHT OF HAND for over 24 years! He is always quick to acknowledge the difference between these fun stage tricks, and the real magic that the Bible so clearly warns against.
Crowds are delighted as the impossible appears to take place before their eyes! They laugh like crazy at all the hilarious comedy! They're inspired by the moving, and SIMPLE, presentation of God's gift of salvation offered through Jesus Christ death at Calvary's Cross.
This event is so captivating... your community will WANT to walk into your building to see it. They will also hear a solid and simple presentation of God’s plan of salvation. This program is so effective it is “UNBELIEVABLE”.
My name is D.J. Edwards. I’ve been using my skill as a professional illusionist to present the Gospel for over 25 years, seeing thousands make decisions to follow Jesus.
I will provide your congregation with a promotional kit and plan to get your community into your building for an evening of wholesome family entertainment. You'll see amazing illusions, incredible juggling and hilarious comedy, all leading up to a CLEAR visual object lesson of the plan of salvation. An invitation will be given for those wanting to make a decision.
Would you be willing to host this soul winning event and have your church make a big impact on your community, schools, and families? I’ve been very blessed in doing this for over 2 decades, having done as many as 40 events in a single month. I would love to come and share Jesus in your area. Would you please give us a holler right now, while it’s fresh on your mind?
We can go over any questions you have, and even take a look at potential dates that might work for your congregation.
My heart beats for souls and also to see people receive the hope of Jesus for their lives. I’m confident that you feel the same. Please give me the opportunity to team up with you, and accomplish something great for the Kingdom.

D.J. is blessed to do as many as 20-30 programs a month, with bookings coming 6 months to a year or more in advance. We would love to bring this Jesus centered, very fun and effective, soul winning ministry to your church... but we need to hear from you ASAP!
Hear what others have to say...
"WOW! That's the word I would use to describe DJ Edwards performance at our recent children’s ministry outreach. From my first email to the very last magic trick DJ was such a pleasure to work with. His ability to engage with the kids, keep their attention, and do some TOP NOTCH tricks was second to none! I was completely blown away by the quality of the show and the quality of his message. He had it all… humor, entertainment, inspiration, and most importantly, a clear and concise presentation of the Gospel. If you’re looking for something that can reach across the age spectrum that's entertaining and inspiring, then look no further. DJ Edwards is your man!"

"D. J. Edwards was invited to appear at our Upward Awards Night this year, and he was a virtual “slam dunk.” The kids loved his presentation, and sixty boys and girls made first-time decisions for Christ. In our 19 years of doing Upward, this was the greatest Awards Night we have ever had. We recommend D. J. to any and every Upward Sports program."
LARRY POTTS/ SENIOR PASTOR/ MIGHTY RIVERS REGIONAL WORSHIP CENTER, CAIRO IL
"You did a wonderful job with sharing the gospel in a way that the kids understood. They were so engaged the whole time. We had 29 kids get saved! PTL!!!! This is our 9th year of Upward and it was the best gospel presentation ever!! Great Job and Thank You so much!! "
LISA HILLS/ UPWARD DIRECTOR/ FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, VAN BUREN, MO
We’ve had entertainment for our year end Upwards award ceremony for the last 25 years. DJ’s show was by far the best. The magic was amazing. He was entertaining and sincere. His gospel presentation was spot on and simple enough for both kids and adults. I look forward to having him back at the church next year!!!
RALEIGH ABELL/ UPWARD SPORTS/ FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, OWENSVILLE, MO
Our program hosted DJ Edwards as our end of season entertainment. His presentation not only kept the audience (Kindergarten to High School, along with adults) entertained and captivated but his Gospel presentation was so effective! We had pastors in attendance and they even agreed that his presentation of the Gospel message was one of the best they’ve seen. DJ will definitely be someone we contact for future use at our events. We had over 10 students receive Christ through DJ’s Gospel presentation! That outcome was overwhelming and such a blessing! I would highly recommend having him at your next event!
TERRY & DANA LAWRENCE/UPWARD DIRECTORS/CANAAN BAPTIST, ST LOUIS, MO
Master Magician DJ Edwards did a great job keeping the kids focused, entertained, and most importantly presented the gospel story and what it means to say the prayer of forgiveness! He was very easy to work with and just what our program needed. We had several who came forward for the altar call and then followed up with Upward volunteers and staff with their own questions. Baptisms are a huge part of our program and his presentation went right along with our purpose. Thank you DJ!!!
MATT BOHLMANN/UPWARD DIRECTOR/FIRST CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE, DECATUR, IL
"Master Magician DJ Edwards was a phenomenal addition to our inaugural season of Upward Indoor Soccer (2017)! I believe it was a God-thing for us to get connected the way we did and I am so thankful. Not only did Pastor DJ work us into an already packed schedule, he was willing to work with us in a number of different ways to make it possible. As much as everyone loved the illusions that he performed, I was most impressed by the way he integrated the gospel throughout his presentation, not just at the end. I couldn't be more pleased by what he brought to the table. He was courteous, professional, friendly, funny and gifted in his craft. I would recommend him to anyone considering him for their event."
PASTOR RICHARD/ FIRST CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE/ SIKESTON, MO
"We had D.J. for our Upward Basketball awards ceremony (2017). The show was top notch! D.J. captivated the audience from the youngest to the oldest. The interaction was outstanding. We can’t wait to have him back"
JOSH RINKER / UPWARD DIRECTOR, YOUTH PASTOR, FMC/ FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH/ DESLOGE, MO
"I have been close friends with D.J. Edwards for over a decade. His life and ministry have been a tremendous blessing to me and my church.
He is a man of excellence. He is a man on a mission to bring the Good News of God's great love and grace to people all over the world… not only through dynamic, anointed teaching and preaching, but also through his faith-based, family friendly, magic/illusion shows.
Everything that D.J. Edwards does is done with extreme class and quality. I have had him minister at The Grace Center many times, and I have been blessed to attend several of his magic shows. His ability to connect with people in the pulpit and through his magic shows is amazing. He has an uncanny ability to reach people of all ages.
This Man of God, his ministry, and D.J. Edwards Family Entertainment come with my highest recommendation. Book him today! He will bless you immensely."
PASTOR RYAN SUTTON/ THE GRACE CENTER/ FESTUS, MO
"D.J. has ministered at our church several times and the response has always been very positive. His ability to draw people in with his illusions then present them with a Biblical truth is truly an amazing way of presenting modern-day parables people will not soon forget.
In my opinion D.J. is a top-notch illusionist but more important is his heart that loves God and people. I have no hesitation recommending D.J. Edwards to minister in any church or event. He will be a tremendous blessing."
REV. BRIAN SHARP / PRESIDENT, WORLD MINISTRY FELLOWSHIP / DALLAS, TX
"I personally have known D.J. for approximately 15 years. He has a keen sense of discernment and the ability to adapt his fundamental teachings and “magic” to any audience. Whether D.J. is ministering to a church, school, or daycare… he has the ability to relate to all age groups effectively.
His ministerial integrity is beyond reproach. His sensitivity to the Holy Spirit is remarkable.
I highly recommend D.J. Edwards to minister Grace to the hearers, joy and comfort to the discouraged! You will not be disappointed. In fact you will say “Wow”!"
PASTOR JERRY MOORE / NEW COVENANT FELLOWSHIP / POPLAR BLUFF, MO
"D.J. Edwards did a wonderful job on conducting our revival in April 2015. D.J.’s use of his gifts and talents brought the word of God to life in a unique way. Every night was something special and the congregation loved every moment.
D.J. loves the Lord and desires to see God work in each ministry opportunity he receives. My working experience with D.J. was great and he was willing to fit himself in where I needed him to minister. For example; I wanted one night of the revival to be a “family magic show” night where we can invite the community in and share the Gospel with them. D.J. had no problem preparing a great event that presented the “Good News” of Jesus in such a special way.
Not only were the membership ministered too, but the community as well.
I recommend D.J. Edwards for any ministry event where you desire to have the word of God presented in a special way that will capture the hearts and minds of all those that attend. It was also refreshing working with a man in ministry who loves the Lord and who allows His Spirit to guide his life."
PASTOR MARK WINN / FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH / LESTERVILLE, MO
"You may be fooled by his tricks, but you won't be fooled by the Message. I heartily recommend this engaging, fun and powerful presentation for anyone looking to make a lasting impact in the hearts and minds of people."
