Gospel Magician

About Charles Nichols

I have been a Christian since 1991 and I have had the desire to serve God in full-time ministry. In 2012, we took a family vacation to Disney World. While at one of the theme parks, my wife and I were hot and tired so we decided to go in and watch a free magic show. We figured we could rest in air conditioning and be entertained as well. We were so intrigued with the magic tricks and presentation that we decided to buy the whole kit. When we returned home I began to practice with the tricks and God began showing me how I could tell others about the love of God and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through tricks and illusions. God used a family vacation to Disney World to call me into this ministry and since it began it has grown and we are believing God that it will continue to grow. We are a non-denominational ministry and our only goal is to evangelize children, as well as adults, with the Gospel through tricks and illusions. My first show was done for the children in children's church at our church, and the character Awesome Charles was born, as named by the children of our church. Though we do include tricks that are just for fun and have no Gospel message, we will NOT do any event without sharing the good news about Jesus Christ and God's love for His creation. This is the main focus of what we do, glorifying Him, proclaiming His name, and exalting Him throughout the world. Mark 16:15 tells us, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. And wherever the Lord sends us, in, and through, this ministry, this we will do.
