International Festival of Creative Arts Ministry (I-Fest)
A project by Dale VonSeggen
From 1995 to 2010, the "International Festival of Christian Puppetry and Ventriloquism," or "I-Fest", was held in Bourbonnais, Illinois at Olivet Nazarene University. The attendances averaged about 700 teens and adults each year, with a high of 1,100.
The original sponsoring ministry was One Way Street, Inc., which became "Creative Ministry Solutions" in 2011. Our desire is to "Bring Back" I-Fest July 6-10, 2015 and to call it the "International Festival of Creative Arts Ministry"
I-Fest will be five days filled with lots of workshops, performances, competitions, hands-on workshops, and inspiration for puppeteers, ventriloquists, stick ministry, hand mime, gospel illusion, human video, and other creative ministry techniques. On campus housing, great food, and central USA location just south of Chicago make Olivet an excellent venue for I-Fest '15. We'll have a select "Dream Team" for young, experienced puppeteers, and a large "shopping mall" filled with creative ministry resources of all kinds.
Our vision is to have a fabulous four-day training event with 500 or more teens and adults who are excited about learning and sharing creative ministry skills. Your donation through Faithlauncher will be used for a deposit to secure the use of the college's facilities, and for printing and postage for the promotion of the event.
