Herdsmen Puppets is a Bible/Family based group that uses Puppets and Balloons to teach, encourage, and bring Joy to others.
James and Shannon started Puppets as kids with their Moms in Children's Ministry at their local churches. Many years later, after they are married with 2 girls, James found some puppets in a closet at a Church they helped as Children workers. James remembered the days when an Evangelist would use Puppets for Vacation Bible School and preach to the parents that night with the idea of the puppet shows. After this day Herdsmen Puppets was born.
Over the past 10 years we have been gathering many Puppets and Ideas to help with many Church's and Vacation Bible schools in many places. We have had Fun at birthday parties and other events too.
In 2009 James went on his first oversea Mission trip to Dominican Republic where he enjoyed teaching puppetry and leaving many new puppets with the churches there.
Other trips we have sent puppets on include Colombia South America and Brazil to go down the Amazon river.
In 2015 we helped Keep Toledo Lucas County Beautiful Create a new mascot and puppet show.
In 2019 we helped create a new puppet mascot show for Stark - Tuscarawas - Wayne county Time to Recycle program.
In 2020 we learned how to build puppets and more about Green screen puppetry.
In 2022 Hannah Ellis has been growing into the business starting to do more shows.
Our Mission is to Reach the Heart with Puppets.
We follow a simple rule, Have Puppets Will Travel.
