Nels Ross -
Inspire Faith, Hope, Love & Joy
Nels Ross entertains and uplifts people. As a variety entertainer and speaker, he believes mirthful laughter is a cup of water to thirsty souls. As a Christian, he shares faith, hope, love, and joy… All “in jest,” or in fun.
Employing comedy and juggling to engage and illustrate, Nels highlights gospel themes such as grace, peace, service, and generosity for award nights, banquets, camps, conferences, retreats, fundraisers, worship services, and other events – virtual and in-person – with adult, youth, and family audiences.
In addition to churches and ministries such as Upward Sports, Iron Sharpens Iron, SCORE, and Kingdom Bound, Nels works with mission trips, temples, synagogues, mosques… and secular groups. (Ministry doesn’t have to be religious.) He’s honored to work with all who love God and neighbor.
✶ VIRTUAL and IN-PERSON programs available.
