Introducing Atlanta’s Top Christian Illusionist, Magician, and Speaker

astonishingtruth02Are you looking for something fun, educational, and maybe just a little bit different to add to your programs for children, students, and even the adults in your congregation and community? Something that will make one particular service stand out? Something that will draw attention to a specific topic you’re emphasizing? Something fun and wholesome that would make for an exciting, crowd-pleasing community outreach event?

If so, read on!

Astonishing Truth Ministries founder Joe M. Turner has spent most of his life studying three things:

  • How to entertain people, especially through the use of illusion and sleight-of-hand,
  • How to educate people, helping them internalize important messages,
  • How to encourage people to come to know Jesus Christ and understand what He did for us.


Programs for Children, Students, and Adults


Joe has presented Christian illusion programs at churches all over America, Canada, Latvia, and at educational conferences at home and abroad, such as the SHARE Conference in Hungary.

  • Some programs are designed for Upward celebrations as well as at other children’s events such as fairs, picnics, or events for Awanas, R.A.s, G.A.s or children’s choirs.
  • Some programs are educational presentations on cult awareness geared to middle-school and/or senior-high youth. These young people — who are most at risk from confusing messages and competing worldviews — can benefit greatly from early training in basic apologetics.
  • Some programs take the form of entertainment at luncheons, banquets or other social functions for adults.

Joe can customize programs to fit the themes and messages you are trying hardest to deliver.


What To Expect

astonishingtruth07One thing that all these programs share is this: every single time you see Joe perform you are guaranteed to experience the thrill of the art of illusion and, more importantly, to learn something about Jesus Christ in the process.

Planning and managing ministry programs for young people is an awesome and extremely challenging responsibility. Joe considers it a privilege to be led by God in providing assistance to you both as a professional entertainer and as a lay minister with the gifts of teaching and leadership.
