“Your performance today kept all of our UPWARD players, coaches and fans excited and entertained all the way through. Your combination of humor, amazing juggling skills, and powerful and inspirational messaging was a perfect fit for our UPWARD closing program. While all of the speakers that UPWARD has recommended have been terrific, yours was the most entertaining and powerful program that we have ever had. You reached people and brought people to Christ today. Thank you!”

Craig Wright, Co-Director of Grace Church Upward Basketball in Morton, IL.


“David Cain, the Juggler for Jesus, was our Awards Night speaker and did a wonderful job of delivering the Gospel to over 500 people on this night. His style was perfect for our audience, as he not only awed the crowd with his talent, but also kept them in stitches with his comedic delivery. Throughout the evening, he performed while delivering messages about faith, sin, Christian living and prayer. The evening culminated with an invitation by David that saw a record number of kids come forward to give their life to Christ. All in all, this was a wonderful night for our program and I would highly recommend David to any church looking for a Christian performer to bring the season to a successful close.”

Rick Goodman, Upward Basketball Director Grace Baptist Church, Indianapolis, Indiana


“We just had David in again for the third time and as always he was great. He keeps the kids’ attention while sharing the gospel in a simple powerful message. You will be greatly satisfied with his ministry.”

Jim Marcum, Upward Basketball Director


“David was amazing. We had him for our Flag Football awards ceremony. He’s the only performer I’ve seen that juggles footballs. He incorporated Bible stories into everything he did. I would highly recommend him!”
