What is LīF?
LīF (Lost is Found) is a juggling ministry team formed through JUGHEADS Youth Juggling Company that performs throughout the Twin Cities area. This small group of performers ranging in age from 10–28 years old tell the story of The Prodigal Son through a creative and dramatic juggling performance set to the song, “The Prodigal Son Suite” by the late Keith Green. The message of this song, taken from Luke 15:11-32, has the potential to touch many people at very different stages in their life’s journey. It is for the lost souls that have walked away from God and wonder if God still loves them and if there are any more second chances. It is for the parent or friend who has watched a loved one make terrible choices and is praying for change and healing. Its is for anyone who needs a message of encouragement, hope, and forgiveness.
How long is the performance?
The routine itself is 12.5 minutes long, but we also have a 7-minute introduction that can be added. The introduction includes a dramatic recitation of the Prodigal Son parable found in the Gospel of Luke. A time for Q&A and juggling demonstrations could also be added at the end. So, depending on your available time, the time range of our performance is 12.5 – 30 minutes.
Do you charge for a performance?
We are an all-volunteer performance ministry that does not charge to perform for your church, youth group, or community group. However, any donations or love offerings to our group will be put back into the ministry to enhance our performance with costuming, props, coaching, and a potential youth scholarship fund.
When do you book performances?
The team is committed to being available for performances for up to two Wednesday nights and two Sunday mornings a month during these timeframes:
- December 2–12, 2018;
- January 13, 16 and 23–March 13, 2019:
