James’ magic is hilarious and entertaining… an absolutely wonderful show!
James Hargrave is a great communicator, encourager, magician, and Sunday School leader! He far surpassed our expectations! James related well to our Sunday School leaders, who range in age from young 20’s to late 60’s. He brought humor, insight, and sound biblical truths that spoke to the hearts of our leaders.
James is adept at using magic tricks to entertain and teach. Not only is his magic engaging and even bewildering, it is loads of fun! Our people loved it! We would be honored to have James come back and encourage our Sunday School leaders again. What a great evening he brought to us! I heartily recommend him to any and every church.
James Hargrave is the best magician I have ever seen in my entire life!
