The Fellowship of Christian Puppeteers is not-for-profit organization powered by many dedicated volunteers who lovingly offer their time and expertise to support our organization and members.
Kristofer Sommerfeld is a respected puppeteer and puppet builder in the field of Christian Puppetry and teaches at international, national and regional conferences as well as “one-on-one – team training” for churches and ministries.
He is a master puppeteer as well as an advanced puppet designer/builder. He has been involved in puppetry, creative arts and children’s ministries for most of his life. His ministry experience began with kids camps, children’s church, school clubs, and YMCA preschool clubs.
His ultimate passion is for people to know the true Heart of God and His love for them. He loves to see God do the “impossible” and bring complete healing to people – body, soul and spirit – through Christ’s finished work on the cross and His resurrection.
Kristofer is currently serving as the President of the Fellowship of Christian Puppeteers organization and the Director of Evergreen Creative Ministries™.
Patsy has been been a member since 1988 and has been working with and making puppets for 25 years. She has been teaching children's church for 45 years.
She has been on two mission trips to Honduras where she taught how to make and manipulate puppets. She also has puppets in Ecuador, Philippines, and China.
Patsy has been involved in FCP for 20+ years where she has served as secretary and registrar. She is currently serving as the secretary of FCP and is excited about the future of the organization.
Bill Scott, a retired pastor from southeastern Pennsylvania, has had a life-long interest in puppetry, integrating into many aspects of his ministry. In addition to his own pastoral work, he has led workshops and worked with local congregations, Sunday School associations, and Christian schools to equip others to use puppets in classrooms, children’s ministry, outreach, and short-term mission projects.
A member of FCP since 1977, he has served several times as an officer, conference director, conference chaplain, resource consultant and assisting the organization in many other ways.
Bill is also involved with the Puppeteers of America and the Greater Philadelphia Area Puppetry Guild. Currently, he serves as the Religion Consultant and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Director for the Puppeteers of America.
Gabriel is an emerging voice in creative ministry and children's ministry and has been passionately involved creative arts since 2002. At the age of 18, he left his first director role with crushed spirits when his then-pastor told him that "puppets could never be a ministry..."
Thankfully, he found much-needed encouragement to continue using his gifts at a puppetry festival shortly after. With that and other nudges from above, he hasn't turned back since and God has accomplished infinitely more than he might have ever imagined!
Gabriel has a heart for teaching young people the value of pouring their gifts at Christ's feet. He is the director of "Create, Minister, Teach!” of Iglesia Jesuscristo Es El Señor. They enjoy blending powerful stories with diverse art forms to share the Gospel message.
He has also had the privilege of teaching and performing regionally, nationally and internationally for conferences and events and training teams in Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua and Ecuador.
