Reaching Families with the Good News of the Gospel
An Independent Baptist Ministry of Evangelism and Christian Education
We are Tim, Susan and Rachel Vermaas with Good News for Little People. We are a conservative, Independent Baptist ministry
does Vacatione Schools, Family Crusades and Kid's Crusades. Along with these meetings we also conduct Teacher Training. Our goal is the evangelism of children and their families through this missions endeavor. Brother Tim uses
King James Version of the Bible to communicate the Gospel. It isre to share the Good News of Salvation so that many will make the decision of accepting Christ so that one day Heaven will be their eternal Home. We use ventriloquism and puppets as a tool to reinforce the message time. Tim also uses illusions or magic to teach Bible truths that correspond with the message of the evening.
