Kristofer Sommerfeld is a respected puppeteer and puppet builder in the field of Christian Puppetry and teaches at 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.
In 2012, he had the opportunity to meet Kevin Clash (former puppeteer of Elmo) and was able to show him some of his work. Clash was impressed with his skills and this led to a personal invitation to the Jim Henson Company workshop in Long Island City, NY as well as a visit to the set of “Sesame Street” at Kauffman Astoria Studios.
Kristofer was labeled as a professional puppeteer while still in his teen years. He received his training from some of the nation’s top puppeteers.
He is now a respected puppeteer and puppet builder in the field of Christian Puppetry and teaches at national and regional conferences as well as “one-on-one – team training” for churches and ministries.
Kristofer has worked on a number of productions throughout his life. This includes stage and film presentations. He also produces a number of products for his family’s ministry – Evergreen Creative Ministries™.
