Services and Events by Tracy DeGraaf

I use humor in combination with inspirational Biblical truths to make audiences laugh out loud and inspire them at the same time.

My brand of comedy is a great fit for events such as: Church Ladies Night Out, Conferences, Date Night, Moms Groups, Homeschooling Events, Guest Speaker for Weekend Services, Mother/Daughter Events, Women’s Ministry Events, etc. I’ve also provided squeaky-clean comedy for schools, colleges, and corporate events.

 

Outreach Events

 

So you’re called to share the gospel message, but you want something different…you want something FUN!

That’s me! Different and FUN…and a I’m a clean Christian comedian located near Chicago bringing the message of hope to all who will listen!

First of all, let me tell you…I’ve been in your shoes! I was on staff at my church for five years, and it was my job was to coordinate outreach events that provided a fun introduction to our faith community. That’s exactly what hosting my one-woman Christian comedy outreach event “Life Happens Laugh Anyway” will do for your church.

Click here to watch a four-minute video of me basically inviting myself over.

How will hosting a Life Happens Laugh Anyway event bless your church?

Won’t cost the church money. All expenses are covered by ticket sales. Every church that I’ve worked with since 2009 has come out with extra funds in hand. All you have to do is follow my plan outlined in “The Blueprint,” (a guide I created to help you host a successful event) and you’ll be sure to fill your building with laughter.

Won’t cost the church a lot of time. Again, follow the “The Blueprint” and you’ll have a successful event. All you need is a handful of faithful volunteers to execute the plan.

Will bring first timers to your church! Hosting this event gives your people an opportunity to invite their friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, etc. into your church building! This is HUGE! Read the story of Susan and how attending a comedy event was the beginning of her faith story! Crazy encouraging!!

 

Guest Speaking for Weekend Services

Every church needs a guest speaker from time to time whether it’s to cover a vacation, sabbatical, or to fit a theme for a special event, I welcome the opportunity to serve your faith community as a guest speaker. Here’s a peek at a message I gave on Mother’s Day at Calvary Church in Orland Park, IL. I did an alter call at the end (with permission, of course) and was blown away by what the Holy Spirit did. And, listen to this audio message where I spoke on the topic of unanswered prayer and sin. The Holy Spirit just plain took over on that one! You have to listen to it to know what I mean. The bottom line is, if you’re okay with having a female Christian Author, Speaker and Stand-up Comedian who does her best to get out of the way and just let the Holy Spirit speak… I’m your gal!

 

 

Corporate, Non-Profit and Organization Events

Need to add laughter to an event? I would love to serve you in that way. I’ve had the pleasure of providing squeaky-clean laughs for hospitals, counseling centers, civic organizations, and more. I’m especially passionate about guest speaking at Breast Cancer Awareness events, as I am a Breast Cancer survivor. I can provide a keynote humorous presentation, workshop presentation, stand-up comedy, and Emcee services.
