Scott Obermann is a family entertainer who travels throughout the midwest delighting audiences with his interesting mix of comedy and illusion. In the church, Scotts program is not mere entertainment. It is a unique way of presenting the truths of the Bible and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
His interest began when at the age of 12 Scott received a magic kit for christmas. Like most boys his age, he was fascinated by the tricks but eventually set them aside for other priorities. Then in 1995, Scott's interest was reignited when he was asked to perform for a church outreach event. That one performance inspired him and led him toward a full-time career entertaining, teaching, and ministering to families.
Using the art of illusion is a unique way to present the truths of the gospel. Scott mixes "magical" Christ-centered object lessons with plenty of audience interaction and fun to present his Gospel Magic programs. 45 minutes of fun entertainment as bible truths are illustrated in a manner that will be long remembered.
Scott presents each program so that it is appropriate to the age-group involved. That makes this is a great program for Sunday School, Children's Church, Church Banquets or Community Church Outreaches.
"Hear powerful Christ - centered messages while seeing amazing illusions".
|It was a fabulous show! Boy, did we have many great comments! The kids were all so curious, and couldn't stop talking about it! We had a great turnout, and I appreciated everything! Parents were expressing how nice it was that you integrated the Bible Lessons with what you were doing!

|Thank you so very much for blessing our church with your special gift. You were absolutely amazing and your message to the children and adults was phenomenal. The adults just raved about how great you were, and the children were telling their parents. In fact, one dad said, “WOW, my son just has not stopped talking about Great Scott. Great choice.”

A question that arises sometimes is voiced similar to this, "Should magic be used in the church?" Rest assured that Scott does not do supernatural things or claim supernatural powers. He does not perform miracles -- Only God Himself can do miracles. But by using the art of illusion, Scott is able to entertain and teach at the same time. The "magic" is nothing more than clever tricks that serve as a vehicle to draw attention and allow a Biblical message to be conveyed to watching eyes and listening ears.
Many Pastors use 'props' at times to serve as object lessons. A Pastor may hold a dollar bill in the air and use it as a focal point as he talk's about the temporal nature of money. Scott may use a $100 bill in much the same fashion. However, when it vanishes before your eyes, it drives the point home all the more. Money is fleeting.
So, Scott mixes object lessons, magic, puppets (adults love Scott's routines), and music to create a wonderful presentation for your church or outreach.
