"This is the second year that we have had Janine and her family perform for our Awards Celebration. They offer a great fun filled, jammed packed exciting performance! We had Janine and her family do 2 shows back to back for ages K-6. From start to finish they were a great show! Janine and her family do a great job keeping the kids and parents attention and she offers a great message to conclude. I would highly recommend them."

We just finished our end of the season Upward Celebration this week and Janine and her family did a great job! The comments I've received from the family's, coaches and staff have all been positive and each said they enjoyed the show! Ace Basketball was fun, energetic and spot on with the Gospel presentation. Their interaction with the crowd was great and involved numerous kids as part of their act. I would certainly recommend their performance with high regards! Great job Janine and Family!

"Janine was an absolutely outstanding entertainer for our 1st yr. b-ball celebration. I was impressed that even before the celebration began - she was out in the crowd intermingling with the parents/kids and doing her tricks. She had a good witness/testimony and everyone really enjoyed her ball handling skills and presentation - most importantly - the children. After the presentation - she spent alot of time talking with the kids and signing autographs. I/We HIGHLY recommend Janine for your celebration and we will definitely use her again in the future. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Janine for being a part of our great 1st year K-4 through 2nd grade basketball/cheerleading success."

"On behalf of all those involved in our Upward Basketball Program, I just wanted to say thanks for the wonderful way that you ministered to us during our Upward Awards Night. We feel very blessed that we were able to have you and your family with us for that evening. The feedback from both parents and children was outstanding. I thought your performance really enaged everyone, especially the kids, and I know that it was thoroughly enjoyed by both young and old. I also appreciated your motivational talk and your ministry and your life. We appreciated everything you did to help make our Awards Night a very special evening for everyone.
Again, thank you for serving us so well. We had a great evening and you helped to make it so. I hope that we can call on you again. May God bless you, your family and your ministry for many years to come."
Robbie Sondags, Children's Event Director, Indiana
"When one combines audience interaction and crowd participation like Janine does, it makes an incredible show that keeps people wanting more. Her 'can do' attitude was an overriding theme as she had volunteers up on stage and executed drills with them. Everyone who left the stage, felt like a winner! Janine did a wonderful job of tailoring her show to meet our needs. Her humble spirit and God-honoring appreciation for what she does proved to me that she is the real deal.....Janine can be used for any type of sport forum.....she's a perfect fit!"
Pastor Andrew N. - Warren, OH
"We are a small rural church in North Eastern Ohio and when Janine agreed to come and do her presentation for us we were very excited! When the whole Yoder clan arrived we knew we were in for a treat as they warmed up and set up their equipment. They had to modify their show slightly to fit our schedule for the evening but it was great! Very high energy with a lot of good crowd interaction all fit to a good, up-beat, and God honoring soundtrack. The family managed to keep every kid's attention for an extended period of time and then present the truth about Christ to them. We were very thankful for the Yoder's ministry to us! Thank you again for coming out - it was all fantastic!"

"Janine was incredible! We had our sanctuary packed out including over 250 kids. The way she kept their attention was amazing. As soon as Janine moved to start a new "trick" dozens of hands shot up to be chosen as the one to help. But she did more than just entertain, these kids got to hear about the love of Jesus and have the opportunity to ask Him into their hearts. That's why we do Upward! parents appreciate all we do in our Upward program and to end it with such a high-quality performance was perfect."
Jerry Taylor, Minister of Activities, West Colonial Hills Baptist Church
"It was our privilege and thrill to have Janine Yoder perform...Not only did Janine demonstrate her God given talents in ball handling, but her testimony had an impact on several people coming to know the Lord. God used Janine....in a mighty way. If you are looking for someone who really connects with the kids, Janine is the one. She is fun-loving, energetic performer for all ages. I highly recommend Janine."
Keith Ramey, Orebank Missionary Baptist Church, Kingsport, TN
"Janine was an absolute thrill to have at our Upward end of season celebration. She kept the children on the edge of their seats for her entire performance. She began entertaining the crowd as soon as they came in the door. Janine used her basketball skills , enthusiasm and beautiful singing voice to share a gospel message that resulted in lives being changed. I really liked the way she kept her audience involved in her performance. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
Connie Wagner, Resurrection Lutheran Church, Hilliard, OH
"Janine made our award celebration an afternoon to remember! She was a wonderful performer, speaker and singer. Her program was a perfect way to end our Upward Season - entertaining the players, cheerleaders, coaches and parents. Her basketball "tricks" and crowd participation were an added bonus. Most importantly, her message was right on the mark! Her enthusiasm is contagious. I would highly recommend Janine for any Upward or School program!"
