Team Word Play Quotes
“I’ve worked with funny people my entire career and I know funny. As a father of three I also know parenting and I can tell you that the rules in Ryan’s book are hysterically funny and 100% true!”
- Dean Holland – Exec Producer/Director “Parks and Recreation”, “The Office”, “Brooklyn 99”
I’ve heard from the kids in my youth group how awesome Team Wordplay is, but I never fully understood until this week. Y’all are just amazing. I don’t know how to even describe how much y’all blessed me with the skit about what it looks like when we treat God like the rest of our friends. Just know that it’s not just the students God reaches through you, but the sponsors too!

Both Chris and Ryan were wonderful servants of Christ. These guys were easy to work with, responded well to our people, and worked very hard at presenting a solid biblical word through humor to our three different services! We enjoyed them and would love to have them when more time could be given to them, especially having them interact with the congregation. You won’t be disappointed!

These guys rock! (TWP) Book them for your next outreach event!

Ryan and Chris provided belly laugh humor with hard hitting truth. Our people really enjoyed them.

Year after year, I have listened to high school students talk about how one of the biggest pieces of truth that resonated in them from summer camp came from a Team WordPlay skit. Team WordPlay does an incredible job of teaching the gospel through funny, relevant skits that students relate to and understand. Literally ten days ago, a student quoted a Team WordPlay skit to me that she saw over TWO YEARS AGO! That’s why we bring Team WordPlay back: they teach the gospel of Jesus in a way that sticks.

“Our teens loved Team Word Play, and loved the interaction/involvement with Ryan and Wes! Good clean and wholesome fun. Thanks for putting on a quality event of us.”
- Matt Henderson – Frontier Camp – Grapeland, TX
Humor has long been the strongest bridge to the heart. In a time when people are so spiritually jaded, Ryan and Chris (Team WordPlay) have perfected the rare art of connecting to the soul through side-splitting, hysterical perspective, all the while making Truth come alive. Most use comedy as an attractive side note. Team WordPlay is the perfect choice to be the primary voice for your next event.

Ryan and Chris present the truth of the gospel and what following Christ looks like using humor, improv, and impersonations. Students especially roared with the impersonations and the poignant message that was driven home through the impromptu impersonations. It made the truth that believers often wear so many different faces to please others, that we never really discover who we really are in Christ! Team WordPlay is built on authenticity and no pretense, and that is one of the most effective and winsome aspects of this duo, especially since the university generation seek the “real deal” and can spot a phony a mile away! The UC BCM was blessed and honored to host Team WordPlay, sharing the gospel to our entire campus through them!

Awesome! Our students lives have been affected forever. You made them laugh and smile, but more importantly think!
- Tom Stickney – VRBC Student Ministries – Annual Winter Conference
Ryan and Chris did a great job for us this summer at our premier high school event Fun in the Son. Their blend of comedy, relevance, and Biblical truth was a good match for our conference event. The guys were a pleasure to serve with as well, always accommodating and attending to our students.
