Child preacher

In some branches of Christianity, especially American pentecostalism, children are occasionally preachers, or even ordained ministers. The heyday of child preachers was in the 1920s and 1930s, but a number of videos of modern-day child preachers can be seen on YouTube.

One of the most prominent child preachers was Marjoe Gortner, who starred in the 1972 documentary Marjoe.

According to Randall Balmer, the appeal of having child preachers is in its novelty, making it "a kind of a carnival side-show".
