Pastor to the Carnies

SEDALIA, Mo. - The Rev. John Vakulskas walks tall here in the midway, among the wirling rides and twinkling lights, where the scent of cotton candy wafts and the playful cries of children resound.
This is his church. These are his parishioners.
For 35 years, Vakulskas has ministered to ride operators and game booth attendants — folks who spend their lives on the road, who raise children expected to follow in their footsteps, called "carnies" by outsiders.
