Vacation Bible School has be a vital part of church minstry since 1898 and is used by more than 25,000 churches each year to reach 2.5 million people. Last year, more than 70,000 salvation decisions were reported as a direct result of VBS. VBS isn't just about fun, games, and snacks. Its primary purpose is leading people to experience the life-transforming power of the gospel.
Throw on your camera strap and buckle your seatbelt. VBS 2019 takes you on a wild adventure—with elephants and egrets, polar bears and penguins, cockatoos and crocodiles. As you seek out exotic animals, you’ll also find snapshots of real-life encounters with Jesus in Scripture. Kids go from bewildered to believing as they get “In the Wild” at this summer’s VBS.
But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. John 20:31 (CSB)

You can rest assured that all aspects of your VBS will include age-appropriate outreach. Your church will have the opportunity to establish ongoing relationships with everyone who attends. On average, 10 percent of kids who attend VBS are not associated with a church family. For the average VBS, 10 percent equals 10 people. Would discovering 10 people, and starting a relationship with them, be a big deal for your church?
Everything that happens during VBS grows out of the biblical content. Kids can connect to God’s Word in a creative setting where the gospel message can speak into their hearts.
VBS is exciting! LifeWay’s VBS is flexible to meet your church’s needs. Backyard Kids Club can help you take your event out of the church and into the community or onto the mission field.
