Prayer:

  • Emphasize that Vacation Bible School is a Spiritual Event and encourage prayer.
  • Observe National Day of Prayer for VBS on May 15, 2016 and pray that people are saved.

Plan Thoroughly:

  • Start early by setting the date for VBS involving the pastor and staff.
  • Publicize the date and time and purchases curriculum and supplies.
  • Be intentionally evangelistic in planning for a good ending; plan to see people saved.

Budget According to the Importance of the Event:

  • If Vacation Bible School is the largest evangelistic event planned by a church, funds should be provided.
  • Involve leadership in establishing how budget is used.

Enlist Properly and Provide Training for Leaders:

  • Every church member should have an opportunity to be involved.
  • Enlist leaders face to face with expectancy. VBS is the best week of the year.
  • The pastor should have opportunity to encourage VBS leaders and challenge them.
  • Plan for follow-up of un-churched children as you enlist leaders.

Promote the event Early and Often:

  • Use every media outlet possible, many offer free advertising.
  • Involve the children of the church in the spring before school is out. Allow them to help plan decorations so they may tell their friends about plans for VBS.

Follow-up with contact to un-churched and celebrate the result of VBS:

  • Ask leaders to be diligent in taking information: name, address, phone, etc.
  • Contact families during the week of VBS, teacher visits are great first steps.
  • Be sure that FAITH, NET, EE teams visit prospects immediately after VBS.
  • Celebrate the results of VBS in the Worship Service after VBS concludes.
  • Recognize those who taught, prayed, or contributed to VBS.
