Since it's origins in the 1870's, the methods of VBS have changed while the mission remains constant. This year especially, kids need a faith-filled experience to point them to the One who can guide them through difficult times and all of life.

This series of videos will help you adjust the methods to fulfill your mission.

• Meaningful perspective and ideas to help you get traction
• Clarified purpose for facilitating a VBS program - whether it’s delayed, modified, or re-imagined entirely
• Speakers who are either VBS resource experts or seasoned children's ministry leaders
• Parts 1, 2 and 3 feature different panel topics. The full length video includes an additional Q & A session at the end, with a run time around 1 hour, 45 minutes)

Panels 2, 3, and Encouragement
