To many people and churches in Louisiana Vacation Bible School is like Christmas in the summer. It is simply the most wonderful time of the year. Vacation Bible School still serves as the largest evangelistic event that a church can be a part of. With this all in mind, the Childhood Ministry Office serves as the training center and resource center for Vacation Bible School every year.

Vacation Bible School is the single largest evangelistic opportunity a church will have all year long.

While LifeWay VBS is the primary focus of our training we are more than happy to help give a church direction and help on an individual basis if they feel led to select another VBS theme. We are also available to help individual churches think through VBS opportunities in their communities such as Backyard Bible Clubs, Apartment VBS Ministry and many other ideas. Please do not hesitate to contact the Children’s Ministry Office for more information.

One more opportunity for smaller churches is to request a GOLA VBS College Team. Please click here for more information about this incredible opportunity.
