VBS: A Most Effective Evangelism
By Lonnie Wilkey
Vacation Bible School has been around for decades, but it is still one of the most effective evangelism tools in the Southern Baptist Convention, according to two Tennessee Baptist Convention specialists. “In Tennessee Baptist life we know that approximately 25 percent of our professions of faith come either through VBS or Backyard Kids Clubs,” said Steve Pearson, TBC evangelism specialist.
A couple of weeks ago, the church staff talked briefly about Vacation Bible School with our VBS director, Laural Baker. First off, yes, that time of the year is fast approaching. Secondly, we need people to begin praying about either teaching or helping during this year's VBS. Finally, pray for the children who will come to this campus. May they see the love of Jesus through us and in us. May something said or done here bring them to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
