What if I don’t have any VBS leaders?
That’s okay! We have an awesome Leader Recruitment Video to help you spread the word. This clip covers a lot of the questions and doubts that run through the minds of potential VBS leaders and helpers.
“What if I’m no Bible scholar?” You don’t need to be! LifeWay’s VBS materials provide all the content.
“What if I’m no school teacher?” That’s okay! LifeWay’s VBS materials provide easy step-by-step instructions. So any one can teach a VBS class. No experience necessary.
“What if I’m not crafty?” No problem. LifeWay’s Craft Packs provide the materials for up to 10 kids to make their own VBS souvenir. No extra shopping and no craftiness required.
“What if I’m tone deaf?” Just pop the VBS 2011 Music Rotation and Musical CD and turn it up! The Worship Rally DVD provides motions to all the songs. You can even allow Jeff Slaughter to teach the motions to the kids via the Worship Rally DVD clip
And now, one of the most common questions of all . . . “What if kids scare me?”
We understand that not everyone is “kid friendly.” There are plenty of other ways to be involved with VBS: prayer, decorating, and donating supplies—just to name a few.
The best way to recruit VBS leaders is to get out there and start spreading the word as soon as your VBS dates are on the calendar. Try using the VBS 2011 Leader Recruitment Video in your worship service, or post it on your Facebook page. Ask people to help with VBS and give them the freedom to choose an area of interest. You just may be surprised at how many new faces you’ll see.
