You never know what you might end up doing here at LifeWay VBS HQ. One day you’re just working away and the next thing you know, you’re being called in to help out on the video shoot for the Worship Rally dramas. Now our video producer, Lynne, is just about the nicest person you’ll ever meet, so when she calls… you come running! But I don’t think any of us knew how many people from LifeWay Kids’ Ministry actually made it INTO the videos until they came out.
Of course these are all cameo appearances… but I guess you could consider this our collective big screen debut. Be on the lookout for us in the Worship Rally videos this summer. Hope you enjoy this little sneak peek!
Angel Ortiz is the man behind all LifeWay Kids resources in Spanish. We are SO grateful to have him heading up the Spanish VBS team. Look for Angel and his lovely wife, Rosalía, as “the TV watching couple.”
James Hargrave’s day job is with 1st-2nd grade Sunday School (Bible Teaching for Kids). But it’s not uncommon to find this showman, magician, and all-around good guy lending a hand to the VBS team. James really loves VBS!
Richard VanCleave is married to our VBS team leader, Rhonda. He got tapped to play a lawyer, but we won’t hold that against him. Richard is actually an area pastor.
Lynne hates being on camera… so SSSHHH!!! Don’t tell her we put her picture up. Lynne looks pretty convincing as a boom operator, but she also served as the producer of these videos.
Here was my big break! See me? That’s my arm on the far right. Hollywood, here I come! A big thanks to Candace (the Queen of VBS), Landry Holmes (Kids Ministry Publishing managing director), and Jeremy (Kids Ministry graphic designer) for sharing the spotlight with me!
Surprise! There’s Gordon, one of our VBS graphic designers. Gordon whipped up the sign he’s holding in the picture and somehow ended up on camera when he delivered the sign to the site of the video shoot!
You’ll recognize Carol’s name from the many VBS products she edits, but her husband and son really earned their keep in a BIG way this year. They are responsible for the amazing toy roller coaster you will see featured in the video. Jeff and James spent TWO whole days constructing the roller coaster together… and still liked each other at the end!
Joyce Frazier’s name was mentioned on an earlier slide, but here she is sliding a t-shirt on the grand prize contest winner. I can’t tell you any more without spoiling the plot. You’ll just have to wait and see what’s going on here when you get the DVD!
