Most of you reading this title for this blog post are probably thinking, "Wait a minute, where's the Agency in D3?" No, I have not forgotten or even misprinted this title. D3 is the title for Student VBS in 2014. Yes, you read that correctly. LifeWay does have Student VBS curriculum, and in fact we have Adult VBS curriculum as well. That's right, when we say we have you covered from birth to death, that includes VBS. We not only want kids to know how to discover, decide, and defend their faith, we want to equip students and adults to do the same.
Students are pressured on all sides to accept what teachers, professors, peers, and sometimes even family tell them about Jesus. It's time for them to discover the facts about who Jesus is, decide what they will do with the evidence they've gathered, and step out in faith to defend what they believe.
Student VBS can be held at the same time as your children's VBS, as camp curriculum for Student Camp, Bible study for Sunday or Wednesday nights, or as a weekend retreat.
And if you are looking for a way to get Students excited about defending their faith, consider taking your students to see the movie God's Not Dead that is releasing in the Spring of 2014. Watching the movie would be a great kickoff or follow-up to D3.
For those of you out there who already use Student VBS, we would love for you to share your advice, experiences, and ideas.
