When it comes to events as large as Preview we are always planning a year or more in advance. We have Preview dates on the calendar of one location for the year 2020.
Evaluation is a big part of planning. We are continually evaluating throughout the events. In fact, we made changes to the Fort Worth and Nashville Previews based on evaluations from guests attending the Ridgecrest Preview. In addition to evaluating as we go, the team gathers within a few days of the last event to hear from each other and to read the evaluations submitted by guests. We take time to evaluate because we want to make sure Preview continues to be a fun and relevant experience for both those who attend every year as well as VBS leaders who will attend for the very first time.
There is no time better than today to begin making plans to join us for VBS 2016 Preview. Registration information will be released June 1, but until then be sure to save the date for your favorite location.
January 8 - 9 at Ridgecrest Conference Center, Ridgecrest, North Carolina
January 15 - 16 at Travis Avenue Baptist Church, Fort Worth, Texas
January 21 - 22, 22 - 23, and 23 at Hermitage Hills Baptist Church, Nashville, Tennessee
