It is one of the most challenging ministries in the church but foundational to support a child’s life.

We assist churches in teaching kids about God, Jesus, the Bible, family, church, others, community, and self. We also offer help in developing Child Protection Guidelines.

Types of Events and Services:

  • Weekday education director’s network
  • Kid’s & youth ministry workshops
  • Workshops on the protection of kids, youth, and vulnerable people
  • Individual church consultations
  • Provide samples of Children/Preschool Curriculum and Materials

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

  • 47% of parents with kids under the age of 19 say their child
    has been to VBS.
  • 94% of those parents say VBS helped their child better
    understand the Bible.
  • 95% say it influenced their child’s spiritual growth.
    And 95% say it was one of their child’s most meaningful
    church experiences!
    VBS matters!

If your church hosts a 2.5 hour VBS for five days, that’s 12.5 hours of solid discipleship and sharing the gospel! That’s equivalent to nearly 3.5 months of Sunday morning ministry in one week! What an opportunity!
VBS is worth it!

Vacation Bible School is an amazing event designed to reach kids in your church and your community for Christ. And it’s a blast for kids and volunteers! At BCM/D, we’re here to encourage and cheer you on as you plan a VBS that has a lasting impact on those who attend and serve. We also offer resources, training, and personal consultations to support you and your church! So take advantage of it and take the plunge into VBS this summer!

Be sure you’re a member of the BCM/D youth & kids private Facebook group, as resources, suggestions, announcements, and encouragement can all be found there!
