Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School (VBS) continues to be one of the most effective ways for a church to connect with children and their families. A church of fewer than 100 typically will reach four to seven children for Christ by conducting one week of Vacation Bible School. Additionally, they will discover between eight and 14 unreached people.

California Southern Baptist Convention provides English and Spanish training clinics each year in February and March to help churches prepare for a great VBS experience.
