The ministry of Vacation Bible School is important in the life of a church. VBS affords a church a unique opportunity to reach out to the community. A successful VBS requires both prayer and planning. This manual is designed to help the director plan and execute a successful VBS. The methods and ideas suggested in the pages of this book are developed as “a way,” not “the way.”In a concise and easy-to-read style, the Director’s Manual offers guidelines and practical tips for coordinating VBS. It includes the purpose of VBS and provides information on ways to implement and conduct VBS effectively within any church. The Director’s Manual also includes a description of the age-appropriate VBS curriculum (Preschool, Primary, Junior, Intermediate, and Adult), the character traits of each age group, keywords, concepts from each of the lessons to be incorporated within the VBS sessions, and the “4 & 3” plan for Christian evangelism. This manual is an invaluable resource for the program director, especially for those directing VBS for the first time.
