Over the last few days we've fielded phone calls and emails regarding our Vacation Bible School Institute (VBSI) core training which is scheduled to take place this Saturday, March 14th 2020.

With recent comments from Ohio health & government officials, we have decided to postpone this VBSI event until further notice.

We will inform you of the future date or possibility of an online VBSI training event instead. 

As more information about future trainings becomes avalible we will share as soon as possible. 

Plan on bringing your team and get the training needed to make 2020 the best VBS for your community!

What is VBSI?

We will start the day off with a Worship Rally, move into core training where leaders will be trained in their specific area. All that learning will make you hungry and we have that covered too, lunch is provided! The afternoon is filled with electives where you can pick topics that interest you such as recruiting volunteers, engaging community, and continuing the connection after VBS. We will wrap up the day with a final session celebrating all we have learned and give away some great prizes. This is an event you and your team will not want to miss!
