Welcome to the VBS Resource Page for KBC Churches!

Vacation Bible School continues to be a vital tool for the church in evangelism, discipleship, missions, and fellowship. This webpage is dedicated to being an ongoing resource for all KBC churches in equipping leaders and volunteers to effectively carry out the ministry of VBS. No matter the method, length, curriculum, or location, we believe your VBS will be one of the most effective strategies for reaching your communities with the gospel. 

Help your team influence a generation

Bring your entire team to a VBS Clinic near you and empower them to lead children to know Jesus. You and your helpers will learn how to integrate the gospel into every aspect of VBS — from teaching to missions, from recreations and snacks to decorations. Help your team learn how they can be a part of someone’s salvation story.
