A-aware
  • Be aware of those around us that do not have a personal relationship with Christ.
  • View those in our churches and community who are hurting, lost, sad, and in need of Christ through His perspective and become aware of their lost souls.
G-give
  • Offer VBS as a reason to intentionally invite lost people to your church
  • Give people a bridge to the spiritual orphans in your community.
  • Give people an opportunity to clearly present the gospel
  • Give people an opportunity to respond to Christ in a public way.
E-enable
  • Enable your church to work together towards the Great Commission.
  • Enable VBS directors, leaders, parents, and staff to share the love of Christ with kids and their families.
N-navigate
  • Being evangelistic navigates an entry point for unchurched people.
  • Attract people to your church with programs like VBS for their kids. Then you can help them navigate the gospel and how it connects to their lives.
  • Remember the gospel makes VBS relevant. Without the gospel, it is just fun and games.
C-connect
  • Connect with families. The initial follow-up contact should be the discovery of the family network.
  • Pass information discovered on to the follow-up team and to age group classes.
  • Invite each member of the family to the appropriate Bible study class and other ministry opportunities.
  • Plan to have multiple contacts with the family over the following months.
Y-yield
  • Yield and surrender your heart to God's plan
  • Use bold, creative strategies to teach people about Christ.
D3
  • Display-display the gospel. Be people who are evangelistic.
  • Demonstrate-demonstrate a life that follows Christ. Do things that bring Him glory.
  • Declare-declare the gospel. Tell people about Christ.
There are an estimated 313 million people living in the US. 98 million of those have accepted Jesus as their Savior. 43% of those accepted Jesus before reaching the age of 13. According to George Barna, evangelism is most effective among kids. Where is your heart?

Thank you so much for being willing to help our preschoolers and children - Discover, Decide and Defend who Jesus is!!! 
Thank you so much for the time you gave during VBS last year.  We have recently returned from the our secret mission at the Agendy 3D headquarters in Ridgecrest and look forward to you being part of the Agency 3D team.  This is going to be an exciting mission as we help our students Discover who Jesus Is, Decide to Follow Him, and Defend why we believe in Him.    

Since you have been a lead teacher in the past, you know how important it is to the preschoolers and children when they have teachers who care about them, love them, and care about their hearts. 

We look forward to having you on board during this exciting week.  In preparation for this week, we will have having a Leaders meeting on Sunday, February 16, 2014.  We look forward to seeing you this week.

It was a great ride!!!!

It was a great ride on the colossal coaster world.  We had almost 500 Children come, and learn how to:
Admit, Believe, and Confess.
They learned songs and about Paul as he faced his fears.
They also learned how to face their fears.  It was a wonderful ride, and we thank all of the wonderful volunteers who made this VBS possible.

We look forward to next year, as we Discover, Decide and Defend with Agency D3.

The dates for the 2014 VBS are June 23-27, 2014 at Lawndale Baptist Church, Greensboro, NC
