Summer is almost here, that means the annual Vacation Bible School across the SBC.
Here’s what Baptist Press (reporting the ACP) said about VBS in 2006.
Vacation Bible School continues to have the greatest evangelistic impact in the Southern Baptist Convention, with 26 percent of baptisms in SBC churches a direct result of VBS.
A more recent article has roughly the same numbers.
25 percent of baptisms reported by the SBC come from VBS. Every one person trained in VBS results in 1.1 salvation decisions.
I’d like to hear what everyone thinks of those kind of figures. Do they hold true in your church? If this is such an excellent tool why are we not doing more kids Bible school?
And while we’re talking. I’m curious about the curriculum people are using, your typical schedule, and how much your church invests in the event.
Dave’s out of town, so I can’t promise moderation : )
