Where did summer go? It seems like kids just got out of school and now they're ready to start back. Whew! What a whirlwind! With the passing of summer comes the official end of VBS season for 2017. Yes, we may see VBS used for a few fall retreats, Labor Day lock-ins, or mission trips, but the majority of Vacation Bible Schools are completed for this year. Before you pack away the last decoration, and before you kick off your fall programming, there's one more IMPORTANT step—reporting and evaluation.
Would you please take a moment to share your VBS experience with us? We want to hear what worked well and what didn't. We want to celebrate salvations and other decisions with you! We want to know what kind of schedule you chose so that we can tailor VBS to your needs. There are TWO ways you can help us.
1. Send in an Evaluation
Filling out and returning an evaluation helps us know what your needs are and how we can meet them better. We're always looking for ways to improve VBS and your insight is invaluable for both innovation and excellence! Click this link to print the Director_Evaluation (also located on the Administrative Guide CD-ROM). Please mail to:

2. Submit a VBS Report
Reporting is the way you get to share with others what God did in your church through VBS. When you share things like attendance totals, number of decisions, and prospects identified with us, we are able to get a big picture look at what God is doing across the country and around the world through VBS. We'll share the grand totals with you in next year's Administrative Guide and you can celebrate being a part of God's work and His plan.
A report was recently mailed to your church to the attention of the VBS Director. Please double check to make sure that form was completed and submitted. If you did not receive or need a form, or if you need another one please click this link to print the VBS_2017_Report (also located on the Administrative Guide CD-ROM). Instructions for submitting the report are located on the top of the report form. Please note, if you have already completed and submitted a form, there is no need resubmit.
Thank you for sharing your VBS success story with us! We look forward to receiving your report soon!
