Girl ThinkingHow well does your Vacation Bible School measure up to your expectations in -

  • Reaching your community?
  • Winning boys and girls to Christ?
  • Uncovering visitation prospects?
  • Bringing new families into your church?
  • Keeping your Sunday school alive?
  • Challenging your young people for church service and missions?

The RBM Ministries VBS program is one that offers a missionary - a method and the materials - all in one package.

Here's Our Plan

The Missionary …

We will send you a man or woman who is trained, dedicated and ready to serve. The person will be prepared to serve as,

  • The leader for your school,
  • The instructor for your teachers,
  • The song leader,
  • The story teller for all departments.

This person will bring all the equipment and materials needed for your school.

The Method …

Out of our experience since 1935, RBM Ministries has developed a unique procedure that has been blessed of God. Basically, the method is this:

  • Promotional material and sample lessons are sent to the church several weeks in advance.
  • Our missionary holds a briefing session with the local teachers and helpers.
  • The Bible School is held for five days, usually for two and a half hours each morning. In some cases, afternoon or evening schools may be scheduled. Shorter schools can be arranged as well. The RBM missionary does all of the initial teaching from the platform before the entire assembly. In some large schools, the assembly may be divided into two departments, according to age.
  • The missionary works with captivating, eye catching visual aids - Bible visuals in "3-D" - that are unique with RBM and available nowhere else.
  • Two Bible lessons are given each day - ten Bible teaching periods for the week. The Bible story is central. Everything else in RBM's program is incidental to the Bible teaching. We are careful to keep all materials, as well as methods, Bible-based and Christ-centered.
  • The local teachers, or "helpers", have only to supervise the Bible memory work and the filling in of lesson sheets and/or workbooks.
  • In place of crafts and play-time, this program places major emphasis upon Bible memorization. The assigned passages are correlated with the lesson being studied. Incentives are given to the children to memorize as much Scripture during the week as possible. The minimum is the Verse-for-the-Week and five daily memory verses; the maximum is one hundred verses or more.
  • Songs, contests, Bible drills, quizzes and other features are woven into an action-packed, interest-filled program that brings the kids back for more!
  • All of this is designed to bring the boys and girls to personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior, and to instruct them in the basics of Christian living.
  • A special Parent's Program at the close of the week is an unforgettable experience.

What We Ask of the Church …

We ask for …

  • A teacher-helper for every ten students…
  • A pianist and a secretary…
  • A general assembly room…
  • A free-will offering for RBM Ministries…
  • In some cases, room and board for the missionary worker.

RBM does not set a charge for its VBS. However, we can tell inquiring churches what our approximate costs are. Special scheduling and consideration is given to churches who financially support RBM Ministries regularly.
