Many of you have sent word that you are ready for a sneak peek at VBS 2011 Big Apple Adventure: Where Faith and Life Connect. A great opportunity is just weeks from now during LifeWay's Kids Ministry Conference, October 11 - 13, in Birmingham, Alabama.
You can register here.
In addition to two VBS 2011 related breakout sessions on Tuesday (Live from New York, It's VBS 2011!, and Don't Drop the Ball: The 10 Best Promotion & Follow-up Ideas), you will have an opportunity to spend Monday morning in a small group with Jeff Slaughter where he will teach you the lyrics and motions to all the VBS 2011 songs.
But the best is yet to come! Wednesday evening has been designated as the VBS 2011 Spectacular and will include a great dinner with music provided by Denver & the Mile High Orchestra, Jeff Slaughter, a few surprises, and the premier performance of the Big Apple Adventure musical performed by the Shades Mountain Baptist Church Older Children's Choir. I promise it will be an evening of great fun!
Other highlights of the week (of course when you have VBS what more do you really need?) include Rick Burgess from the nationally syndicated radio show Rick & Bubba, best-selling author and speaker Angela Thomas, and worship with Anthony Evans. If this were not enough there will be 50 workshop options to choose from, speakers Mike Satterfield and Thom Rainer, and entertainers such as Mission Six, Yancy, The Rubyz, iShine, and Tommy Blaze. To learn more go to lifeway.com/kidsministryconference and make plans to join the fun.
I look forward to seeing you in Birmingham for the Kids Ministry Conference and the VBS 2011 Spectacular.
