Wow! I know it’s Friday and we’ve decided to mix things up on you a bit here. Keith is really busy trying to get some fabulous products ready for VBS 2013 and move offices. In an effort to
chill him out (I mean help him out) a little, I am doing a Friday edition of VBS Geek of the Week.
This week’s Geek of the Week was discovered at our Nashville Previews in January. Angelia Stewart works as a 3rd and 4th grade Team Member for the Tennessee River Baptist Association. So without further adieu, lets find out what makes Angelia a VBS Geek of the Week.
What roles have you filled involving VBS?
I have served as a Director of VBS from Ocean Osydessy until last year when my family moved to a new church. I am now serving as the Music Leader in our current church.
What do you think is the most encouraging aspect of VBS?
The most encouraging thing about doing VBS year after year is seeing the faces of boys & girls as they discover Who Christ is & that He loves them more than anything . . . no matter what their circumstances. The joy on their faces when they accept Christ as their Savior and experience the freedom that only He can give makes all the effort worth it!
What is your favorite VBS theme to date?
It is hard to pick one theme, but Saddle Ridge Ranch & Amazon Outfitters were probably my favorites.
What is your Geekiest VBS Moment?
For Rickshaw Rally, my husband made a rickshaw that we used to promote VBS. During VBS & after VBS I put it out in front of my house as landscaping. He had worked too hard to just toss it. Our neighbors would all laugh as they came to visit & say, “You might be a VBS junkie if you keep your decor as landscaping. And YOU MIGHT BE A VBS GEEK IF … every item you see you think about how it can be used with the VBS theme.”
