Youth entering 7th – 12th Grade can volunteer as crew leaders or assistant crew leaders during VBS. As a crew leader, you’ll be working with 1 or 2 other teens to lead a group of 6-8 children through each day at VBS. Middle and High Schoolers can volunteer as crew leaders with 4-6 year olds at the Early Childhood VBS program or with 1-6th graders at the Elementary VBS program
The Crew Leader is an important part of each Crew. Crew Leaders don’t have to prepare anything; they just come each day, guide their Crew members through activities, help facilitate discussions, and generally join in the VBS fun. Crew leaders must attend a teen volunteer training meeting in early July as well as the VBS Kick-off meeting the Wednesday evening before VBS week. Crew leader arrive early each day of VBS to attend crew leader meeting before welcoming the kids to their crew.
Anyone who loves God and loves children can be a Crew Leader!
A Crew Leader is...
• a friend and a helper,
• responsible for drawing kids into discussions as much as possible,
• someone who asks questions
• someone who encourages kids
• someone who helps and encourages Station Leaders.
There lots of ways that college age students and adults can be involved with VBS, both before and during VBS week. We need lots of help with prep before VBS as well as the week of VBS. We can use your help – whether you have a lot of time to give or just a little – go ahead and register as a volunteer and check out all the opportunities there are to be involved!
Do you have an artistic flare? Come join us the month before VBS as we paint, build, and create props, sets, and decoration to transform our church into another world for VBS!
All VBS volunteers must attend the VBS Kick-off meeting on July 24, the Wednesday evening before VBS. We also need everyone to help with set-up Sunday July 28 and break-down/clean-up Friday August 2 after our closing program. If you are taking a station leader roll or other leadership roll, we’ll contact you before the program to make sure you have everything you need!
