VBC is for ALL children who will have completed PreK-4th grade during the 2022-2023 school year. We follow the MISD guidelines, so to be in the PreK class your child would have needed to turn 4 by September 1st, 2022. We also offer WEE VBC for volunteers’ children who are 1 year of age through children who turned 4 years old after September 1, 2022.
All 6th graders through ADULTS (for the ’22-23 school year), WE NEED YOU to be READY, SET, and MOVE with us as we guide the children to FOLLOW JESUS HERE, THERE, and EVERYWHERE! We cannot put on VBC without the help of all our amazing volunteers like YOU!

Throughout the week, there will be amazing opportunities for worship, prayer, fun activities, great food, and most importantly of all, experiencing the presence of Jesus together as we serve others. Every night, after a hard day’s work & a much needed shower at their teams assigned shower houses, you will get to hear from gifted and talented worship leaders, speakers, and spend time bonding with your teammates.
Registration is now open and will close on June 18th.
