A Minister of Education
"Their teaching materials are excellent and God's Word is taught throughout the program."
"The Wallaces' presentation is exciting, entertaining,
fast-paced with an excellant variety - singing, puppets, air brush cartooning,
illustrated Bible stories, and a power gospel
Jerry and Bonnie's program is a fast paced contemporary style geared to modern visual children 4-12 years old.
A Typical 2 hour VBS Schedule
9:30 - 10:45 Wallaces
10:45 - 11:15 Host Church
11:15 - 11:45 Wallaces
The Wallaces do not handle crafts or outside games. But will send craft and game ideas.
Every summer churches have the opportunity to participate in VBS! It’s such a blessing to see how VBS makes a difference in the lives of children and their parents. Kids from church bring their unchurched friends to VBS, and the kids bring their parents. Together they’ll hear the life-changing message of God’s love and grace.
For some, it’s the first time they’ve heard how much Jesus loves them and wants them to be a part of God’s family. Teaching kids about Jesus’ message of salvation is why VBS programs were created.
The Wallaces have seen a VBS to be one of the most effective and popular community outreaches of the year
Jerry and Bonnie offer an affordable and exciting alternative to the traditional VBS program. With a minimum of volunteers needed and no expensive kit to buy, the Wallaces can help even the smallest church host a community event that will bless not only the children, but the entire family.
1 1/2 hour evening VBS Schedule
6:30 - 7:15 Wallaces
7:15 - 7:45 Host Church
7:45 - 8:00 Wallaces
The Wallaces are flexible and are willing to work with in your schedule.
Important Note: Our one goal is to see children come to know who Jesus Christ is and to believe in Him. We are not just entertainers nor baby sitters, yet we will use our talents with the Holy Spirit's power to make the truths of God's Word come alive to the children.
The Wallaces can adapt their program to different styles
Below is an example (45 min. to 1 hour up to 2 hours) may include depending on time frame.
~ upbeat interactive worship song time with colorful projected choruses and lots of actions.
~live cartooning where Jerry takes a child's name and draws a goofy character from the first letter of their name.
~a Bible verse is taught with large air brushed visuals
~a audience participation game
~ a animal teaching where we explore God's creation.
~slight of hand object lessons.
~either a large black light chalk drawing or an air brush spray painting.
~a child friendly gospel message.
At the conclusion of the program each child is invited to respond to the claims of Jesus Christ and receive forgiveness of their sins and the gift of eternal life. A gentle child friendly invitation is given without emotional pleas or fear tactics.
We present a closing program for parents with the children singing the songs they have learned and a very special entertaining program that presents the Gospel message with a dramatic painting.

We are evangelist and believe firmly that children can make a decision to follow Christ. Matthew 18.6 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. This verse states clearly that children
can “believe” in Jesus. In every service we will give an invitation, it will be brief
and without emotional pleas, but child friendly. We do not use scare tactics or
warnings about hell.
At the invitation time Pastor Jerry will say “If you are here today and would like
to pray about asking Jesus to come into your life, you can bow your head and
repeat after me”. Pastor Jerry will lead them in a short conversation style prayer.
