Vacation Bible Schools
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.
As visiting evangelists, we will not use your platform as a opportunity to express our personal convictions nor will we contradict any particular teachings or traditions that your church adheres to.
Fun and exciting games
Hilarious antics of Suzy the singing puppet for younger age groups
Live cartooning where Jerry takes a child's name and draws a goofy character from the first letter of their name. The children get to take their drawings home. We have met youth years later who still have theirs on their bedroom wall.

A community VBS also offers the possibility of establishing relationships with parents. It opens avenues of communication, displays servanthood and invites them into your building, giving them a chance to meet local Christians.
Whether it’s a sign at the local grocery store, a sign in front of the church building or television or radio spots, advertisements are noticed and many parents will take advantage of the offer, granting you an occasion to show their children Jesus.
Jerry and Bonnie Wallace of Winchester, Ontario of Wallace Ministries have ministered in 100’s of VBS’s since being married in 1979. It has always been their desire to help those who want to reach their communities but feel they are not equipped, are too small or can’t afford an expensive VBS curriculum and that requires a lot of teachers.
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 Wallace’s can help even the smallest church host a community event that will bless not only the children, but the entire family.
We present a VBS closing event for parents and community with the children singing the songs they have learned and special entertaining program that presents the Gospel message for all with music and art.
On the final night of the closing VBS this young mother came with her children who had attended all week and won the airbrush painting that Jerry painted in the program. She was moved to tears.
