Heart of CEF of Montana
Our heart is to serve and be a tool for the local church! We believe ministry should go through the local church, under the authority of the local church so the local church takes ownership of the ministry.
We Bring a Team!
We bring a highly trained team to work with the church! This team can put on the whole VBS or share the ministry with the church.
3 Day VBS
A 2.5 hour, Monday-Wednesday high octane three day event. It will include dynamic games, many fun songs with motions, exciting time of memorizing scripture, a relatable evangelistic Bible lesson, a moving missionary story and an educational and entertaining review game! VBS ends with a church wide event. It is an energizing RALLY on Wednesday evening to connect folks to the church!
Our expectation is that the church takes ownership of the ministry and participates in putting on the VBS!
We will adjust our role based on…
- The number of volunteers provided
- Level of involvement by volunteers
- Specific roles of volunteers
- Craft time is an option for the church (Church fully responsible)
A CEF Ministry coordinator will be assigned to the church to work out the details of the VBS!
About the Team
The team is made up of teenagers who are part of a ministry we call Christian Youth in Action™.
They are thoroughly trained in early June and travel throughout the state of Montana in the summer months putting on this VBS ministry.
It is an excellent ministry for teens! It can become a time when faith becomes a reality to them!
We would love to share with your teens about this incredible ministry opportunity for them!
Frequently Asked Questions
How much will this cost the church?
CEF of Montana does not charge for our services. If we bring a team in to do a VBS in the Park we ask the church to host our team for the week.
How does CEF fund this ministry?
We believe God provides funding for His ministry. We trust God’s people and churches to give to our ministry as He leads them.
What time frame is needed to train those who are involved with VBS?
We are very flexible with working with the church to make it happen. All training is done for free.
What size team do you bring for the VBS in the Park?
A normal team would usually consist of an adult leader and 2-4 teens.
How does CEF help us prepare for the 3 Day VBS?
A Ministry Coordinator will work with the Pastor or Church coordinator. We have an agreement form and instruction sheet so it is clear what must be done. We also provide promotional material.
Is the church responsible for doing background checks?
CEF of Montana provides the background checks for all those who will have contact with the children or teens.
