What Does It Mean To Be a VBS Shepherd?

Our biggest volunteer need at VBS is for shepherds to lead the children from station to station!

What does it mean to be a VBS Shepherd?

Shepherds escort a group of 10-15 children through various rotations each night of VBS. They are assigned to the same group of children for the week. Parents check their children into and out of VBS each night with the shepherd.

What talents do I need to be a Shepherd?
  • Count from 1-15 đŸ˜‰
  • Patience
  • Enthusiasm for the opportunity to instill God’s word into little minds and hearts!
Why should I Shepherd?

Why not? We need you AND it’s an easy and fun job! These kiddos will keep you laughing all week long!

What trainings are required as a Shepherd?

The same trainings as all other VBS volunteers! Each volunteer is required to attend one VBS training, be trained in Safe Sanctuaries, and have up-to-date Safe Sanctuaries paperwork turned in by July 5. See all the training times offered here.
