A Guide to Texting VBS Volunteers and Parents

If you're wondering what texting has to do with Vacation Bible School, then this is the right read. Because it turns out texting has everything to do with VBS. You'll likely see the best response rates when collecting registrations, recruiting volunteers, and sending parent announcements through texting. And even though there's a lot to think about during one of the busiest weeks of kids ministry, we can help brainstorm with you. So if you’re the children's director, this post is for you, and if you're not, then you know who to share this with.
