Excel Vacation Bible School

Vision - “To Excel in Christ”

Who We Are
Excel VBS is a the largest interdenominational VBS in India. Approximately 5 lakh children from different language group, cultures and ethnic groups are reached yearly across India, Nepal, Bhutan, Europe, Gulf and the US. Now- a- days the churches across the globe feel the ever increasing need of child evangelism as many former mega churches in the West are shutting down owing to poor membership. Thus Excel VBS is pivotal to Excel Ministries as its mission is of utmost importance in the present ecclesiastical and secular world.
Mission.
Excel VBS considers the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) as applicable to children also and thus committed to reach every child with the love of Christ irrespective of caste, creed and color. The biblical directive, “Train up a child in the way he should go, And even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Prov 22:6), is to be fulfilled to all the children in the world. For the children are tomorrow’s church, society and citizens. Therefore, at Excel VBS we believe that child evangelism is not an option but a command by our Lord that is to be obeyed at any cost.
Function & Funding
Excel VBS functions in association with various churches and mission organizations to reach the unreached children. We accomplish the mission in four phases. In the first phase we conduct Masters Training where we train the trainers; In the second phase, actual VBS directors are trained at various locations. There are more than 2000 directors attend this training. The third phase these directors reach the placeses and train the VBS teachers.The VBS teachers play a crucial role in the conduct and success of the program as they spend the maximum time with children. The final phase is VBS proper where the trained Directors & Teachers conduct VBS at various places and churches. A feedback get-together meeting is also held at the end every VBS season where we evaluate the efficiency of the previous work
Curriculum & Syllabus
The Excel VBS Syllabus has been scientifically and systematically prepared keeping the needs and characteristics of each age group in mind. Presently we have 3 sets of syllabi for 5 age groups of children namely Beginners, Primary, Junior, Intermediate and Seniors. The three sets of syllabi are cyclic in nature. It is used for 3 consecutive years thereby repetition is avoided and the students can learn the Bible completely by the time they reach the age of 18 provided they are regular.
Training Resources
At Excel we believe in quality training. A number of training materials in different media is provided prior to VBS. They include Teachers guide &manual, Directors guide, Training CD’s containing music, action, flash games, power point presentation, games, skits, activities etc. Excel VBS has a strong supporting team that continuously develops new activities and games suiting to the theme. The Director’s guide is the key resources book that is prepared based on the current theme

How to organize an Excel VBS?

1

Organize VBS

Any person having a burden for children’s ministry can organize a VBS irrespective of the number of children. Excel VBS will provide all the necessary support – both men and materials-to make the event a success. We have a wide network of coordinators, supporting churches in every district. You can either attend/send someone to a Directors training in your district (which is normally conducted in Feb-March) or you can contact us and ask for a Director from Excel office. In both cases you need to pay for the materials. Other expenses may include that of advertisement, hall rent, PA System, snacks, food, prizes for students, gift to Director and support to Ministry etc


It is a one- week syllabus having a total of 6 lessons, one lesson per day. For the first 3 groups there are three lessons from the OT and three from the NT. For intermediate and Senior groups, the lessons are more life related yet biblical based. Again each lesson is divided in to two parts – Lesson proper and Missionary story. We believe that the best way of learning is by doing. Therefore each lesson has an activity section that consist of coloring, jumbles, find the way, projects etc. Children not only love to do these activities but also learn the biblical lessons thoroughly


The Harvest is plenty, and the workers are few ().The need is pressing and vast, but the resources are few, in terms of manpower and money. usually the challenges include insufficient trained people, lack of huge fund during the printing time, non-availability of adequate transportation and the like. We are looking forward to more praying and supporting partners for this noble cause.

Upcoming Events

North Indian & Nepal VBS

Till recent, Ministry to children in the north and Nepal has never been received its due attention by the churches and missionary organizations. Paul says in Romans 15:20,21,” yea, making it my aim so to preach the gospel, not where Christ was [already] named, that I might not build upon another man's foundation; but, as it is written, They shall see, to whom no tidings of him came, And they who have not heard shall understand”. Excel VBS felt the need to reach every child in this region with the Gospel and started the initiative to translate syllabus and other materials in to Hindi. We could witness a never-before hunger from the children and youth for the Word of God in both Urban and rural parts of India and Nepal thanks to the awakening of the Spirit of God.

Excel VBS overseas

Excel VBS has been conducting VBS and other children’s programs in US, Canada, Australia, England and Middle East since 2008 successfully. These events not only provided us with good ministry experiences but also helped us financially in fulfilling our mission for the under privileged children throughout Asia. We have tailor made children’s programs for churches and communities abroad considering the special needs of children, parents and Teachers in these countries. This program includes Gospel Magic shows, Puppet shows, Music fest, Dance, Skit, DIY (Do It Yourself) Activities etc.
