WHAT IS LANCASTER BIBLE SCHOOL?
Lancaster Bible School (LBS) is a week-long Vacation Bible School for kids ages 6-13 from Lancaster City, Pennsylvania. Each day of LBS, hundreds of kids are picked up in vans and buses and brought to a park in the city for a fun day of games, crafts, snack and Bible teaching.
The kids are split up into teams, with each team consisting of 2 teachers and 4-8 kids. As a “teacher” at LBS, you’ll be responsible for picking up and dropping off the kids at their homes in the city, and leading them through the daily activities. There are not many situations where you actually “teach”, but rather you love them by pouring your heart and energy into their lives! There are many stories of kids who have never forgotten the teachers who spent a week investing into their lives. God has an overwhelming love for the often abandoned and neglected kids of America, and LBS is a time of partnering with Him in loving the kids of Lancaster city and showing them the Father’s love.
If you wish to join us this year in bringing the Kingdom of Jesus to these kids, please click the “Teacher Application” link at the top of this page.
WHAT ARE OTHER WAYS THAT I CAN HELP?
If you would like to partner with us in this work, which involves around 500 kids and 200 staff each summer, please join us in prayer and consider supporting the work financially. Donations can be made here. Way of Jesus Ministries is a volunteer-run organization, and the kids attend Bible School for free – thanks to the contributions of hundreds of individuals and the generosity of local businesses who donate goods and services.
The goal of Lancaster Bible School is to lift up the name of Jesus Christ, and to expand His Kingdom on earth.
