VBS 2009 Church Summary Report Form
Dear VBS Director:
This VBS 2009 report form gives you options for making your VBS report.
Make copies to report on separate forms your (1) church VBS, (2) mission
VBS, and (3) Backyard Bible Clubs. You may report online at
(requiring no mailing except to your state office to request Standard
VBS recognition), by mail to: VBS Report Desk (MSN 177), LifeWay Christian Resources, One LifeWay Plaza, Nashville, TN 37234, or by FAX to: LifeWay
Christian Resources, 615-251-3937. Mail copies to your ASSOCIATION and STATE CONVENTION.
(NOTE: In May or June, a personalized form will be
mailed to you with your congregation’s information preprinted on the form.)
Complete the report and enter your VBS information into the
Southern Baptist Directory Services (SBDS)
via the Web site
. To access the VBS part of the site, you will need to use your congregation’s VBS User Name and Password. The church user name
and password will not change from year to year. SBDS requires either Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.0 or greater (recommended) or Netscape Navi-
gator version 4.0 or greater. Cookies must be enabled and pop-up windows allowed. Adobe Acrobat Reader is required for some reports and can be
downloaded for FREE at
To enter your VBS data into SBDS:
(1) Go to the Web site; (2) Enter your congregation’s VBS User Name and Password and click “Log On”; and (3) Click
“Enter VBS Data.” (A) “Enter Congregational Information” to update your congregation’s name and address information. (Make changes
after check-
ing with your ACP contact person or pastor!); (B) “Enter 2009 VBS Survey” to enter 2009 VBS data. Be sure to enter data into the correct portion of the form
and click
after you have entered the data; and (C) “Enter VBS Director Information” to update VBS Director information. Your congregation’s VBS
User Name and Password are confidential, should be protected, and should not be given out indiscriminately.
If you choose not to use SBDS, simply complete your VBS report form(s), make copies, keep one for your records, and mail the forms to
your ASSOCIATION, STATE CONVENTION, and LifeWay Christian Resources.
See address and FAX information at the top of this page.
NOTE: Requests for Standard VBS recognition should be mailed to your state convention, even if reporting VBS information online.
Do not report a VBS conducted by an established mission that is sponsored by your church. An established mission has its own SBC ID and will
receive a VBS report form with its preprinted information. Each established mission should report its VBS, mission VBS, or Bible Club directly.
