Volunteering at VBS is EASY and FUN! Alex, a Senior at Purdue University studying Electrical Engineering and in the Air Force ROTC program, is a VBS volunteer every summer at Heritage Presbyterian Church in Ohio.

Alex says: “I can’t wait for VBS each summer! It’s so rewarding to volunteer and form lasting relationships with the kids! It’s a way for me to give back to the church that gave so much to me as a kid.”

Volunteer for a week, Change a life forever!


Alex’s advice to volunteers: “Just show up and be willing. The curriculum is so easy to teach. You’ll be amazed at how much fun you will have! Rolling River Rampage is a blast!”
