(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) — For the fifth year in a row, Christian singer-songwriter and children’s worship expert Yancy has partnered with Standard Publishing to write and produce all-new original music for their popular Vacation Bible School curriculum. 2016’s Deep Sea Discovery VBS program, which will also include contributions from missionary/author Beth Guckenberger of Back2Back Ministries, is packed with fun and adventure, teaching kids that “God KNOWS me, HEARS me, STRENGTHENS me, LOVES me and SENDS me.”

“This is the fifth year that Standard Publishing has asked me to create original music and videos for their VBS program,” says Yancy. “I’m honored to continue this partnership, and I love creating resources for the local church that affect the lives of kids around the world. I am passionate about having great songs and media to reach this generation. I believe in the power of music and know that it will reinforce the lessons, and relationships that kids will experience at VBS.”

Taking its theme from Genesis 28:15, Deep Sea Discovery VBS focuses on one important truth for kids: God is with me and will watch over me wherever I go! Each day, kids dive into God’s presence by delving deep into His Word to see how He has been with his people every step of the way. They will get to know God is always with them, explore God’s presence in their lives, and serve God by serving others. Hands-on service projects and sea science will help kids experience a VBS adventure like no other, and they’ll leave each day ready to set sail to serve others and tell God’s story.

Deep Sea Discovery VBS products consist of a comprehensive kit and over 40 other resources. The kit is packed with everything needed to plan and lead a VBS or family ministry event. It includes the Director’s Guide, Planning Disc Set, Music Disc Set, all leader’s guides and cards, student books, Age-level Resources Disc Set, Decorating Resource Pack, and four poster packs.

“Another important element in making our VBS program so engaging, and its messages so impactful, is the quality of our freely reproducible music,” said Laura Hannah, Vice President of Marketing at Standard Publishing. “This can make the songs that are sung available to every child to take home. We are thrilled to partner again with kid-favorite worship leader, Yancy.”

Deep Sea Discovery VBS also offers a unique special needs sensory station, named Breakaway Bay, where kids with special sensory needs can experience an oasis of calm in the busy world of VBS, while still learning the same lessons and participating in the activities all the other kids are doing. Kids can come and go as needed to the site with their designated partners, called Diving Buddies.

Virtual Bus Trip

May 13th, 2015

Hey #Kidmin friends,

I want to tell you about something very cool that is coming up May 27 & 28, 2015. It’s the Kidzmatter Virtual Bus Trip. It’s an awesome way for you to go check out 10 different churches, seeing and hearing how they do ministry without ever leaving your home or office.

If you sign up for the event using this link you’ll get a special bonus. I’ll give you 5 of my “Roots for the Journey” CD’s. (Scripture music that’s perfect as a lullaby for the young and a piece of encouragement for the spirit of old.) Many churches use these as baby dedication gifts and volunteer appreciation gifts. Download the “Roots for the Journey” family devotional app too. You can use the five CD’s as gifts for your church.

I hope you can join my friends for this awesome virtual church tour.
