The top Vacation Bible School publishers have been working hard to bring you some of the best VBS curriculum yet! Your church may be the type that “always uses the same publisher,” or maybe you curriculum-hop. Either way, there’s so much to choose from, it’s worth looking into each to see what they have to offer.


Most importantly, it displays the fact that there are a whole lot of churches like yours who believe in the importance of child evangelism. We hope this full list of VBS publishers and 2018 Vacation Bible School themes – including in-depth reviews of each one – will be a great help as you make your decision.
