With churches and individuals from over 60 countries participating in the WOW VBS Virtual Bible School over the last few days, the organizers have announced an on-demand streaming service beginning on July 6.
The Vacation Bible School alternative features children's ministry performers from various countries with special appearances and performances by Chonda Pierce, Mary Rice Hopkins, Miss Pattycake, and Gary Chapman. Co-organizer and family entertainer, Scott Humston, says the streaming service will also be offered for free.
"We have been blown away with the response to WOW VBS," says Humston. "Starting July 6, anyone can stream the event on-demand absolutely free. This has truly become a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enjoy so many top children's entertainers and presenters in one event."
Children's ministry musical artists, illusionists, comedians, puppeteers, and leaders from the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and the United States are part of the WOW VBS presentation. Co-creator and director of Faith Kidz, Steve Pennington, says this event has helped these various performers, who typically rely on live events for their livelihoods, to do something positive during this time of worldwide shutdowns.
"These children's ministry performers have lent their time and talent to make these shows fun, engaging, and highly entertaining," says Pennington. "Though the events are completely free to everyone, we are accepting donations that will help cover the production costs as well as pay these incredible ministry leaders."
WOW VBS continues this week, and on-demand streaming will begin July 6.
