CSM Shoots the Ball for VBS Crossover!


Feb 07, 2020

Get that basketball and start hooping! That is CSM’s call for all churches and ministry groups in this year’s VBS when forty-five (45) trainers attended the annual VBS Master Training workshop last February 1, 2020 at the CSM building in Paranaque. VBS Crossover: Champions for Jesus highlights our special love as a nation for basketball. It is the first-ever basketball-themed VBS that teaches children the skills and traits they would need to follow the Champion of All Champions and the Greatest Coach ever—Jesus Christ.

Special plenary speaker from PCEC Sports Commission Pastor Romy Capuli, who is also the founder and director of Crossover World, gave an inspiring talk on “Raising Spiritual Champions in the 4/14 Window” including his family’s personal story of how Crossover World started. 

What to expect in our VBS Crossover training workshops: 1) enlightening message on reaching the 4-14 Window; 2) experience the exciting VBS worship rally; 3) learn to share the gospel using a basketball; 4) study the different Champions in the Bible at the breakout sessions, and a lot more!
