“I really don’t think we should have a 5th & 6th grade class,” Julia’s new co-Director said. “I’ve been talking with our 5th & 6th graders and they’re saying they don’t want to come to VBS as students—they want to be helpers.”
Sound familiar? Sadly, this is an increasingly common scenario. But Julia (not her real name), who had a different perspective, called our office for her Coach’s advice. After that conversation, she went back to her co-Director and lovingly convinced her that they should go ahead and have the class.
