Join us, along with churches across greater Austin, in reaching your neighborhood with the gospel of Christ by hosting a Back Yard Bible Club!
BYBCs are happening July 9-12, 2018!
- 10:00-11:15 am
- 5:45-7:00 pm
- 7:30-8:45 pm
Teams of students spend the whole week reaching the same groups of children in hundreds of neighborhoods, sharing the gospel through fun games and skits. Clubs are designed to be fun and engaging for elementary and preschool students.
You can make a difference by hosting a Back Yard Bible Club or driving a team of students to the clubs.
What does a Host do?
Attend a training session and receive your yard sign and invitations | Pray daily for those who will come to your club | Put your provided yard sign up | Use the invitations provided to invite neighborhood children | Provide a small snack daily for the children
A team of 4-5 trained high school students, accompanied by an adult driver/chaperone who will lead the club at your location | All the materials needed for the teens to present a skit, games, Bible story, and gospel | Bibles and follow-up material for children who make a decision to follow Christ
As a host, you’ll develop a fresh mindset and see your neighborhood as a mission field. You’ll enjoy seeing kids hear about Christ and watching teens love them with Christ’s love. Each day, you will have the opportunity to get to know your neighbors better. It’s quite possible that you’ll never see your yard the same way again.

What does a Driver do?
During club week, Monday through Thursday, drive students to their clubs and then back | Register to drive (see below) | Attend one training session | Pray daily for the teens and encourage and pray with them | Assist the host in welcoming the children and families that come to their club
As a driver, you will form great connections with a group of teenagers. You will have a front row seat to watch these students put their faith in action, it will give you hope for the next generation!
