African Adventure VBS 2019

Ready for Adventure? Grab your binoculars and your travel pack and climb into the jeep, because it is time for an epic African Adventure Vacation Bible School at Tomah Baptist Church!

This epic African adventure engages the whole herd. At this year’s VBS, kids explore God’s goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life.

Learn about three West African nations (Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria) from people who grew up there.  We will highlight the need for missions in those countries as well as learn some things about their culture, history, and other fascinating facts.  Saturday’s picnic will include some food from those countries.

Joshua Engel was raised in a Christian home and was saved at an early age during a tent meeting with Evangelist Jack Parchman. He was called to preach as a teenager. After Joshua surrendered to the Will of God, his pastor took him under his wing to train and expose him to every aspect of the ministry he could.

Joshua was able to see ministry from the aspects of preaching, counseling, deacons meetings, music, children’s ministry, and soul winning.

In his senior year of High School, he felt the Lord working on his heart to enter into evangelism.  Joshua went off to Bible College at West Coast Baptist College in Lancaster, CA, which was founded by Pastor Paul Chappell, where he graduated with a major in Bible, concentration in Evangelism. During the summers between school years he was able to travel as an evangelist with Neighborhood Bible Time; intern at First Baptist Church in LaSalle, IL; and intern with Evangelist Dwight Smith. During the summer of 2015, Joshua met his wife, Krysta, and they were married February 22, 2016.

The Engel’s entered into full-time evangelism in the middle of March. God has opened many doors for them to travel with seasoned evangelists along with preaching their own meetings. Joshua travels preaching the Word of God in revivals, camps, and many other venues. He desires to see people trust Christ as their Savior and for the church to experience true genuine revival and get on fire for God.
