What is a Local “Transit Trip”
South Africa, India, Rogersville,……Nashville??  You can now NOT ONLY sign up to be a part of a mission experience across the world or the state but in our own backyard.   We have been working with our partners and together we are excited about a 2014 calendar of opportunities for you to be able to sign up for.  This is a great way to plug into needs in our community, get to know our partners, and to get to know others in the BBC family while serving together to reach our own community for Christ.

Some of the experiences below will have some training before and some will solely meet on the day of the event.   Some of the dates and opportunities may require supplies or cost while others will not, however below represent many of our partners and different ways to use your gifts to be a part of their stories.   LET’S GO!
