Being “Fully Alive” requires us to “Live in Something Greater.” At BVCC, we strive to do that as a congregation as well as individual members of the Body through Global Outreach.
Having a purpose that is bigger than ourselves drives us back to the heart of God, and the mission of Jesus to “Go and make disciples of all nations.” At BVCC we truly believe that “God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” We believe that God will be most glorified when there are disciples of Jesus from every people, tribe, tongue and nation of the earth.
As a demonstration of our commitment to obey Jesus’ command to make disciples of all peoples, the first 10% of every dollar given to BVCC is designated to Global Outreach.
A dedicated group of BVCC volunteers are living in something greater by serving our church on the GO (Global Outreach) Team. This group meets regularly to pray and strategize the best ways possible to help fulfill the heart of God for all peoples of the earth.
For over 15 years, BVCC has partnered with Amor Ministry in an annual house-building trip to Mexico. Each year we go desiring to serve God and love people by building houses for families in need, and each year it seems those who are affected the most are us.
If you are looking to experience authentic community, be caught up by a purpose bigger than you, and have fun doing it, then come and join us! To get involved, please contact Don Pilkington.
We coordinate a Child Sponsorship ministry in Brazil through MAD Ministries.
BVCC currently has seven (7) international partners that we support on a monthly basis. These include ministries of community development to the poor and marginalized in Southeast Asia; creative evangelism and church planting in former East Germany; student ministry among indigenous (non-Spanish speaking) people of Mexico; evangelism and church planting in North Africa, Western Europe (basketball camps), and the Middle East (soccer camps) and disciple making on an East Coast University campus.
