Global Missions - Our ends of the earth....
BVBC is a part of the Southern Baptist Convention, and as such supports the global missions efforts and missional strategy of the International Mission Board (IMB) and the Baptist Global Response (BGR)
We support our IMB through long-term people group and institutional partnerships and the disaster relief efforts of the BGR. We also promote and collect the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering each December which directly funds missions efforts of IMB missionaries.
We are currently involved in working with the IMB and BGR in the following areas:
- Food for His Glory project, Ramtekdi Slum, Pune, India (See Update Below)
- Sparsh India Human Trafficking Response & Recovery Project, Pune, India
We have also begun a strategic partnership with Samaritan’s Purse in which we have a long history of involvement through Operation Christmas Child. We have participated in a vision trip (click for photos) to Iraq with Samaritan’s Purse leadership to explore how our church could minister to refugees in the region, as well as potentially assisting with other global disaster relief projects.
We also promote International Commission trips around the globe. For more information, contact International Commission directly at www.icworld.org
The 2018 VBS was a huge success! We had over 350 children from the Ramtekdi Slum attend and hear the Gospel! We now have young men and women who are following Christ, as well as some of their family members! Praise be to God. We had 9 BVBC members teach Vacation Bible school as well as visit the children's homes and meet with their parents. We were able to pray over some families. We also visited the AIDS Care Home and spent time with the orphans and prostitutes’ children at Pastor’s house. We once again were given miracles as the Father provided more than enough supplies when our numbers grew larger than anticipated! “The Lord has done great things for us! We are filled with joy!”
