Brethren Volunteer Service is a full time volunteer program that places volunteers in a one or two year long assignment in the United States and some locations around the world. This ministry of the Church of the Brethren has been a major program in this Christian denomination since 1948. Read more about the BVS program.

Bridgewater Church of the Brethren has a long history of BVS participants. The BVS Committee compiled a 2013 update in the form of a BVS booklet which lists all participants from our congregation. Brethren Volunteering in Service to the World can be viewed  here or downloaded in pdf format here.
