Overview: 
Brethren Volunteer Service (BVS) 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. Through BVS, people give their time and skills to help a world in need. Volunteers work at issues greater than themselves, recognizing that their efforts may not immediately solve deep-rooted problems. Yet everyone can be part of the on-going work to advocate for justice, work for peace, serve human need, and care for creation. BVS seeks persons willing to act on their commitment and values; volunteers bring hope, offer food and shelter, and build relationships. We challenge individuals to offer themselves, their time, and their talents for work that is both demanding and rewarding.
