About Us

Brethren Volunteer Service seeks people willing to act on their commitment, values, and faith. We challenge individuals to offer themselves, their time, and their talents to work that can be difficult and demanding, yet rewarding and joyful.

Since 1948, Brethren Volunteer Service has been about people sharing God’s love through acts of service. As a Christian-based volunteer program sponsored by the Church of the Brethren, BVS builds on the church’s strong commitment to service.

Volunteers serve full-time (forty hours per week) for a year or more at projects that commit to one or more of the following goals of BVS: working for peace; advocating justice; serving basic human needs; maintaining the integrity of creation.
