Participants do not need to be a member of a church to participate in a BBT group. We do ask that our BBT leaders are connected to a church home, so that they may draw upon the pastoral and counseling resources to help group members as needed.
BBT groups are usually not sponsored by a company. Our BBT groups generally grow from an individual’s desire to learn more about applying Biblical principles at work and an interest to study the Word with peers, co-workers and friends. Individual group leaders take the initiative to get things started by inviting others, and distributing the curriculum provided by BBT.
