The God-inspired vision of BBT originated in 2008 when two individuals felt called to start a workplace focused Bible study. After a period of time, they found it difficult to balance the demands of their very successful careers with the need to prepare for the weekly Bible study. As a result of their experiences, BBT was developed to provide busy people the resources needed – curriculum, group management and communication, support and encouragement – to successfully lead and sustain a workplace focused Bible study.
