Tri-Rivers Baptist Area is seeking Churches that would be able to provide Transportation to Area and Associational Gatherings within the Tri-Rivers Baptist Area?  This would allow those who cannot drive (for whatever reason) to be able to attend these wonderful Gatherings.  When an Area or Association Gathering is Scheduled you will be contacted to confirm the availability of your transportation and how many you can transport so we can set up a "Reserve a Ride" registration link.  If your Church might be able to provide Transportation to these Gathering, would you please complete the Survey below.  If you would like to Reserve a Ride in a future Gathering within the Tri-Rivers Baptist Area, please complete the Reserve a Ride Section.
