Arkansas Baptist News
FAYETTEVILLE – Hundreds of thousands of motorcycle riders converged on northwest Arkansas Sept. 23-26 to take part in Bikes, Blues and BBQ (BBB), one of the largest motorcycle rallies in the country. Southern Baptists from across Arkansas and beyond used the event as an opportunity to share the gospel of Christ.
Now in its 16th year, BBB is held each fall. The rally bills itself as “the largest motorcycle rally in the United States benefitting local charities.” It was estimated that 2014’s rally saw more than 400,000 visitors to Fayetteville and surrounding communities.
Due to BBB, for four days each year, Fayetteville becomes Arkansas’ largest city, and arguably, its largest mission field. As in years past, Arkansas Baptists partnered with Baptists from multiple other states in ministering to the mass of bikers and onlookers.
