Students begin preparing for spring break mission outreaches
September 21, 2009
Break for Change (BFC), one of Bryan’s Practical Christian Involvement initiatives, offers students short-term missions opportunities to serve pastors and missionaries in communities around the world. The March 6-14, 2010, BFC ministry opportunities were presented to students in chapel on September 7; and application submissions are due today.
Ben Norquist, Assistant Director of Spiritual Formation, explained that “the teams will be active by early October, and during the next five months they will ready themselves to be effective in their outreaches. They will learn about and pray for their national and field partners, gather equipment, and prepare for their unique ministry strategies.” BFC trips are led by student leaders and a faculty or staff mentor; and members must raise their own support, which ranges from $330 - $1680 per student, depending on which of the following ministries they join:
Hope for Opelousas: Opelousas, Louisiana
City of Refuge: San Diego, California
Limbazi Baptist Church Youth Group: Limbazi, Latvia
The Nehemiah Center, Managua, Nicaragua
Community Servants, Nashville, Tennessee
Pastor Jose Barrios, Orizaba, Mexico
