Episode 5: Beach Reach Missions Experience


Episode 5: Beach Reach – A Unique Spring Break Missions Experience

What do spring break party-goers, van rides, and free pancakes have in common? They are all part of Beach Reach – a missions opportunity for college students to engage their peers with the gospel through service and evangelism.

Notable Points

  • Beach Reach provides a hands-on “evangelism lab” where students share the gospel with other collegians
  • Combining verbal evangelism with relational service is a key to engaging college students with the gospel
  • The biggest success of Beach Reach is that it translates beyond a missions experience back to campus
  • Advice for College Ministers: Don’t isolate yourself, and remember that we live in a post-Christian world.
