Cedarville, Ohio—Each Spring Break, students from Cedarville University travel around the country and the world, ministering to others in many ways. This year will be no exception, with 17 teams totaling 182 students, faculty, and staff members spending their March 18-22 Spring Break serving others. Teams plan on traveling to Arizona and the Bahamas to do construction work and assist Vacation Bible School programs, Jamaica for construction work, Korea to conduct a women’s soccer camp, Mexico to lead children’s ministries, and Utah for evangelism. All of these trips are through the Mission Involvement Services office of the University. The community ministries office is offering students the chance to serve on one of five teams: Chicago, serving at inner city schools and doing work projects at Inner City Impact; Philadelphia, assisting kids clubs in the inner city and doing work projects at Child Evangelism Fellowship headquarters; New York City, for inner city ministry and doing work projects at the Children’s Bible Fellowship campsite; Virginia, ministering to kids at Joy Ranch children’s home and doing work projects; and Wisconsin, ministering to mentally disabled adults at Shepherd’s Home in Union Grove. The social work office is also sponsoring trips; teams will be heading to Amarillo, Texas, and Anniston, Ala., to work with Habitat for Humanity. In addition, four University traveling teams will visit churches around the nation, performing music, puppetry, and drama. The Abundant Life Singers will be in Grand Rapids, Mich; the Kingsmen Quartet will be in Atlanta, Ga., Birmingham, Ala., and Chattanooga, Tenn.; the Master’s Puppets will be in Des Moines, Iowa; and the Lifeline Players drama team will be in Cleveland, Ohio.
