It’s Spring Break this week at CCU and while some of our students are hitting the beach, a few are headed overseas to make an impact. There are two service learning trips in Dundrum, Northern Ireland and Birmingham, England.
Dr. Rick Cherok, Professor of Church History, is leading the team in Northern Ireland. They are staying in the Murlough House and working with young people in the community of Downpatrick. The team will also minister at the Kairos Centre, a place where young people meet, and assist the established ministries there.
Dean of Students Kris Merrill is leading the team in England. They are staying at The Mill Retreat Centre in Shipston-on-Stour. This week they’ll be serving at the youth workers training conference hosted by Reign Ministries, helping with the cooking and clean up each day of the conference. The team will not only sit in on the conference, they’ll also get the opportunity to see firsthand how they serve.
Please keep these groups in your prayers as they travel, learn, and love the people they meet.
