Students invited to Spring 2022 service and mission trips with Christian Outreach

Christian Outreach, a student religious and spiritual life group of Hendricks Chapel, is offering students four alternative break service and mission trips during Spring 2022.

Three options for spring break include service trips to work with underserved youth in the Bronx or respond to tornado damage in Kentucky, and a mission trip to provide spiritual care to spring breakers on South Padre Island, Texas. The group will also return to Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, in May 2022 to support long-term disaster relief and community development.

All Syracuse University and SUNY-ESF students are welcome to participate. There will be an open interest and information meeting on Jan. 30 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the Noble Room of Hendricks Chapel, which all are invited to.

Applications are now available online and are due Sunday, Feb. 6 at 11:59 p.m. Please note: Applying does not commit you to attending.

Christian Outreach at Syracuse University has participated in disaster relief, crisis response and spiritual service trips for more than 10 years. One of their primary partners is Send Relief, who they will work with in Kentucky and Puerto Rico.

“Send Relief depends on the leadership of community organizers, like local pastors, to identify communities who need assistance and meet those specific needs,” says Baptist Campus Chaplain Devon Bartholomew.
