Beltway College Park would love for you to join us on our Awaken Spring Break Trip! 

Each day looks something like this: Every morning we will gather for a time of communal worship and teaching. In the afternoons we will we doing service projects throughout the community of Abilene. Each evening we will have an outreach at a neighborhood or apartment complex where we will meet people, play games, and share the love of Jesus. Every student will get to serve a specific role in the outreach by either being on a dance team, drama team, activity team, or servanthood team.

Every year students have been transformed on this trip as they encounter the presence of God, experience authentic and encouraging community, and see the love and power of God change lives! If you want to join us here are a few details:

  1. Cost: $210 (covers all food, lodging, and transportation during the week)
  2. Training Days: February 1st and 22nd from 9:00am - 4:00pm at Beltway Park Baptist Church
