The destinations for the 2014 Spring Break Campaigns have been selected.
Four student-led campaigns will spend Spring Break in St. Paul, Minn., Seattle, Wash., Chicago, Ill. and Fairfax, Va.
Mary Beth Cuevas, SBC coordinator and associate director for ACU Leadership Camps, said these locations were chosen based on past success.
“We looked back in past years to see which ones we had the most contact with, the ones that we went to the most, knowing people there,” she said. “That’s how we made those connections.”
Last year, the university sent students to 10 cities across the United States.
Cuevas said they also tried to avoid picking locations other groups or Abilene churches might be going to.
“We don’t need to double-dip like that,” she said.
Cuevas said the office is behind on coordinating campaigns because they didn’t get started until later in the semester. However, she said they are not concerned about this affecting applications.
“We do still need people to apply,” she said. “We need leadership teams, we need leaders for the campaigns themselves and we need students.”
Applications for students and the SBC leadership team are available online. Cuevas said the leadership teams needs a financial organizer, marketing organizer, an assistant coordinator and a travel organizer. She said they also want two people to lead each campaign. These people can also be members of the leadership team.
“The kind of people we want for the leadership campaigns are people who have a heart for service, a heart for seeing what people need, excitement and ready to grow in their faith,” she said.
Cuevas said they are hoping to have 20 students per group.
Mollie Spaulding, administrative assistant for the Center for Christian Service and Leadership, said the applications are open-ended because they want to give as many people as possible the chance to apply.
Students and leaders can apply by going to the Center for Christian Service and Leadership website and clicking “Ministry and Service” followed by “Spring Break.”
