Every year, tens of thousands of college students descend upon the beaches at South Padre Island during Spring Break. Beach Reach began in 1980 with 20 students who had a vision to reach their peers and serve the City of South Padre during Spring Break. It has progressively developed into the extensive ministry that it is today. Now, during Beach Reach, hundreds of Christian college students join together to verbally share the gospel of Jesus with those they encounter as they seek to meet their physical needs for food and transportation. This is a strategic moment to proclaim the gospel in the midst of brokenness.
The cost of sending a student to Beach Reach this year is around $1,200 (the majority of the expense is travel – airfare and van rentals and fuel).
This is a life-changing trip for students who participate. It has been a pivotal moment in the lives of students and has been a catalyst God has used to seal their desire to serve Him with their life in ministry at home as well as abroad!
