Past Spring Break Missions Trips
For the 35th consecutive year, Moody served Native Americans in the Broken Bow area of Oklahoma with Native American Bible Ministries and Christian Indian Ministries. Seven students led worship services at a different church each evening and provided music, preaching, Bible lessons for children and shared their testimonies. The team also helped manage a youth camp at Bertram Bobb Bible Camp.
Ten students served at St. Matthew's House, a Christian rescue mission and recovery facility, in Naples, Fla. In addition to helping at the homeless shelter and thrift store, the team ministered to those in addiction recovery. They led Bible studies and times of prayer, worship services, shared testimonies and enjoyed fellowship over meals with those in the program.
Moody has been serving in England over spring break for 10 years. Eight Undergraduate School students worked at Formby Baptist Church, located in Formby, a coastal town about a half hour from Liverpool. The team led church services that featured preaching, music and Bible lessons for children. They also assisted with the women's ministry at the church.
A team of nine Undergraduate School students served in Thailand for the third consecutive year.
