Spring Breakthrough

So this week I’m helping out John Pavlovitz, Amie Berryhill and the rest of the Student Ministry Team with Spring Breakthrough 2010.

What is it?

Pretty incredible, actually.

It’s 100 students from Charlotte, Fort Mill, and Lake Wylie spending their spring break in a most unconventional manner: serving people in need.

Instead of a trip to Myrtle Beach, the students are tutoring at-risk children, serving lunch to men in early stages of drug recovery, painting the warehouse of one of the church’s ministry partners, prayer walking the streets of uptown Charlotte, among others.

They’re bunking together at Camp Thunderbird on Lake Wylie and then jumping into vans early each morning to drive to the various ministry sites.

That’s where I come in. Van driver.

It’s a student ministry of which the people of Good Shepherd can be justifiably proud.
