Many student ministry service projects take place during the spring semester & over summer break each year to serve in another community and experience another culture.

Ministries throughout Ensenada include sports, construction, VBS and medical ministries with ample opportunity for staff involvement in any area. Spring Break in the City ministers in inner-cities, serving each city’s most disadvantaged populations in youth centers and homeless shelters.
