NASSAU, Bahamas (BP) — On June 24, more than 160 high school and college students, along with sponsors, sailed to Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas.
The inaugural Centri-Cruise event, sponsored by LifeWay Christian Resources, offered a unique opportunity for students to share their faith at a popular destination.
The weeklong event featured two evenings on a day-cruiser, two beach outings and three ministry days in Nassau.
“Centri-Cruise offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for senior high and college-aged students to engage in international ministry,” said Joe Hicks, LifeWay’s lead coordinator of Centrifuge in the student events department.
“Sometimes we forget about places like the Bahamas for ministry because the first thing we think about is tourism. But a mile or two off the beach you’ll find poverty and Christian communities that can use Christians from the U.S. to partner with them in ministry,” added Hicks.
Some of the outreach activities on the trip included sports evangelism with orphans, conducting Vacation Bible Schools and painting dilapidated school rooms.
