BETHANY, OK – Southern Nazarene University has two student mission service trips planned over the 2006 spring break.

One group of students will leave for Chicago to work with “Intrsct Ministries”, which is an urban after-school program that is a ministry of the Church of the Nazarene. This is the third year that SNU will send a group of students to Chicago over spring break.

“The students teach in areas of expertise including standard academic tutoring as well as the arts”, said Jason Hubbert, Associate in Spiritual Development at Southern Nazarene University. The students will also work with other ministries in the Chicago area, which include soup kitchens and homeless shelters. Two faculty and staff members will accompany the students making the total number in this trip at ten.

Another group from the university will go to New Orleans to help in the process of gutting and cleaning out flooded homes that have been devastated by Hurricane Katrina. The group will work with the Nazarene Disaster Relief (NDR) and will stay in a Nazarene church in Slidell. Two faculty and staff members will accompany the students to New Orleans making the total number of this group – fourteen.
