BeachReach is a mission trip experience where servant evangelism takes the form of free van rides and pancakes. Thousands visit Panama City during spring break and many are hurting and searching for meaning. College students provide simple acts of service that open the door to life-changing conversations about the hope and love of Jesus Christ.If you like the beach, van rides, prayer, conversation, being stretched, Jesus, and all-you-can-eat pancakes, then YOU WILL LOVE BEACH REACH!

Every year, thousands of college students descend on Panama City Beach during Spring Break looking to have a good time, but many of them are secretly hurting and searching for meaning in life. BeachReach is a unique missions experience designed to meet these students in some surprising ways and point them towards Jesus through acts of servant evangelism and verbally sharing the Gospel. At BeachReach, college students spend their spring break serving other students through free van rides for those who shouldn’t drive and free pancakes for breakfast each morning. During these interactions, they have the opportunity to verbally share the hope and love that Christ has for them. Throughout the week, attendees also enjoy insightful teaching and worship from some of the best leaders in college and young adult ministry.
