BREAKAWAY members on a service trip


Who we are.

BREAKAWAY offers service trips domestically and internationally in an effort to foster educational, cultural, and spiritual growth opportunities. BREAKAWAY encourages all students to step out of their comfort zone by immersing in a new culture, unplugging from social media/technology, traveling with students they may not meet otherwise, and serving in a way that stretches their perspective.

What to expect.

BREAKAWAY trips are unique to each location and each individual's experience. Generally, here's what you can expect:

  • To be stretched out of your comfort zone
  • To meet students on campus you may never have associated with
  • To see the world differently
  • To be challenged in your faith
  • To gain more than you give

Apply to be a student leader.

BREAKAWAY desires to grow students into leaders by creating opportunities for students to step into a new role. From assisting in reviewing applications, planning team meetings, distributing/gathering team paperwork, communicating with your partnering organization, supporting the team throughout the trip, and leading team debriefs, the student leader helps set the tone for serving.

Each trip needs one student leader! Opportunities for the 2017-2018 school year will be available soon.

Apply to be a staff leader.

For domestic trips, BREAKAWAY requires at least one staff leader to accompany each team while BREAKAWAY international trips require two staff leaders. What that means is there are lots of opportunities to get plugged in and join North Central students on a one of a kind experience serving others.

For more information, contact Director of Ministry and Service, Brian Rainville, or directly apply to lead a trip.
