Orthodox Christian Fellowship [OCF], the official campus ministry of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America, recently opened registration for its 2019 “Real Break” opportunities for college students.
OCF’s Real Break—an alternative to “Spring Break”—aims to prepare college students to be socially informed Orthodox Christian citizens of this world while directing their focus on the world to come – the Kingdom of heaven. Built on a foundation of fellowship, education, worship, and service, Real Break provides students the opportunity to understand the true meaning of seeing Christ in the other by traveling to all parts of the world to deepen their faith, serve those in need, and cultivate relationships with like-minded peers.
OCF will offer nine Real Break trips in 2019. March Spring Break trips include Romania, Albania, Houston, Project Mexico, Jerusalem, Thessaloniki and Alaska. OCF will also offer two summer 2019 trips to Mount Athos (male only) and Jerusalem (female only).
Registration costs vary according to the trip and limited scholarships are available for those who qualify.
