FULL DETAILS | UMN Navs Spring Break 2015: Christ is All
This year, UMN Navs is excited about taking a trip to Panama City, Florida! Every year, our Spring Break trip strengthens our Navs community more than anything else we do. We plan on taking a major trip like this every three years (with regional/local Spring Break experiences in between). Now's your chance to join for the "big trip"!
Under the theme of "Christ is All," we'll get away and deepen our focus on Christ in all of life, deepen our community bonds, and enjoy a refreshing time at a retreat center on the beaches of Florida.
We want to dive in and explore how Christ is ALL in our salvation, our spiritual growth, our identity, our mission, our work, and in the body of Christ -- all in the context of an encouraging community.
Bottom line is: spiritual growth, personal time with God, friendship, community, outreach, road trippin', beaches, fun & rest.

This trip will be more relaxing and relational than most Christian events or retreats, (which tend to be packed from morning to night). We won't start anything official too early (some sleeping in), and there will be significant rest and fun time built in.
There will be daily time with God, daily group Bible study, and a few ministry experiences. The rest will be pretty fun and relaxed, focused on relationships and community. You WILL come back more rested than when you left!
