Casey provided an overview of the students’ work during Mardi Gras in a recent column in The Tidings. Here is an excerpt:

At Reach New Orleans, college students will spend their days serving parents and kids via family tents where they will lead activities for children and serve tourists with free food and water. They will also serve local police officers and other Mardi Gras workers by simply recognizing their value to the community during this time, seeking to meet their needs. During these interactions, college students will have the opportunity to share the hope and love that Christ has for them. Throughout the week, attendees also will enjoy insightful teaching and worship from some of the best leaders in college and young adult ministry.
