We take adult leaders to Bible & Beach who have been screened and completed background checks. Each leader is responsible for no more than six students.

Bible & Beach 2016 | Blankenbaker Campus - WAITING LIST
Thanks for your interest in Bible and Beach! This event is at capacity and registration is now closed. We do have a waiting list available, but this does not guarantee your student will receive a spot at Bible and Beach.
Students signing up for the waiting list MUST turn in the following items to be added to the list:
A check for $499 made out to SECC with your student’s name on the memo line
Please bring the completed forms and check to the front desk of the Ministry Resource Center.
Students will be placed when a slot for their grade and gender becomes available. Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that a spot will become available for a waiting list student. If a student is not added to the Bible and Beach 2016 trip, the check for that student will be destroyed and will not be deposited.
Southeast Student Ministry will notify each family if a spot becomes available for their student. If we don’t hear from a notified family within 24 hours, we may have to give the spot to another student on the waiting list. Thanks for your patience and understanding throughout this process!
