(ABC News) Once a year, hundreds of thousands of college students descend on the beaches of the Southern coast for spring break, but on a debauchery-fueled, booze-filled battleground in South Padre Island, one small group is going to parties to spread the word of God.
For the past 34 years, Buddy Young has led a Christian ministry called “Beach Reach” to the Texas island and notorious spring break hotspot to talk about Jesus.
“I’m not on the sin team anymore, I’m not on the party team, but I want to come back and help my party people get to the team they all want to be at,” Young said.
And he’s not alone. His ministry consists of college-age spring breakers with a much different purpose — to pray for the partiers.
