Appalachia Mission Trips

The Appalachian region is an amazing place for ministry. It is an area rich in natural resources and beautiful landscapes. The people of Appalachia are incredibly humble, yet equally proud of their heritage and lifestyle. They are a hard-working, close-knit, family-first, hospitality-oriented group of people. The Appalachian people not only have to battle the geographical isolation of their location, but their hardship has been perpetuated by the large loss of jobs due to the decline of mining, steel, and several manufacturing industries. The shortage of gainful employment has led to severe poverty in many communities, and as a result, the effects of substance abuse, food insecurity, and homelessness have taken their toll. The hearts of many people have been fractured, and “hopelessness” is an all-too-common term used by many.
