Appalachia Service Project (ASP) provides life-changing short-term Christian mission trip opportunities —bringing youth and adult volunteers into rural Central Appalachia to make homes warmer, safer, and drier for families in need. So come on and join us! You’ll raise roofs. Fix floors. And build a whole new you!
After a few days of hard work repairing homes with ASP, your hands will grow a little tougher, your arms a little stronger, and your relationship with God a whole lot deeper. You’ll return home with a passion for service, a renewed compassion for other people, and a fresh appreciation for your place and purpose in this world. Best of all, you’ll discover first-hand that regardless of geography, education, or economic class, we are all equal members of the family of God.
We will offer two training times for our mission trips and you are expected to attend one. This will be a time to connect as a team, prepare for the specific work we’ll be doing and the environment in which we will serve, and discuss our hopes and motivations for participating in this experience. The dates are Tuesday, April 26 and Thursday, May 12, both from 5:30-8 p.m., please indicate which time you would like to attend by marking your choice on the registration form.
Mission Trips Celebration
After our summer mission trips, we will once again share about our experiences at the Mission Trips Celebration. We will invite our church, as well as any family and friends, to join us for pictures, stories, worship and more from our weeks of service. You are expected to be present for this, August 7 in McWhirter Hall during Sunday School, and might also be asked to write a reflection, bring food or help in other ways.
