An adventure is waiting for you in Western Pennsylvania!
Just an hour outside of the bustling city of Pittsburgh lies a small town fighting for its life.
Tucked in a valley between the Appalachian Mountains, the mining community of Johnstown, Pennsylvania struggles to survive. Throughout its history, tragic floods have repeatedly devastated the valley, killing thousands and driving residents and employers alike to higher ground.
Recent economic growth has hinted at a recovery in Johnstown, but this area faces an uphill climb. Almost 20 percent of families live below the poverty line.
Many people face these circumstances without the hope of Jesus.
Western Pennsylvania needs you.
Your team will come alongside Crucified Ministries to connect with the people that churches often avoid. Pack your skateboard and build relationships with local youth at Life Over Death Skate Park. Bring action to the word of God as you serve dinner to homeless and broken people.
You can also reach out and help at-risk children, youth, and families in the community with New Day. Travel to the nearby town of Colver to lend a hand in what God is doing as Jeremy Barclay builds a youth center for teens.
Experience love and life in a whole new way as you build honest relationships with people who need the hope and encouragement of Jesus.
While you are in the beautiful Appalachians, you and your team could also wander through the peaceful forests, or you can hook your car up to the “Johnstown Inclined Plane”—the world’s steepest vehicular incline plane!
Western Pennsylvania is fighting to recover. Will you be the one to bring promise to this ravaged valley?
