Pastors: You want your youth group to feel like they matter. You want them to feel significant, empowered, and for their lives to count for something. You read about the way the followers of Jesus lived in the first century, and you long for that kind of life -- where living out your faith means hearing the voice of God and changing people’s lives.
You want to take your youth to the next level with God. You want changed lives.

Despite vast natural resources and beauty beyond measure, Appalachia fights for freedom from poverty and despair daily. Unemployment tracks higher than the national average, and many people in this area work in low-paying jobs below their skill level. Many residents are jobless, poverty-stricken, and lacking in educational resources. The people of the Appalachian mountains are strong and come from a legacy of hard work, but years of discouragement have taken their toll. Many people work multiple jobs, collect government aid, and sacrifice just to make ends meet.
The people of Appalachia need help to restore their promise of a better future.
While in Appalachia, you'll work alongside Hunger First ministry, and opportunities include:
Building Relationships: Your primary ministry will be to the elderly, joining in games and crafts, singing songs, telling stories, and building relationships with those who feel forgotten.
Home Restoration/Work Projects: You will also partner with a non-profit ministry that helps with basic home repairs and cleaning to the elderly or homebound individuals. Most of all, you'll build relationships with those isolated from society, reminding them that they are seen and loved by God.
You'll stay in a cabin in Duffield, VA with 40 beds, western toilets/showers and separate bathrooms for men and women. There will be a full kitchen where you'll prepare your meals. There's no electricity in the cabin, but the church has electricity and wifi.
God is calling you to journey with Him, to share His love with the nations and establish His Kingdom on earth. Will you join Him in Appalachia?
