Teams will come alongside the community members and improve living conditions, opening doors to share Jesus. You will learn about the Appalachian culture, which places a strong emphasis on family values, and work with them to help improve the community.
The majority of the mission week will be spent on home renovation projects. Most of the homes we encounter are in disrepair and will benefit from the work of loving hearts and hands. Projects can include installation of vinyl siding, windows and doors, roofing, constructing a wheel chair ramp, giving an elderly person easy access to their home, building a deck, painting, and general clean up around the property.
Team members will participate in several outreach events, which offer the opportunity to interact with the community and build relationships. Groups will spend time doing Kids’ Club (VBS), sports camp, visiting the elderly in the nursing home, or whatever the community leadership team decides.
