Event description

Description

Each year in June, approximately 120 adults, college leaders and youth travel to Mullens, West Virginia for a weeklong mission trip to rebuild and restore homes for families and local establishments like the Food Bank and St. Vincent de Paul Center that serve the community year-round. Preparation for the Mission Trip begins months in advance with a dedicated Core Team of volunteers who scout out sites, plan and prepare for the work that will be done. The adults and college leaders guide the youth missionaries throughout the week both on the jobsite and off. In addition to working a jobsite, the missionaries have an opportunity for recreation in the evening, prayer and discussion with their small group and dynamic evening programs lead by the youth ministers. By the end of the week, not only have the missionaries changed the lives of those they’ve served, but their own lives will never be the same.

Appalachia Mission Statment

The Appalachia Mission Trip of St Richard Church serves the Appalachia Region by bringing the hope of Christ through Christian witness and physical improvements to the living conditions.

We strive to deepen a thankful attitude toward our many blessings, foster a desire to serve those in need and encounter Christ in others.

The Appalachia Mission Group is committed to serving with humility, promoting a message of love and understanding, while representing Christ through action, word, and prayer.
