June 30 - July 6, 2018

Harrogate, TN


 
 The 2018 Appalachia Mission will mark the 38th year of God’s grace being spread in the Appalachian Mountains. During this one week mission trip the gospel will be shared with children living in this area. Young people will give of themselves creatively and enthusiastically, often sacrificing sleep and comfort for the privilege of having Jesus love children through them, and children will come to know Christ as their Savior. Through this ministry, hundreds of young people have served and thousands of children have received at least a hug in the name of Christ. This year the mission continues.
