Appalacian Ministry Outreach

It is always interesting how God orchestrates events in our lives.  A staff member meets someone and that person becomes acquainted with our Sports Camp Ministry.  Seven months later I’m in Big Stone Gap, VA talking with a group of pastors and lay leaders about us hosting a sports camp for at-risk youth in the Appalachian city of East Stone Gap, Virginia. The camp will be sponsored in part by a group of local churches and conducted by Infinity Sports.  This rural region of Appalachia was the original epicenter of the opioid crisis in America and remains heavily ravaged by the fallout today.  Prayers are appreciated as we assemble the team God would have us serve this IMG_4736community.
