Appalachia Service Project (ASP) is a Christianministry, open to all people, that inspires hopeand service through volunteer home repair inCentral Appalachia, specifically in the states ofVirginia, WestVirginia, Kentucky andTennessee. ASP provides one of the mostrewarding structured service opportunities inthe nation — bringing thousands of volunteers from around the country to rural CentralAppalachia to repair homes for low-income families, elderly, and disabled.Every year more than 13,00 teens in youthgroups travel to Appalachia to make homeswarmer, safer, drier. ASP helps to teach newskills, create friendships, build confidence anddeepen faith lives. We stay in a local school orcommunity center for the week and spend thedays working alongside one another. In theevening there is time to hang out with friends,worship, sing, play games and learn a littleabout the Appalachian culture. ASP helps tomake homes more livable but it is also a time ofrelationship building. Each dayoffersopportunities to interact with the family you’vebeen assigned to serve. Working alongside yourcrew members forges abiding friendships.Serving others opens you to God working withinyou.
• Make one family’s home warmer, safer, and drier • Repair roofs, install insulation, fixfloors, shore up foundations, buildhandicapped ramps, and perform ahost of other improvements and repairs • Worship, bond, and pull together as agroup • Lift an Appalachian family’s spirits andremind them that God’s loveknows noboundaries

The ASP theme of 2013 is “Radical Reversal:as followers of Christ, we are to modelChrist’s teaching and lifestyle as those whothink of others before thinking ofthemselves.” This theme is based on Mark 10:43-45 “…Whoever wants to become greatamong you must be your servant, andwhoever wants to be first must be slave of all.For even the Son of Man did not come to beserved, but to serve, and to give his life as aransom for many.”
