Floyd County Kentucky

July 25-30

This summer we will be partnering with World Servants missions organization. World Servants comes alongside communities by addressing four primary areas of sustainable community development with an emphasis on children and families. All of their trips are long-term connections that utilize teams to assist in bringing Health, Education, Faith and Economic help to each location.

We are headed to Floyd County, KY where our primary task will be relief through home repair and community service. We will be partnering along with some other churches to work in this area.
A NOTE: while most of our work will be outdoor and housing will be only with our team, the nature of our service will require us to submit to the concerns of those we are serving, certain job sites may require the wearing of masks.

Getting Started

There is a short application that we ask you to fill out online. It should only take a few minutes. Applications are due April 25, 2021.

Step Three: Fundraising and Support Letters

The cost for the trip will be about $600 per person. Don't freak out! We will help you with fundraising. At our first meeting we will explain support letters and help you get started along with some other fundraiser events along the way. You will need to pay the initial deposit of $100 but we feel confident that God will provide the rest! 


What will happen on this trip?
All World Servants short-term trips have 3 main components:
  • Construction: building or repairing homes, churches, community centers, etc
  • Outreach: kids club, sports camp, home visits, women’s ministry, etc
  • A focus on helping participants process their experiences through reflection, experiential learning exercises and discussion.
The daily schedule will vary by trip type but will allow for quiet time, construction and outreach, 3 meals, evening program, small group break-out time, free time and any possible community events during the week.

What are the sleeping arrangements?

What if I have food allergies? We will be able to refrigerate and reheat food. Pack food to bring (Pastor Zach usually does) and we can keep it cool and reheat it while we are there. 

Will I have to wear a mask? We need to be willing to. Most of our work will be outside and we will be sleeping only with our church but if someone we are serving asks us to wear a mask we must be willing.

I don't know if I can afford the trip. All we are asking is for you to pay the $100 deposit. We are trusting in faith that God will provide the rest of the funds for the team to go. We will host at least 2 fundraising events and will help you to write support letters in our first few meetings.
