Upcoming ARP Events & Conferences

Appalachia gives an opportunity to share the gospel with children in the Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia mountains through planning and carrying out a VBS program at a site secured for you.

Students registering for the Mission Trip must have completed the 9th grade (exceptions made on an individual basis). Each group needs to form a team with a minimum of 11 students and 3 adult leaders. The leaders will train the students to have a week-long Bible Club for a church in the Appalachia area. It is also strongly recommended that you provide an adequate number of both male and female chaperones for your team. We will help to match your group up with a church if you have never attended. If your group cannot form an entire team (11 students & 3 adults), we will help you partner with another group.
Registration is due on APRIL 25 for your group!
The total cost per person is $280.00. We will stay at Camp Jubilee in Tazwell, Tennessee To register your group, please complete and send in the “Group Registration Form” included in the information packet or register online on or before April 25. After April 25 the total fee will be $305.00 per person with a late fee.
