Summer Mission Trip

The Diocese offers a Youth Summer Mission Trip this year, July 13-20, 2019. We will join youth from the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia on a trip to the Appalachian Mountains for a week of service in partnership with the Appalachia Service Project (ASP).

ASP works with families in Central Appalachia to make homes warmer, safer and drier. Each summer they host groups in Tennessee, North Carolina, West Virginia and Kentucky. We will stay with other groups at one of ASP’s Summer Centers and will go out to work on homes in the area. Whether you’ve never worked with your hands, or you regularly work on house projects, there will be something for you to take part in during this ministry! In addition to our work, we’ll spend time in prayer, worship, play, and fellowship with our companions from Georgia!'

The trip is open to youth who are currently in grades 8-12. The cost of the trip is $600 per person, which includes meals. Scholarship assistance is available.

Space is limited so please sign up soon. Once all slots are filled a waiting list will be maintained. Registration deadline is March 15, 2019 and a $50 deposit is required. Register online at
