Ascension has had a long history of youth mission trips ranging from Appalachia Service Project (ASP), Mississippi (Gulf Coast Trip), to Young Neighbors in Action (YNIA) in Tijuana. Currently, we plan an annual ASP trip. Click on "SEE ALL" above to view our 2018 photos!
Planning for the 2019 ASP Trip is under way and we are looking forward to another fun filled service trip making homes warmer, safer and drier. In July, 168 people spent a week in West Virginia and Kentucky. The week is a chance for us to serve those who have a real need for the help....what we get from them is a chance to live and experience our faith in a different way.
Please be sure to turn in both the appropriate form (teen or adult) as well as the ASP Registration sheet as we need both of them filled out. The deadline is October 22nd. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
For those going on the trip, if you need the packing list, you can find it here.
Appalachia Service Project has been a beloved aspect of Ascension youth ministry for over 20 years. Decades ago this trip began with a small group of 5 vans totaling 35 people and has grown to 23 vans equaling 161 people. AYM usually goes to ASP the last full week of July, which is known as “week 7” to ASP-ers.
