Appalachian Youth Mission Trip

The Youth Group is currently collecting donations for their upcoming missions trip.

As part of an Orthodox Youth Mission Team (OYMT) they will have the opportunity to go on a week-long mission trip this summer to Appalachia, making Christ present by serving people in need and living in community with other Orthodox youth.

The Orthodox Youth Mission Team is a pan Orthodox group of high school students and adult leaders, led by Fr. Luke Mihaly of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in Danbury, CT. For the last 7 years they have been participating in youth mission work. They have taken part in the Appalachian Service Project (ASP) and most recently completed a short term OCMC mission trip to Napaskiak, Alaska.

Thee trip takes place July 7-15, 2018 serving with the Appalachian Service Project ( ASP is “a relational ministry with carpentry on the side.” Crews of teens and adult leaders will work on one family’s home to make it “warmer, safer and drier.” The mission team stays at a school or community center, living together and participating in devotional and team building activities.

Any financial help would be greatly appreciated! For more information, please contact Matthew Reed at
