CHRIST'S LOVE IN ACTION
Appalachia Reach Out’s mission is to be Christ’s love in action through being His hands, His feet, His heart, and His mission each day, every day, in all we do. We believe it’s through our acts of kindness, goodwill, love, and support people will come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Christ, through His example of love, grace and mercy, opened up doors with others through relationships. Our prayer is to do the same. This happens by showing Christ’s love through assisting our neighbor in a holistic approach so they can become disciples of Christ. ARO is honored and privileged to partner with Christians, churches, businesses, ministries, and individuals to carry out the love of Christ through the Great Commission in our community.
Work Groups & Missions
Each year we partner with many teams who feel led to come and do life with us for a week as we are the hands, feet, heart, and mission of Christ in a tangible way. These partnerships help us enhance our effectiveness for ministry in the heart of Appalachia.
Schools & Education
Education has and will always be an open door to impact the future of a child. ARO is blessed to have a healthy relationship with the Martin County School District.
