Christ's Love in Action
His Hands, His Feet, His Heart, His Mission
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 serve those in Martin, Perry & Pulaski County, KY & Nicholas County, WV. 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.
ARO has been ministering to the people of Appalachia since 1972. Our ministry focuses on three main areas: education, addiction recovery care and work & witness. We believe that if we are going to break the generational chains of poverty we have to impact our children through education. Secondly through addiction recovery care we partner to bring those that have struggled with addiction from crisis to career. Lastly we host work & witness teams which are groups of people that come to serve on short term missions projects.
