Impact WV

Ministry Description

Impact WV is an exciting and rewarding outreach ministry, designed to encourage and equip individuals with no missions experience or to challenge those who have done it for years. It is well suited for high school & middle school groups, college students, families with children and all adult teams. The outreach ministry is set in and around Fairmont, WV which is in the heart of West VA’s ‘coal country’. This is a unique culture that will inspire and reward everyone open to investing in it.

Teams will partner with a new PCA church plant, Dayspring Community Church, as they serve together in both Word and deed! Relationship building is the key to positive ministry growth. It is through these relationships that doors open for sharing the Gospel. Team-building and individual Christian growth are natural consequences of serving together in Kingdom building.

Project Description

Our focus is serving the widow, orphan and others with need as homes are repaired, handicap decks/ramps are built.  Children’s lives are changed through Vacation Bible School (VBS) and Back Yard Bible Clubs.  In addition, outreach is encouraged through sports camps, tutoring, one-on-one evangelism, working with the elderly and serving in the Dayspring kitchen, there is a ministry for everyone! Unique ministry equipping and team building occur as the Gospel is lived out in practical ways.

Housing/Meals

Impact WV teams stays at Dayspring Camp and Conference Center (Dayspring), which has bunk beds in open bay cabins along with some divided cabins for small families and groups. The camp can hold approximately 175 participants per week. Teams will need to bring towels and bed linens/pillow.  Breakfast and dinner are served at the camp; sack lunches and water or lemonade are supplied for the work-site.

Transportation

Each team provides their own transportation for all travel to and from Dayspring Camp, all work sites and any off campus activities.

Spiritual development

Morning devotion times, opportunities and challenges for service, and group devotions with host families are available to encourage spiritual growth. A full evening program (for all ages) offers wonderful opportunities to worship God through hearing His Word from gifted speakers, singing led by talented musicians and times of prayer and sharing.

Half-day off
