Providing service and learning experiences in Central Appalachia

What is Appalachian Immersion?

In 2014, Middlesboro’s First Baptist Church signed on to a vision: become a place where groups could come and do missions in the mountains with integrity.

Appalachian Immersion offers youth and adult groups service and learning experiences that seek to replace stereotypes about the people, region, and culture of southeastern Kentucky and Central Appalachia with enduring relationships of Christian hospitality and hope. Where our faith tradition has been keen to “go and tell,” Appalachian Immersion offers to come alongside and to listen.
