Heritage Ministries Inc. helps restore homes, lives, and communities in Harlan County, Kentucky in the heart of the beautiful Appalachians. Jeff and Linda Sim, the directors of Heritage, have been building relationships within the community since 2005 and are deeply trusted within the neighborhood. They primarily focus on home repair, providing resources to the community, and hospitality ministry through home visits and meal deliveries.
What teams will do
Teams will have the opportunity to assist with various home repair projects, participate in the preparation and delivery of meals to families in the neighborhood, go on prayer walks and build relationships with the community.
The team will stay in a guest house with 18 beds, 3 full baths, and a full kitchen. Towels and linens are provided. Teams will prepare their own meals at the house.
How do trips work at Touch the World?
In order to set up a short-term mission trip to any of our host locations, we require your team's participation in our 3-Day Missions Training Retreat.
Touch the World is a youth-focused missions organization specializing in training for short-term teams. We equip youth with an understanding of identity, culture, and mission that prepares them to live as sent disciples of Jesus in their everyday lives.
If your group is interested in training and trips, we'd love to connect with you! If you'd like to serve with one of our ministry partners, we'll help you decide which host location is the best fit for your group. To get started, submit an interest form!
