For more than two decades we have hosted visiting mission teams from across the nation. These teams, through their dedication and efforts, have blessed McCreary County with their blood, sweat and tears. Most of our groups have been construction-oriented. Home building and repair allows for a tangible goal to be achieved. After working on a construction program, you can stand back and relish the fruits of your labor. There are some inherent problems with construction-oriented mission trips; they are by nature an effort which requires a higher level of skill, they are expensive to maintain, and they require an immense amount of logistical work for the teams and for Hills and Hollers Ministries. Couple this with the fact that our ministry focus is changing and growing to reach many more of those in need.
Yet, the need for help with their homes is ever present in the lives of the poor. While we still personally coordinate home repair projects for a few “small” mission teams, we believe that by partnering with other organizations that are already positioned in the construction-oriented ministries, we can help care for the needy in a greater and more efficient manner.
We still desire to enjoy spiritually intimate times with small mission teams. For us, these mission moments tend to be as much a period of spiritual refreshment as physical accomplishment. If you're interested in learning how your mission teams can fit into our outreaches, please contact us.
