We have a summer mission opportunity for you! Brothers' Keeper is a multi-denominational stateside mission June 17 to 24, 2023 sponsored by the West Virginia Baptist Association. The Brothers’ Keeper ministry is based at Parchment Valley in Ripley, West Virginia.
Brothers' Keeper reaches out to the Jackson County West Virginia area (one of the poorest in all of West Virginia) by building wheelchair ramps, decks, house repairs, tarring roofs and more. Our students will lead in various capacities while serving on work teams around the county.
Several of our ACT'ers have participated in this mission through the years. If you would like to participate in Brothers' Keeper, registration forms and more information is available from leadership.
Brothers' Keeper, affectionately known as "BK" for short was established in the year 2000. Based at Parchment Valley Conference Center reaches out every year to the community for mission projects. Most are construction projects for low income families or families with a handicapped member. Youth groups from around West Virginia and surrounding states have come in to do mission work in Jackson County, West Virginia.
Every year Brothers' Keeper serves over families all over Jackson County, all while developing a mind for mission work in over 100 youth missionaries and our adult counselors and crew chiefs.
At the center of yearly planning is gospel scripture from the book of Matthew, chapter 25, verse 40. What better way to serve Christ than by serving his creation?
