Appalachian Regional Ministry


We hope each of you has had a good day. We know you are praying people and we have a prayer need that we want to share with you.

On Saturday, Dec 9, numerous mission teams will be assisting Pastor RJ Rose and FBC Coeburn/ Hope Center in Coeburn, VA with a very large Christmas event. Hope Center is registering families now for this event and expects around 1000 people in this impoverished area to attend. The event will be held at Coeburn Middle School. The mission teams will be feeding a free lunch, providing children’s games, new shoes and socks, a coat and blanket giveaway as  well as giving away around 500 filled Christmas backpacks to children. The gospel will be shared through puppets and the gospel message. Counselors will be in place to assist folks with questions. At the end of day, 300 boxes of food need to be distributed to families that are desperately needy. This is where the prayer request comes in.

Hunger is an increasing problem in our mountains at alarming rate. As we visit the compassion ministry centers with which we work, the need for food is often the main topic. Our ministries are having difficulty receiving food from the food banks because of lack of supply. We as believers in the Bread of Life must step up and be leaders in helping the poor. The scriptures show us that Jesus did this wherever He went. If Jesus did this, we should too.

Hope Center can obtain a box of food for $50 at cost in Coeburn,VA. We have no idea where the money is going to come from for them to purchase food for 300 boxes. But we know Who does. We are asking you to pray to the Provider God to take care of this need. Pray that He will get all the glory for providing food for the hungry of southwest Virginia.

If you have questions about these needs, you may contact Pastor RJ Rose at:
