Located in a rural, poor, and beautiful area of Southeastern Kentucky Red Bird Mission plays an important role in the local community. Being affiliated with the United Methodist Church the mission provides spiritual, educational, health, and community outreach ministries.
During Covenant’s annual mission trip to Red Bird we serve in the community through various projects assigned by Red Bird Mission staff. We’ve worked to improve housing for persons unable to do the work themselves and helped to unload semi-trucks full of donations. It’s a time of growth spiritually, socially and sometimes in areas we didn’t realize (muscles-etc). Being a part of the team going to Red Bird is not only a wonderful opportunity to serve but also an opportunity to learn about a different culture, to meet people from around the country that are also at Red Bird to serve, to develop a closer relationship with our team members and to grow stronger in our faith.
