Urban Appalachian Project

Urban Appalachian Project

A key element in spiritual growth is reaching out to others to show the love of God. The Wade Center provides a perfect place for out-of-town groups to do this, offering opportunities both in community improvement and relational ministry.

The Wade Center Summer Missions Program, Urban Appalachian Project, is an eight week program designed to provide a safe, fun, learning environment for children in the Bluefield, West Virginia area.

Summer mission teams can expect a fun, memorable week of working with our children by teaching a customized Vacation Bible School curriculum and by serving our community through Community Outreach Programs.  Construction projects, volunteering at the Bluefield Union Mission, and working with local churches are a few opportunities we offer!

The Wade Center is also encouraging teams to serve year round.  Customization is our key, and we’ll work with you to make your trip impactful and memorable.  Our facility can accommodate up to 96 people with separate living quarters for men and women.  We are equipped with a full kitchen, shower facilities, restrooms, and enclosed parking.   

Game Room and "Cool Beans" Coffee Bar are available for Missionaires to enjoy during their off time!
