Missions Trip Information

Ministry Description

Ministry Partner: Family Worship Center- Pastor Charles Rose

Plagued with high unemployment after the decline of the coal industry, McDowell County’s population has dwindled from nearly 100,000 in 1950 to around 19,000 today. The government deems McDowell County to be the poorest in the nation, as well as the place with the lowest life expectancy due to high smoking and obesity rates. In the past 15 years, the opioid epidemic in this region has killed more people than anywhere else in the nation, except in neighboring Wyoming County.
