We Are

Making a Difference

Come Serve With Us!

Our mission exists to share the hope of Jesus Christ by meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs  of our residents.  Our two campus locations are located in Kentucky counties which have been named the first and third hardest places to live in America.  We do simple things.  We help struggling families, provide hope for hurting neighbors, and show love to everyone we meet.  Our priority is people, not projects.

We hope you'll come help us serve the wonderful people of Eastern Kentucky! 

Your team will have multiple opportunities to serve.  Your team can decide exactly what you do! 

You can help complete major (and minor) construction projects. You can serve the homebound and disabled. You can visit and serve alongside various community ministries, including food pantries, nursing homes, and child/adult care agencies.  

*See the study at this link 

This is easy to plan for families & groups  3 simple steps:


On that form, you'll tell us: 

1) who you are

2)  when you desire to come (Spring or Fall dates) 

 3) which campus location

4) basically what you want to do!  

We'll verify those dates with you and reserve your spots! 


Read our group planning guide!  (see link below!) 


Then, after reading, start recruiting your team.  We welcome ALL ages and types of groups!  We hope you will recruit a team that can help us minister in the community.   Once your team is put together, you can have them complete permission forms online -  HERE


We will take care of your food, lodging, project planning,  and almost everything else (except your transportation). We will be in touch with you regarding your service possibilities while serving with us.  

We don't have a set fee... we just ask for a donation.  Our suggested donation is $30 per person per 24 hours.  

All ages and group types are welcome!

ANY type group is welcome here.  We regularly host families, student groups, college groups, men's groups, law enforcement  groups, senior adult groups business groups, Christian School groups, and senior adult groups. Individuals are welcome, too!  We will typically provide some dates for individuals to partner with teams already on site.   All ages are welcome.  Children under 12 need to bring their parents!

We host groups in Spring, Summer & Fall

Big Creek Campus Available Dates: 

February 25- May 6 and 

Labor Day - Thanksgiving 

**Because of the huge costs of heating our Big Creek Facility, we close for the winter.  However, if a group of 60+ desires to serve with us for more than 3 days, we may be able to open for you in the winter!  


Wheelwright Campus Available Dates: 

At our Wheelwright campus, you may choose to serve almost anytime through the year! Our staff does take a break two weeks before and after our summer sessions.  Contact tammy@bigcreekmissions.com for more information.

Our Summer dates are pre-planned and costs are set.  Please view information about summer trips at www.bigcreekmissions.com/summer 

You can set your travel dates!

You tell us when you want to arrive and when you need to leave.  Trips can be as short as 1 day or as long as you desire.  We host day trips, week long trips, or weekend trips.

Your group serve in a variety of ways...

Depending on your skill levels, your group can do any of the following: 

*Construction:  assist homeowners in need with basic home repairs of all types

*Community:  serve in our food pantry, clothing centers, visit nursing homes, mow lawns

*Children:  work with local schools, children's programs, and lead daycamps (as available)

We offer two different locations!   

Our Leslie County (Big Creek) facility is great for groups of all sizes up to 200 people.  Our bunkrooms have heat & air, and decent mattresses.  Our shower rooms are brand new... and are really nice!   Check out our Big Creek  pictures here


At Big Creek, we do have some semi-private accomodations for up to 10 people.  

Our Floyd County (Wheelwright) facility is great for groups up to 65 people. We are constantly improving the building!  We have several showers, and a unique facility great for all group sizes. We love families and married couples too and can accommodate family groups in various dorms  See Pictures HERE

Some semi-private accomodations are available. 

Our food is pretty good, too!

We will do our best to feed your team well!   We ask you to give your best to our community, so we're doing to give our best to you, our guests.   Your team will help us do some meal prep and clean up afterwards.  You can see our menu in the group planning guide

The cost is up to you!

Our spring and fall missions are donation based.  Our costs (and suggested donation) average around $30 per person, per 24 hour period.  Feel free to donate as you feel led.  We trust the Lord to provide through his people!
