Since the leadership of the Episcopal Church called on the Appalachian bishops to develop a program in response to Appalachian poverty over 45 years ago, Episcopal Appalachian Ministries has been responding. The resulting coalition of Episcopal dioceses has existed under three different names: Appalachia South, Appalachian Peoples Service Organization and now Episcopal Appalachian Ministries.
EAM continues to fulfill the response to domestic poverty by the Episcopal Church in Appalachia. Through our broad programs of education, advocacy and mission, we are ministering to the needs of Appalachia at a grass-roots level. We do this through our mission program of sponsoring summer work camps in various parts of Appalachia. In addition to this we have our Small Grants Initiative in which we grant money to ministries to aid them in start-up costs. EAM also is active in helping sponsor conferences and training programs that help individuals and parishes ministering to the needs of Appalachian people.
Your support of EAM is crucial to the ministry of the Episcopal Church in Appalachia. Please consider giving to EAM during this next year. Your on-going support allows us to continue to ministry of EAM by living into our Baptismal Vows. We thank you for your past gifts and ask you to continue your generous support along with your prayers for this important ministry.
