• Young People In Mission

    This summer, we gathered together at Lake Junaluska for Young People in Mission, an event that brought together young people from across the Jurisdiction to educate them on how to seek justice in the world today. We had a great time with everyone who was there and really missed those who weren't! Check out our latest round of blog posts to relive the great memories. Details on the 2015 event are coming soon!

  • Honduras

    The Carolina Honduras Health Foundation has a small clinic for primary care in a remote area of Honduras. Often referrals are needed and they seek US medical specialists volunteering in Honduras. At this time, they are seeking an orthopedic team who could treat a 3 year old child with a broken femur which was improperly set at the time of the break. They are also seeking a cardiology team who might see an adult male with diagnosed cardiac issues. Please contact Ken Hook, President, Carolina Honduras Health Foundation at 757-234-0073.
