Ascension has had a long history of youth mission trips ranging from Appalachia Service Projec​t (ASP), Mississippi (Gulf Coast Trip), to Young Neighbors in Action (YNIA) in Tijuana.  Currently, we plan an annual ASP trip. Click on "SEE ALL" above to view our 2018 photos!



ASP Trip 2019 - July 20 – 27

Planning for the 2019 ASP Trip is under way and we are looking forward to another fun filled service trip making homes warmer, safer and drier.  In July, 168 people spent a week in West Virginia and Kentucky.  The week is a chance for us to serve those who have a real need for the help....what we get from them is a chance to live and experience our faith in a different way.
