ACYOA Mission Trip

"You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask him in my name." John 15:16

The ACYOA Mission Trip is a weekend-long, faith-based service trip for young adults to provide outreach to a mission parish of the Eastern Diocese and its community at large. The ACYOA Central Council revived this initiative in February 2020 by partnering with Habitat for Humanity.
