Mission Immersion

AYM’s Mission Immersion programs are opportunities for groups of young people to dive into the challenges and needs of our neighbors who live on the margins of the Asheville community.  These programs include week-long summer mission trips, weekend trips in the fall and spring, and spring break mission trips.  Mission Immersion experiences include lodging, food, service at a variety of local agencies, and debriefing that uses Bible study, group discussion, and art projects lead by AYM staff.
