Blackburn House taking applications for new cohort
Interested in spending 11 months growing closer to Jesus in community?
The Blackburn House is a unique opportunity for folks who desire discipleship and service! Located in Todd, NC, Blackburn House is an intentional Christian community that seeks to help people in their 20’s grow as disciples as they serve in a rural context. The house is a program of Blackburn Community Outreach, a non-profit that works towards revitalization and rural community development. Days are framed by prayer, work at local service sites and Blackburn’s Chapel UMC, and becoming an important part of the community through building relationships with locals. The internship includes free room at the parsonage of Blackburn’s Chapel as well as a monthly stipend.
The following link will take you to the website for the Blackburn House. Check out the video and fill out an application today.

RESOURCES TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY:
The Appalachian District Church Vitality Team has been prayerfully seeking ways to help support you and the ministries of your local congregation during this COVID-19 pandemic. Together they have diligently researched and connected with others throughout the conference and our denomination to identify resources and offer them to you. We hope they will be helpful to you and bless you greatly in leading your churches and communities through this unprecedented time. We are very grateful to the District Vitality Team and other contributors for their great work on this resource.
This faithful team has created three documents, two of which you are receiving today. They include:
- Family Home Worship – designed to help families establish a regular worship space within their homes as well as a time where they can worship together.
- Tech Strategies – to help guide you in selecting effective tools and resources within your budget to best communicate in the digital world.
We believe these resources will be of great benefit to you. Also know that the District Vitality Team is available to answer any questions you might have in regards to the documents attached. If you have questions, you may email Rev. Howard Fleming at email@example.com.
