Reverend Ralph Beiting helps children in Appalachia

Christian Appalachian Project’s mission is building hope, transforming lives, and sharing Christ’s love through service in Appalachia.

CAP's core values:

Faith, Service, and Compassion

Our guiding principles are to:

  • Promote the dignity and self-worth of individuals by promoting self-help.
  • Practice and encourage good stewardship of and accountability for all of the resources entrusted to us.
  • Foster individual growth among staff, volunteers, donors, and program participants.
  • Live out and promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ through all of our actions.
  • Foster open, honest and effective communication both inside and outside the organization.
  • Involve the Appalachian people at all social and economic levels in developing a solution to poverty.

CAP programs are available to all, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, political affiliation, or any other basis prohibited by statute; or any other legally protected classification. Disabilities will not limit opportunities when it is possible to reasonably accommodate the disability of the qualified person.


Prayer Requests

Our faith calls us and sustains us— that's why Christian Appalachian Project gathers for chapel each day. If you or a loved one are in need of prayers, please let us know and we will lift up your request.
