In House Ministries
Anchor of Hope Youth

AOH youth meets every Wednesday night for worship plus a message geared directly for today’s high school and college age students. In addition to our weekly service we also meet regularly for fellowship and go on trips with other youth throughout the year. We have an annual trip to Barborville, KY for youth camp in July and many other events throughout the year. If you would like to get plugged in to AOH youth or just have questions you can call youth Pastor E.J. Lamb at 513-310-8318. Look forward to seeing you soon.

Children’s Church

AOH Children’s Church meets every Wednesday night at 7pm for ages 2 up to 13.

Children’s Home

AOH has long been a supporter of the children’s home in Barbourville, Kentucky where many of our youth have found healing, guidance and training to become productive adults. It is located on the grounds where every summer is held our Pentecostal Campmeeting, Youth camp and Ladies Retreat. AOH has the distinction of being the longest continuous contributor going back to the days of our founding pastor Rev. Edgar J. Kelley. The home is under the capable leadership of Steve Yeary. The mailing address is:

Appalachian Children’s Home

Foreign Missions

Missionary endeavor continues to be a priority of AOH as we recognize this as part of the fulfilling of our Lord’s “Great Commission” to take the message of salvation from sin through Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. We believe it is our part to help in the sending of those who are called to go and by so doing shall share in the joyous reward of the harvest reaped.

One of these works we have supported for more than 30 years is a ministry under the direction of veteran missionaries Melvin and Delilah Kincaid. Their faithfulness in this work has resulted in thousands being saved and scores of local churches established in Mexico, Guatemala and parts of Central America. Their stateside address is:

Guate-Mex Vision Inc.
Director: Melvin Kincaid
PO Box 171
Mission, Texas 78573

Another husband and wife team of veteran missionaries we’re blessed to partner with is Bill And Carlene Pepper who through God’s grace have seen thousands come to Christ in the country of Peru and other parts of the world. They can be reached stateside at this mailing address:

Full Gospel Church
PO Box 873060
Wasilla, Alaska 99687-3060

A third ministry we are blessed to be part of is the “House of Hope” in the country of Armenia where many of the elderly who often lack the very basic necessities are taken in and given a comfortable bed, food and clothing. Many of them know nothing about Jesus and his love and when told have given their lives to Him. A number of which are now with Him in heaven. This ministry is under the direction of Missionary-Evangelist Darrell Turner. More information is available by writing:

A number of other missionary efforts are also supported by AOH on a special offering basis at various times as God by His grace provides. To Him be all the Praise!
