Nada Baptist Mission
Nada is a small community in the Mountains of Eastern Kentucky. Lexington Avenue Baptist Church has maintained a relationship with the people of Nada since 2002 involving all ages--children, teens, and adults. Our fondness for Nada was expressed by one of our children after a trip to Nada, "When I grow up," she told her grandparents, "I want to live in Nada." Ministry in the area has included home repair, Vacation Bible School, preschool story time, children's activities, worship leadership, football tailgating with Nada youth, leadership training, and drinking bottles of Ale-8-One soda at the community store. The youth of Nada and Lexington Avenue have teamed up for mission trips to Danville, Booneville, and Arkansas. This has been a true partnership as the Nada community and Lexington Avenue Baptist Church have ministered to each other in a variety of ways.
Mountain Hope is a Kentucky Baptist Fellowship ministry with the Nada, Owsley County, and McCreary County in the Mountains of Eastern, Kenucky, which seeks to build up hope by partnering with persons in the community and other organizations. Mountain Hope emphasizes asset based community development, recognizing the strengths within the communities. Mountain Hope is a part of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship's Together for Hope initiative.
