Opportunity to engage in ministry

  • 55 Lake Eden Road Black Mountain, NC, 28711 United States (map)

The Swannanoa Women's Correctional Center is a minimum security correctional facility and the only women’s unit in Western North Carolina. Through the Ministry of Hope, two chaplains serve the women there. One of the chaplains is Rev. Shannon Spencer, our adjunct pastor for mission engagement. FPCA has long ties to this ministry, as we host a mother-child retreat for the women each year. There are a variety of opportunities for volunteers to connect with and support the women. 

A training will be held for new volunteers on Tuesday, October 10 @ 6:00 PM at the center. You are invited to come that night with a photo ID. The training should last about 2 hours, and it will enable you to participate in our Love Asheville Day of Mission on 10/29 or other times.  If you have any questions, contact Michael Poulos or Shannon Spencer.
