Angel Tree is a ministry of Prison Fellowship. Please consider sponsoring a child.
Applications are here on site at the Buncombe Baptist Resource Center.
These applications represent children who live in the Asheville area whose parent or parents are incarcerated. Prison Fellowship recommends that $25 be spent per child. Hopefully this will enable every child to have a gift on behalf of their parent and in the name of Jesus. This is a hands-on ministry. Once you choose an application, you contact the caregiver of the child and make arrangements to take the gift to the child before Christmas. By giving a gift to the child on behalf of the parents, you will provide an important bond between parent and child.
Dennis Thurman, Senior Pastor of Pole Creek Baptist Church, will soon conclude this year's mentoring group of young ministers. He will begin a new group in January. If you are called to ministry and are under the age of 40, or have been in ministry for less than 5 years regardless of age, you may contact him about an application to join the next group. A maximum of 12 will be taken.
It is a monthly meeting, on the fourth Saturday of the month from 9-11 AM. (site to be determined) Breakfast is provided, and there is no cost except for the monthly book you will purchase and read.
If you would like more information, or want to request an application, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call his office at 667-4053

It is our goal to join forces with churches, civic organizations, schools, and city officials to end the list of fatherless boys waiting for a mentor.
