Throughout its history, the Evangelical Church has always been concerned for the underpriveleged and unreached. Through a comprehensive survey of the needs of the mountains of Kentucky, it was decided that this was a logical place to do missionary service. The underpriveleged of the mountains of Kentucky had long since been neglected. The Evangelical Church accepted that area to further its missionary enterprises.
