Why Alaska?

Why Alaska?

Minister in the most diverse neighborhoods in America. There are over 100 languages spoken in the Anchorage school district and in a couple block span you’ll find Sudanese refugees, Japanese fishermen, Mexican store owners, Hmong settlers, Dominican restaurateurs, and a Polynesian salon.

Small churches in the heart of the city battle poverty, alcoholism, drug abuse, and homelessness providing a spiritual haven and place to grow. Local pastors want the help and encouragement of outreach-oriented teams working alongside their congregations.

Get real with awesome kids in need of good role models.

Partner closely with local ministries devoted to making a difference each day in the lives of those they serve.

The rugged beauty of the Alaskan landscape with its 20 hours of summer sun is unmatched. Experience God’s creation throughout the week as you travel and minister in and around south-central Alaska. Take it all in through a 140-mile glacier cruise or horseback ride through crisp alpine air and picturesque rocky rivers.

Sea kayak on a glacier-fed high mountain lake; hike or bike through rugged pine forests. See moose, whales, sea otters, bald eagles, migrating salmon, and maybe a bear.
