Alaska Baptist Partnership

Update for Alaska Summer Missions 

Alabama Resources Network has invited us to join them on mission July 21-29, 2023!

We need unskilled laborers. Our work will be mainly demolition and debris removal as we help with renovations of a building to serve as a Mission Center for the church to minister to the community. Dirt clean up not your skill set that's ok. We will also need a kitchen team to cook for the STCBA team. Please, contact Danny if you or your church is interested. Cost is $1,200 per person!

At the Alabama Baptist State Convention in November of 2021, Alabama Baptists approved the recommendation to enter a five-year partnership with the Alaska Baptist State Convention, which operates under the new name Alaska Baptist Resource Network. The purposes of this partnership is to provide much needed encouragement and support to our brothers and sisters serving in the state of Alaska. While Alaska is a large, beautiful state, it is a difficult place with many unique ministry challenges due to the climate, natural environment, military communities, and multi-cultural citizenry. Over the next 5 years we will have multiple opportunities to pray for, encourage, and work with our partners in Alaska.

Most mission trip opportunities will be during May, June, and July, although other, smaller teams may serve at various times throughout the year. However, the summer months are when most construction and outreach projects will be done.

For the summer of 2023 we have requests to send teams for three specific projects:

1. First Baptist, North Pole, Alaska

FBC has purchased a large log cabin across the street from their church building. It is being renovated for use as a Ministry and Mission Center. They need construction teams to help literally raise the roof, insert new supports, and then lower the roof back into place. We have detailed plans for those interested.

2. Moose Creek Baptist, Moose Creek, Alaska

Moose Creek is in an area that often loses power during winter storms. They are renovating the basement of the church building to serve as a shelter where the community may come during these times. The facility will have generators, gas heat, and a commercial kitchen with gas appliances.

Moose Creek also has need fo ministry teams to reach out to their community and the local Air Force Base.

3. First Baptist, Fairbanks, Alaska

FBC Fairbanks needs construction teams to assist with building renovation projects.

These churches can provide housing and cooking facilities for teams at the church facilities or in cooperation with other Associational churches.
