Reaching the souls of the Alaska-Yukon

It is just as exciting as it is challenging. The highly postmodern mindset in the Far North provides the perfect opportunity for reaching people who are seeking authentic truth and true spirituality. This climate of searching hearts and minds is an open door for Biblical truth and the undeniable, unexplainable power of the God. The challenge lies in the enormous size of the district; 959,734 square miles, with many communities only accessible by boat or plane. 

It is this blend of opportunity and challenge that the Alaska-Yukon district is expanding its reach through relevant ministries, meeting today's needs with ancient, timeless truth.

Men’s Ministry

It takes men of God to be strong leaders within their homes, churches, and communities- this is the purpose of Men’s Ministry. Providing resources to the men of the Alaska-Yukon District to become what God has destined them to be. The annual Men’s Retreat has been a powerful motivator and a spirit-filled event. We are focused on providing a strong platform of support to the men of the Great Northwest!

Women’s Ministry

It was once said that it takes an extraordinary woman to live in the North. This may be why the district is filled with amazing women of all ages and backgrounds. To connect with these women, the Women’s Ministry offers a Women’s Retreat every year.
