Although Alaska is known for its breath-taking beauty and incredible scenery, it is a state marked by significant spiritual darkness. Underneath its beauty, Alaska is fueled by widespread alcoholism (more than any other state) and is a leading state in terms of suicide rate. Unsurprisingly, Alaska has a comparatively lower number of healthy, evangelical churches. Servant Life is excited to be partnering with a church planter who is helping churches reach their communities with the gospel. Each short-term team will be partnering in ministry with a specific local church for the week, while also doing evangelism and outreach at specific community events.

What will my team be doing? 

Each week of ministry could look a little different based on the specific church you are partnering with and the particular needs and ministry opportunities of that church and the surrounding community. Teams will typically be running a VBS in partnership with the church each morning, helping the church share the gospel with local kids and their families. There are also often opportunities for light construction and labor projects around the church or in the community. In the evenings, there are often different ministry opportunities in the Anchorage area: sporting events, concerts in the park, and other events that provide fruitful opportunities for evangelism, sports ministry, and other forms of relational outreach.

What does a general weekly schedule look like?

  • Saturday. Travel day. Often a late arrival. Get settled in at the church.

  • Sunday. Attend local church service. Orientation and planning / prep for the week ahead.

  • Monday - Friday. Ministry days: Morning devotional, VBS with church, afternoon rest or labor project, evening evangelism / outreach.

  • Saturday. Planned off day. Cultural activities in Anchorage. Head to the airport that evening (flights are typically around 11 p.m. - 2 a.m.).

  • Sunday. Arrive back home in the morning.

What does my cost include?

  • In-country transportation. From the moment you land at the airport until the moment you leave, we will take you everywhere during the week.

  • Housing. Your team will sleep in disc-o-bed cots at a church. All bedding and linens are provided, and showers are on-site.

  • Meals. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner, every day! (Note: You need to pay for your own meals at the airport, while traveling, etc.)

  • T-Shirt. Every participant gets an awesome mission trip t-shirt.

  • Pre-Trip Training Material. We provide training sessions, trip overview documents, assistance from our team of mission trip experts, and communication with in-country missionaries to make sure your group is fully prepared for your trip.

  • Pre, During, and Post-trip Devotionals. This 4-week printed missions journal will help every team member grow and encounter Christ.
     

Airfare is not included in the trip cost, but will be taken care of by Servant Life's travel agent who gets humanitarian rates and often free baggage. You may book on your own if you prefer to do so, but we ask to approve the itinerary first.
