What is the "Alaska Mission for Christ"?

Saturday after Pentecost 6
July 10, 2010

The Lord be with you

The Alaska Mission for Christ is a non-profit corporation organized and directed by the churches of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in Alaska. Their goal is to reach the small and often remote settlements and villages of Alaska with the message of the Gospel. They are mission-oriented and Gospel centered. Nearly a hundred sites across Alaska are served by trained lay ministers and volunteer teams to provide worship services, summer Bible school and studies, basketball camps and service projects.

Their mission statement is:

"The mission of the Alaska Mission for Christ is to share Christ in the Last Frontier (Alaska), its neighboring areas in the LCMS, and throughout the world."

Recently they announced a new member of their team. David Grosz has accepted Alaska Mission for Christ's invitation to serve as Missionary to Southwest Alaska. David and his family have served as missionaries with World Mission Prayer League in Nepal and Mongolia. David is presently serving with World Vision. Praise God for leading David to serve in Alaska. They ask for our prayers for him as he and his family start the transition to Alaska.

Blessings in Christ,
