Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

We aim to use volunteers and trained lay people to make a bold witness for Jesus in every community in Alaska. We believe that by connecting volunteers with communities, we not only make a bold witness in the communities in which we serve, but also we help to equip volunteers to become more effective witnesses to Jesus in their home communities.

We use volunteers that make long-term commitments to serve in remote Alaskan communities. We believe that the Gospel is best communicated in the context of authentic, loving relationships. That is why we always are looking to long-term, returning volunteers rather than volunteers that come only one year. We also put long-term missionaries in communities to deepen our outreach and the impact of our work.

Three full-time staff, five licensed deacons, and close to 500 volunteers work to accomplish our goal of making a bold witness for Christ in every community in Alaska. We partner with local churches and other agencies, such as Lutheran Indian Ministries, to reach places that we cannot reach with our volunteers.

We know we are making progress by the number of people in communities that make a commitment to Jesus and by the number of communities that invite us to return to serve each year. We also have new communities that are inviting us to serve them.

We serve almost fifty communities with servant events. We are looking to expand that number. We are also looking to place year-round missionaries in Southeast and in Southwest Alaska.
