Big Lake, Alaska | Group Mission Trips

To many, Alaska stands as America’s final frontier—beautiful, rugged, and maybe even a little dangerous. But for those few who call Alaska home, hardship is constantly knocking at the door, especially for the elderly. The extreme weather conditions, the annual risk of wildfires, the tension of different cultures living in close proximity, a surprising number of homeless people (especially teenagers), and high rates of alcoholism, domestic violence, and sexual assault make it anything but a glamorous and inviting place to live at times.

When you serve in Alaska with Group Mission Trips, you’ll have the chance to serve alongside those who are making a difference in Alaska. This experience will grow your faith and expand your understanding of the complexity of poverty and cultural diversity, even within our own country.

Skills

Taking a Group Mission Trip lets you see the world through God’s eyes. You’ll gain a fresh perspective about the work God does in local communities throughout the world and that new view will make you more aware of the different cultures and misperceptions about where you’re serving. With a deeper insight, you’ll return home transformed. Plus, you’ll grow closer to Jesus through acts of service and get to know him more deeply. We’ve partnered with long-term ministries that are rooted in the countries we serve. As you’re reading this, they are passionately serving and loving their neighbors, working to meet physical and spiritual needs in Jesus’ name. When we arrive, we come alongside their efforts for long-lasting impact. Types of work vary based on location, no special skills are needed!

What We Will Do

Here are examples of the types of projects you might be involved with:

  • Do landscaping, cleanup, or home repair projects for elderly or low-income residents.
  • Clear brush and debris with a local fire prevention organization, help to serve those in fire danger areas.
  • Assist with volunteer projects at a teen homeless center. Trail building or maintenance work.

Our Partners

Our projects have been coordinated by locals, and involve many different types of service. We lean on the local experts in churches and nonprofits to point us to the place we can help most. We’ve identified several key areas where you can help, including homeless initiatives, elderly housing, native programs, and fire prevention. Regardless of the work you do, you will experience “The Last Frontier” and help people in need along the way.
