Fairbanks, 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 weather can be extreme at times. There’s historical 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. Living as an Alaskan citizen can be much different than being a tourist there.

Skills

Taking a Group International 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:

  • Perform upkeep and help with maintenance and construction projects at Christian camp
  • Repair and maintenance projects and debris/tree cleanup for low-income households in Fairbanks
  • Help with projects at a homestead

Our Partners

Our projects have been coordinated by a local Christian camp, and involve many different types of service for upkeep of their campground. We will also be partnering with a local church to help run their Vacation Bible School and fellowship with their youth, among other community outreach projects.
