Typhoon Merbok Relief Efforts

Arctic Mission Adventure and Adventist Community Services are joining to provide relief to those Alaska villages devastated by Typhoon Merbok. The ministries are focusing on providing tier-one support to villages outside of hub areas that need immediate basic survival resources. Items needed are cases of drinking water and canned foods (12-14 oz), baby formula and diapers, flashlights and batteries, toothpaste and toothbrushes, deodorant and body wipes, and feminine hygiene products.

Items can be brought to the conference office at 6100 Omalley Road or Amazing Grace Academy, 2238 Inner Springer Loop in Palmer. Financial support can be provided through the link below.

John Winslow, Conference Education Director

John Winslow, Conference Education Director

The Alaska Conference Executive Committee and Board of Education extended a call to John Winslow to be the Director of Education and Youth and Young Adult ministries. The Winslow family visited Alaska in September and John has accepted the position. His ministry in education has included teaching in both elementary and high schools and 15 years as principal at both boarding and day academies. His ministry has led him to schools in Montana, Washington, California, Colorado, and now, Alaska. John is looking forward to supporting teachers, administrators, and lay people of Alaska. He is equally enthusiastic to continue growing a culture in our conference in which youth and young adults are connected with their church family and involved in leadership and community outreach for their local church.
