The Alaska Conference of Seventh-day Adventists is the administrative headquarters located in Anchorage, Alaska that serves a membership of over 3,000 members worshipping in 36 churches and companies throughout the state.
Fitly named "The Last Frontier", Alaska is comprised mostly of isolated mini-civilizations so amazingly diverse that it stretches one's imagination to go from the swarthy Norwegian logging communities of the southeast to the Asian-style features of the Eskimos in the vast Arctic region.
Today the conference has a unique challenge: how do we reach the remote communities with the last message of the Gospel when 80% of towns and villages are only accessible by air? Over the years, many different strategies have been tried, yet the majority of the 230 villages remain untouched and difficult to reach. We are going back to what has worked in the past. In addition to our churches, pastors, radio and television, we invite missionary-minded people to our great state. Perhaps you could take a job in a remote village as a teacher or health care worker and serve as a lay leader. Maybe being a Bible worker is a better match. We would be happy to serve as a resource if you are interested in this type of opportunity.
