Can you passionately serve Jesus with your gifts & skill set while working in unity towards the mission of ABM?

Alaska Ministry Partner:

  • ABM has personally helped my family deal with the unique stresses of village ministry, and I have seen them joyfully serve many others in ministry as well. Perhaps even more important is the part ABM plays in helping to build Kingdom-focused connections across denominational and organizational lines for the advance of the Gospel. Thank you Arctic Barnabas!

Lower 48 Ministry Partner:

  • I think of ABM like the EMS or Fire and Rescue for Missionaries in Alaska. They are often the first responders in times of physical or spiritual needs, with denominations and supporters so far away. As well as being available for general assistance, training and encouragement.
