Arctic Barnabas Ministries

2019 Project Opportunities

Here is an opportunity for you to see Alaska while partnering with Arctic Barnabas Ministries as we serve the needs of some pastors and missionaries spread all across Alaska. We encourage churches to recruit teams. Some projects require hard physical labor, some do not. Teens can join some teams but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Fees to participate are estimated to be $1200.00 for all remote projects and $600.00 for projects in Homer, Soldotna, and Kenai area. Participants must provide transportation to Anchorage or Kenai, depending on trip logistics. Travel to remote villages will be coordinated by ABM. Meals and housing are provided during the projects. Project dates are somewhat flexible depending on team needs. Contact for more information.
