WHAT WE DO

JOIN THE TEAM

It amazes us how God brought the Arctic Barnabas team together, and we indeed are a team! We passionately serve Jesus with our individual gift and skill sets while we work together in unified dedication to the mission of ABM. Our staff families range widely in age and life experience, yet God shaped us individually for this ministry.

We continually sense the burden to strengthen and encourage more ministry families in remote locations of Alaska and Northern Canada, yet we simply need more staff and resources. Therefore, we ask God for more laborers. We want to build the team with individuals or families who resonate with the mission of ABM. Each staff family takes the Great Commission seriously to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20).

Founded in 2000, Arctic Barnabas Ministries (ABM) exists to strengthen and encourage pastor and missionary families to effectively advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout remote Alaska and Northern Canada.

One fifth the size of the lower 48 states, Alaska comprises approximately 230 communities. Only a handful of villages are accessible by roads. All equipment, food, and people must be transported to these remote villages by barge or aircraft. ABM operates several airplanes to access these villages for face-to-face contacts with the ministry families we serve.

We believe if equipped ministry leaders and their families serve in these villages with personal, spiritual vitality, their witness for Christ will prove much more effective. We desire to see these ministry families thriving as disciplemakers, not just surviving so the Gospel will transform lives.

Do you have what it takes to come along-side these courageous servants as a pastoral caregiver? Would you accept the challenge of raising support and moving your family to the Kenai Peninsula or a remote Arctic village (ABM is currently recruiting staff for several hub villages in Alaska)? If you sense God prompting you to consider this assignment, please contact us.
