Arctic Barnabas Ministries
Scope of Ministry


ABM cultivates trust in relationships with ministry leaders through life-giving communication and fellowship.  God’s Word, prayer, and ongoing connection create platforms for spiritual formation to help families thrive in places where they minister.  We shepherd pastors, missionaries, and their families with listening ears and open hearts through face-to-face visits, phone calls, coaching, counseling, e-mails, social media contact, and celebrating their special days with cards.   


ABM helps ministry families acquire the proper tools and supplies to endure the Arctic. No one survives in remote Alaska without delivery of supplies by air cargo or ocean and river barge.  We also send staff and volunteer work teams during all seasons to serve ministry families in remote parts of the Arctic.  Work team projects often include home weatherization, equipment repair, delivery of supplies, and more.  We also combine spiritual and practical ministry as we do church maintenance, crisis/emergency care, pulpit supply, small engine and vehicle repair, and buy and ship supplies to bush locations.


ABM provides an Annual Ministry Family Retreat at Victory Bible Camp tailored to the unique needs of those serving in remote Alaska with opportunities for rest, connections, and growth for the whole family.  We also host men’s and women’s retreats with gifts and life-giving fellowship to refresh their spirits.  


ABM helps prepare pastors and missionaries with resources for the challenges of ministry service in the Arctic. Providing coaching and training for branding, fundraising, and marketing for the missionary population, missionary orientation, and member care training for organizations. 


ABM provides platforms for relationships that foster unity, communication, and encouragement among Christian evangelicals across Alaska.  We connect ministry families, which creates strategic partnerships between ministries.  We desire to see a thriving gospel-centered church in every village in Alaska.
