We are Ward and Megan Hurlburt. We have two little girls, Ellie and Erin. Megan grew up in Dillingham, Alaska and Ward lived many places but has his roots in Naknek, Alaska. We met at Tanalian Bible Camp and connected over wanting to see Jesus’ light shine through Alaska. We both have a love for flying and airplanes. As newlyweds Ward and Megan jumped right into youth ministry in Dillingham and after several years realized we needed some professional skills. We knew shining Jesus’ light in Bristol Bay was still our calling and found ourselves flying to Dillingham at every chance while working in Anchorage. We decided to make the move. we put our belongings on the barge and drove down to Soldotna for Northern Ministry training where we found confirmation that ABM should be our ministry platform.
