In the bush, there are over 150 villages with populations of less than 1,000. Most of these villages are not on the road system and do not have a gospel-centered church. Discipleship opportunities are often non-existent or limited at best. While churches abound in the urban regions in Alaska, most have been unable to contextualize the gospel enough to incorporate cross-cultural diversity. Many in these villages have yet to hear God’s message communicated in ways that make sense to them.
Anchorage, Fairbanks and the rapidly expanding Mat-Su Valley are home to a growing number of Alaska Natives. The “urban villages” present incredible opportunities to make a difference among ethnic groups, impacting the environment of even the largest urban centers. Will you help us to reach the least-reached one heart at a time?
