Alaska Mission Trips

Known as the last frontier, Alaska boasts breathtaking landscapes, diverse people groups, and a mission field like no other. Alaska mission trips combine the element of adventure with the opportunity to encourage ministry leaders who are serving in some of the most difficult places in our nation.

Approximately 736,000 people call Alaska their home, sparsely populating an area twice the size of Texas. Approximately half the population lives in the cities of Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau. The remaining half live across vast landscapes, many of which are not reachable by the road system. Planes, boats, ATVs, and snow machines are common modes of transportation for the many who live in these rural regions of Alaska.

Despite Alaska’s rugged beauty, mystery, and alluring fishing tourism during the long summer days, Alaska is not without great need. Poverty, homelessness, teenage suicide, seasonal affective disorder, drugs, and alcoholism plague every region of the state. The long winters and many hours of darkness take a great toll on the Alaskan people and their mental/emotional health.

On your Alaska mission trip, your team will have the opportunity to partner alongside local churches, as well as colleges, nonprofits, and Christian camps. These established ministries are targeting the struggles listed above and working together to make a much-needed difference.

The summer season, however short, yields long hours of daylight - hours spent hustling to treat building exteriors, paint, build, maintain, and accomplish whatever can only be done during the warmer days. Much help is needed, and our ministry connections have opened their arms wide to visiting mission teams who are ready to work hard and share the Gospel. Alongside service projects, many other ministries are in need of volunteers. Alaska mission trip teams will have the opportunity to host sports camps, park ministry, VBS, home visits, prayer walks, construction projects, and more.

Come experience the last frontier. The Church is active and ready for your partnership!

Year-Round Ministry

PPM's ministry is an ongoing effort to build up, encourage, and assist the local Church 365 days a year. Nearly every week of every year, we have a team serving short-term somewhere in the world. Our partner pastors and ministry leaders receive ministry support, training, and encouragement when mission teams aren't on the ground through our partner support program.
