Alaska Missions meets the needs to break down walls, bringing people from apathy to curiosity about Christ, to find HIM irresistible!
Throughout the year, they have a variety of ministry projects: construction teams, sports clinics, and service projects at Iditarod and Salmon Frenzy. Salmon Frenzy teams host service projects for Alaskan residents camping out on the Cook Inlet beaches at the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers. Thousands of Alaskans are dip-netting sockeye salmon as an annual family event. The ministry approach is gentle servant-hood and need-meeting ... Share Christ in personal and relational ways. They engage the public in this secular forum through servant evangelism. This is "Beach Reach" Alaskan style!

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land. Psalm 68:5-6
Through Bible study, mentoring, job coaching, and a job and computer skills training program, these women will grow in their confidence, computer and job skill levels, and most importantly, in their relationship with Christ. When women fully embrace their position as daughters of the King, the impact reaches their families as well as the greater community.
We have our “For the One Partnership.” We all remember the story of the shepherd who left his flock of sheep to search for the missing lamb. That little lamb was valuable and worth the sacrifice. At CWJC Lindale, we value each student, no matter their background or history. We desire that each one “be the one” that the Great Shepherd searched for and was found. To do that, we must have the resources necessary to sustain the ministry. “For the One” is a giving program made up of businesses, individuals, churches and ministries who pledge to give $100 per month to CWJC to cover operating costs. But first, we want to be available to churches as a resource to send people who may need our services: someone in need of a job or job skills, someone in need of fellowship or community, someone in need of a mentor or for discipleship. Secondly, we are looking for volunteers and their talents: individuals who would like to invest in another as a personal mentor; to provide one meal per semester for our students and staff; those who have special skills for our Heart & Hand Marketplace.

Debra works alongside Romanians who are caring for orphaned and abandoned children and empowers them to disciple and impact each life. She also works with local organizations to support and encourage the least-reached and least-loved.
The Bucharest City Team believes that God is transforming Romania into a Gateway of Joy. They desire that each team member be integrated into a grace-filled community and fully devoted to this vision as God transforms lives day by day through the Gospel. They are working to mobilize the Romanian church into action and ultimately working towards unification among churches to make Bucharest a light in Europe.
I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge —that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19
