I work in this endeavor throughout the Copper River Valley. I serve under Light Shine Ministries as a self-supporting missionary. My youth-minister credentials are held through Hope of the Nations. The beauty of being a part of the body of Christ is that we are never truly alone. I want to give a special shout-out to my team:
My graphic designer: @cgkers. A friend of mine who has a passion for Alaska. She serves on a mission team from Michigan that comes to the Copper River Valley every summer. They help Mt. Drum Lutheran run their Summer VBS program in Copper Center. You can check out their blog here.
I would also like to honor those who help oversee the work that I do. They are a vital part of my support system.
My mentors: Tom Delinger – Director of LightShine, Angelo Sarna – Pastor of Hope of the Nations, John Lehman – Counselor at CrossRoads Counseling Services. These three men of God offer wisdom, guidance, accountability, and pray with me regularly.
If you would like to get involved in what the Lord is doing in Alaska, here are some practical ways you can help even from afar.
