Our Missionaries

Ryan Boudreau – African Inland Missions (AIM)

Ryan BI was born and raised on Kodiak Island in a Christian home. It was in sixth grade during a school chapel service that I began to understand what it meant to follow Jesus Christ, and I placed my trust in Him for the first time. This began a life-long relationship in which the Lord continues teaching me to love His word and grow closer to Him through life’s ups and downs. One particular experience was a mission trip to Mozambique/Southern Africa at age 14. It was here that I committed to full-time Christian ministry, presumably overseas. As the years went by, missions was held as the goal around which my every decision revolved. You can email Ryan here: ryan.boudreau@aimint.org. You can read more about Ryan's ministry here: AIM

Jon and MaryAnna Casey – SEND North

casey-jon-maryanna-2015_1422554719_350xautoWhile attending Alaska Bible College from 2002-2006, we became active in praying for the villages in Alaska and were made aware of many of the needs off the road system. We heard of the drugs, alcohol and suicide, and especially noticed the high number of villages with no Christian families living in the communities. It was through this time that our hearts were drawn towards western Alaska. You can read about their ministry here. You can email the Caseys here: jon_m_casey@hotmail.com

Ted and Marilyn Franke – Arctic Barnabas

Ted marilynWhile in the ministry of Christian Camping for nearly 28 years, Ted and Marilyn were blessed with connections with ministry leaders all over Alaska. Now for them to join with Alaska Mission Connection (a special project under the umbrella of Arctic Barnabas) seems like a natural progression to their past ministry experience. The Alaska Mission Connection is an organization attempting to facilitate collaborations among ministries working around Alaska as its motto states, "Jesus followers united in mission." The Frankes have been encouraged as almost daily they see God uniting Alaska's ministry leaders, and building connections to effectively evangelize and disciple all of Alaska's people.
