MINISTRIES WE SUPPORT

Remote Ministries

Our congregation is the sole source of support for the Philologus School of Preaching. Located in Srikakulam, India, the school provides a 1-year course of instruction to ten locally chosen men from the rural areas of the northern portion of the state of Andhra Pradesh. Historically our congregation supported individual preachers in this area for many years. In 2010 the Philologes School of Preaching was established after it was determined that training local men as preachers of the Word would be more effective. Sadguna Rao is the school's Director and is assisted by his son Uttam. The school is housed in a small 4-room building, which is also where the students reside during their training. Several individuals from our congregation have visited this school and assisted in its efforts in person.

We also support Mike and Vicki Ross who are working in the Campinas Metropolitan area of Brazil. They have been working there full-time since June 2012.

Local Ministries

Locally in Alaska, our congregation supports Carey Samford at the East Homer church of Christ on the Kenai Peninsula and the Seward church of Christ. We also provide support for a student at a brotherhood school of preaching.

The youth of the congregation have also been involved in our Missions and Ministries efforts and have participated in various activities that have included; mission work in Lima, Peru and New York City, Vacation Bible School support for congregations in the Fairbanks area and visitation with other local congregations.

Each year our congregation participates in a state-wide lectureship that involves most of the other church of Christ congregations throughout Alaska. The lectureship, which follows a preacher and elder workshop, is a long weekend of singing, bible study and other activities. Because of Alaska's size, remoteness and its scattering of church of Christ congregations, many families and individuals look forward to this intense period of fellowship to renew friendships and refocus their study of God's Word.

Our congregation also supports broadcasts on a local television channel of the program, In Search of the Lord's Way, which is a television ministry of the Edmond church of Christ in Edmond, Oklahoma. Episodes of this program can also be found at https://www.searchtv.org.

Additionally, members within the congregation individually support preachers and mission works in Mexico and the Philippines.
