Eaglecrest Alaska Missions

Sutton, Alaska

Nestled along the winding Matanuska River, Eaglecrest Alaska Missions is a ministry fueled by a love for the Lord and for the people nearby. Amid the majesty and grandeur of the Alaskan mountains lies the community of Sutton. Once a flourishing gold town, today its people struggle to make ends meet. 

Come with your team and experience not only the awe-inspiring beauty of Alaska, but the wonder that comes from helping your neighbor experience renewal and the love of Jesus Christ! Whether you swing a hammer for repairs, swing a paddle on the river, or swing a child at VBS, you’ll help bring hope back to Sutton. Eaglecrest Alaska Missions is a unique mix of intense experiences designed to equip and empower individuals to become Christ-centered leaders in their world. It will change your life forever. Are you ready?

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. —Colossians 3:23, NIV
