Job Description:
Do you long to live and work in a place where you can be surrounded by the beauty of God’s creation while serving God and families in a vibrant and diverse Christian community? If so, Alaska is waiting for you!

We love Alaska because God loves Alaska and displays his handiwork here in big ways. In the summer, we enjoy constant daylight, luscious greens, perfect outdoor temperatures and gorgeous mountains, lakes and streams.  In the winter, we enjoy the magical beauty of ice crystals on the trees and the reds and blues of the aurora borealis in the night sky, - indeed the heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork (Psalm 19) here in interior Alaska.  There are ample opportunities for hiking, fishing, climbing, skiing, biking, and more.  Alaskans love to enjoy all that God has created for us.
Our church is located in downtown Fairbanks, Alaska.  We have a healthy, growing congregation of families with young children.  We have a passion to serve those who are broken and in need of God's love. We have a full time pastor, associate pastor, youth minister, and children's minister on staff.  We are looking to hire someone who is a mature Christian, who is a leader, but also a team player, who is organized, dedicated, and a good communicator.  Our competitive package includes fully funded health insurance for a family, retirement program, paid study leave, flex time and vacation time.
