Alaska Focus Project:
Supporting Alaska missionaries reaching native Alaskans with the good news of Jesus Christ



Due to the extreme conditions of the more than 225 villages throughout Alaska, missionaries are experiencing intense spiritual warfare, isolation, burn-out, loneliness, depression, frustration, and more. Without an active and empathetic support system, the chances of missionaries lasting in the villages is slim to none—in fact, most last for less than a year. Long-term missionaries are the best and most effective way for the villages to receive and retain an active relationship with Jesus Christ thus making their longevity critical to a statewide gospel transformation.


Our Alaska Mission partners, the Ristow family, are dedicated to strengthening the spiritual, mental and emotional well-being of missionaries, pastors and their families who actively share the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout remote Alaska.

Sunset supports our Alaska Focus Project through your donations to Missions and by sending short term mission teams to serve with the Ristows and at Alaska Christian College.

COVID-19 update Summer 2020

Our Summer mission teams have been cancelled due to health and travel considerations connected to COVID-19.  But our commitments and relationships with our mission partners are not cancelled! 

Sunset’s Alaska Core team has been working with our missionary friends in Alaska and have created Zoom Alaska, a set of zoom events and groups that anyone can participate in.  We’ve created opportunities for you to learn about Alaska, to prepare and share your testimony and to hear others, to sew items for the Alaska Christian College students and to meet our missionaries.


Take a look at the list below and check back throughout the summer as we add more opportunities.


Upcoming Events

Hang tight while we look up scheduled events...

On trips team members make daily blog posts to keep everyone up--to-date with the activity of the group. It is also fun to look back at past trips to see what God has done.
