"We are with Arctic Barnabas Ministries in Alaska. Our family moved here in 2015 from NC, where we had been members at Heritage Fellowship for 5 years. ABM exists to 'Strengthen and encourage bush pastors and missionaries to continue the reach of the Gospel in remote Alaska.' In that vein, our primary role is pastoral care. Jeffrey also plays roles in IT, logistics, and aircraft maintenance. Bethany, aside from being full-time mommy, takes part in planning and hosting women’s retreats and does her part in pastoral care (with pastor's wives) as God allows. As individuals and as a family we have taken opportunities to visit families that live in remote Alaskan villages. There are new aspects of ABM's ministry on the horizon, such as preparing new bush ministry families for life in AK, which excite us!"
