Eric and I just got back from the Creative Missions vision trip to Alaska.
I know you’re anxious to hear the dates and more for Creative Missions 2013, but first…
See that guy between Eric and I in the post pic? That’s a fur trapper we met while in Alaska. Just kidding. That’s Adam Legg, church communications extraordinaire and on staff at ChangePoint church in Anchorage. We’re lucky to have him on our side. He’s connected us with a lot of churches to serve during Creative Missions 2013, and will be serving with us. Follow him.
Same picture… See my cast? Yep. I broke my elbow in Alaska. They have this stuff there called ice and it’s not friendly on certain types of shoe soles. Wish it would have been a Moose chase, or something more exciting.
Ever heard the difference between the contributions from chickens and pigs for breakfast? The chicken contributes, but the pig is all in.
Well folks, I’m ALL IN on Creative Missions 2013 to Alaska – Surgical scar and all!
Now the details…
May 18-24, 2013
Anchorage, Alaska and the surrounding areas (including Wasilla – home of Sarah Palin). The overwhelming opinion of folks up there is Alaska is the only state where one city influences the rest of the state. That’s Anchorage. Sounds like it’s where we need to be.
We’ll be serving approximately 15-20 churches and a few parachurch organizations, helping them communicate the Gospel better to the communities they serve through print/web design, video, social media, logos, signage, tech setup, etc. (all sustainable solutions).
We’re giving a week away to good folks including Jay, a church planter who sold everything he had and moved his family 6,000 miles to reach the good folks of Wasilla, Alaska. He’s bi-vocational. He works full time at Lowes Hardware. A trip like this is the least we could do to show appreciation to pastors who make big sacrifices for the Kingdom like him.
You cover airfare and pay the participation fee (rates coming soon – INCLUDING early bird specials). Airfare is not as bad as you think. Start checking on flights into ANC.
We need financial help to cover food, lodging, rental cars, and production materials. These trips couldn’t exist without the help we get from individuals and churches. Could your church be a sponsor?
Stay tuned. There’s good stuff on way!
