Frontier Baptist Church hosts ‘Gathering’
Quiet neighborhoods in old Kodiak on Sunday morning meant that the residents were in church – not in bed. After church, they enjoyed a Sunday dinner, often with guests, napped, visited, took a ride and by six o’clock, they grabbed their Bibles and headed back to sanctuary for Sunday evening services. By mid-week the faithful were in church again for refreshment and rejuvenation. Their minds and hearts were challen...

Baptist leads Lutheran worship
What’s a Baptist boy doing in a Lutheran church on Sunday morning? Leading worship, of course.

Seth grew up singing in the praise band of Berean Baptist Church, pastored by his father, the Rev. Dan Minyard. Although there are some striking doctri...

Boston trip eye opener for Kodiak youth

Orthodox mission teams become part of community ‘rhythm’
Orthodox Christian Mission Center church camp leaders in Old Harbor and Ouzinkie learned that it’s good to be flexible. “We didn’t come in with a program,” said Margo Kelley, team leader and one of four returning team members of the six serving Old Harbor. “Our first priority was to follow the rhythm of the village.” Teams in both villages were able to incorporate the visitation of the myrrh-streaming Theotokos (M...

West Virginia horseman brings back cowboy look to Mission
The Kodiak Baptist Mission is getting that cowboy look again. Fences are up.

The man is Johnny Walker, a West Virginia farmer who has a love for horses. He and his wife, ...

Youth program mixes fun and seriousness
It’s risky business, getting into the minds of middle school kids who like things sticky, messy and a little gross at times. The adult leaders who guide them have to be willing to do silly things, sing nutty songs, goof-off on stage and be right amongst the kids in their gooey, edgy, at times, silly activities.
