Hello, Family and Friends,
Thank you for taking the time to look through and read the material on this website.
I am honored to have moved back to Alaska in 2021 to serve with Victory Ministries in Alaska at Victory Bible Camp.
Victory Ministries is the largest operator of Christian camps in Alaska and experiences the blessing of seeing many youths come to know Christ as their Savior or rededicate their life to Him each summer.
For Victory Ministries in Alaska staff to work as exempt employees (meaning I can work as a salaried staff member instead of being tied to hourly wages/work rules), I need to raise funds to meet salaried staff requirements. To meet this requirement, I need to receive an average of at least $2,300 each month in donations for my support.
If the support I receive is less than the exempt level noted above, I can still serve, but I will not be able to help the ministry at Victory Bible Camp to the fullest. According to this State of Alaska requirement, I currently have 64% of the support needed to meet the salaried level employee requirement, which limits how I can serve Victory Bible Camp. I need to receive an additional $800 average monthly support to achieve exempt status under Alaskan law and to be able to work as a salaried employee.
I understand that the Alaskan laws, as in other states of our country, are designed to protect working people. I appreciate the love and dedication of all of you who have donated to Victory Ministries to enable me to serve here at Victory Bible Camp. I ask that you prayerfully share with others (church, family, friends, co-workers) for donations to help me meet the requirements to serve as a salaried employee, not tied to an hours limitation.
Know that your gifts will be received as grace and used to serve those who need to hear the Gospel (evangelism). Also, that includes strengthening people's relationship with Jesus Christ (discipleship). Please consider making a monthly commitment; this will help me to minister to people year-round on the campground.
Your financial gifts are tax-deductible donations. You can give online through the link, or you can make a check out to Victory Ministries of Alaska.
* If writing a check, please do not write my name. My name is on my donation card (PDF File). The donation card will provide mailing information and the option to support monthly or a one-time gift. The donation card helps the ministry know to whom the financial support is for and where to send it.
After you have donated online or mailed a check, you will receive a receipt from Victory Ministries of Alaska for your donation.
I also need prayer partners to pray for me yearly as I witness and make disciples.
If it is your heart to be a prayer partner, I would be grateful for your prayers and encouragement.
You can give online by clicking the Yellow Button "Donation Link" below, which will take you to my secure donation page on CampWise.
