Overview

Bring your long-johns and join Alaska Missions in our thirteenth year at the Iditarod finish line. Our task is twofold: reach the Native culture and the musher sub-culture of Alaska. You will cheer on mushers crossing the finish line, permeate the volunteer force of the Iditarod. We host the concession stand at the Lonnie O'Connor Iditarod Basketball Classic, do prayer walks, minister to village elders and host a kid's club. The ministry opportunities are endless. 

During week two in Nome, there is an added bonus of serving with Alaska Missions at the Iditarod Finish. We help host the Mushers’ Banquet, serving  over  800  persons  and  aid  the  Iditarod  staff  in  the  culminating  activities  and  celebrations  of  this  international  event.
