As coordinator of Alaska Ministries for American Baptist Home Mission Societies, Dr. Alonzo B. Patterson Jr. oversees mission development and general administration in Alaska. He serves as a support pastor to pastors and works to develop and train new leadership for mission and ministry.
“Inclusive of evangelism and church planting, we have to think differently in Alaska,” Patterson says. “We are working on a small cell group model that would allow several families to worship together regularly without traveling long distances.”
Alaska remains an important mission field for American Baptists, Patterson maintains.
“We welcome the support of churches and individuals,” he says. “Alaska Ministries is committed to hosting missionaries and mission tour groups.”
