Alaska Mission For Christ 


Founded in 2010, Lutherans in Africa (LIA) equips Africans to be teachers of the saving faith in Christ Jesus. This is done through training pastors, evangelists, deaconesses, and Sunday school teachers in the pure doctrine and its instruction, liturgy, and hymnody and through translating key doctrinal resources into African languages. Based in Nairobi, Kenya, LIA is under the directorship of Rev. James E. May Jr., a graduate from Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana. A former missionary in French West Africa, he is married to Tiina May and has six children: Maggie, Tristan, Sarai, Sofia, Jonas, and Matthew.






Alaska Mission for Christ is a nonprofit Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod ministry established to proclaim and practice the love of Jesus in Alaska. Since we believe every Christian is part of the body of Christ, we encourage and equip volunteers to be involved in sharing the Gospel through various Servant Event opportunities.
AMC also partners with the LCMS congregations of Alaska to identify needs, build relationships, and witness throughout the state. Currently, four of Alaska's 13 LCMS congregations have their roots in the ministry of Alaska Mission for Christ.
Please join us as we work to make sure that every person in Alaska has the opportunity to know the saving love of Jesus!
