serving in the community

There are many opportunities to share God's love with the Anchorage community. Here are a few of those we support:

Financial Peace University

America is seeing wave of people in a financial hole because they're in debt up to their armpits, with no hope of help. The Journey offers classes and works alongside people in the community to help them out of debt and change how they view personal finance. Using Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University, we work to give people practical tools for life. Over 650,000 families have completed FPU and on average, they pay off $5,300 in debt and save $2,700 in just 13 weeks.

Contact us if you would be interested in attending or hosting a Financial Peace University course.

Bean’s Cafe

Our desire is that Anchorage’s hungry and homeless are fed. Since 1979, they have provided hot nutritious meals, a safe day shelter, and guidance to health and human service programs. It targets the poorest people in Anchorage; the street people, the homeless, the chronically mentally ill, and the needy elderly. They also serve families in temporary crisis, the seasonally unemployed, and assist various local agencies in the feeding of children.

Kid's Kitchen

Since 1996, Elgin Jones feeds hundreds of kids each week night in the Fairview Recreation Center. After school, many of the neighborhood kids sit down for a healthy meal cooked by a handful of volunteers and Jones himself. Currently, Jones is looking for people to help serve food, and offer tutoring and life-skills mentoring for these children.

AWAIC

Since 1977, Abused Women's Aid in Crisis (AWAIC) has worked to create a violence-free Anchorage. Each year they provide roughly 16,000 safe-nights to women and children, 1,500 hours of group and individual advocacy to non-residential clients, and 140 community education presentations to over 5,000 participants.
