Mission Focus | Alaska

Missionaries | Jae & Carole


Jae and Carole McKee serve Aleutian Island communities in Alaska. Jae is the director of missions and church planting for the Alaska Baptist Resource Network in Anchorage. As state missionaries, he and Carole travel from Anchorage and other hub locations to villages and communities only accessible by plane or boat.

One community the McKees work in is Cold Bay, the last community on the Alaska Peninsula before the Aleutian Islands begin. The McKees are excited about what God is doing in Cold Bay. The community is growing to accept the church and baptisms are taking place. Local leadership is being developed for long-term sustainability. Jae and Carole are working to strengthen the church and lead members to plant other churches in neighboring communities.
