Program Overview

The GLCC M.A.P. is designed to give individuals firsthand ministry experience and provide an opportunity for a real-world apprenticeship, servant leadership, nonprofit business training, and life skills development.

Interns will gain proficiency by serving and working with the leadership team, board, and various church groups to make an impact and spread the gospel throughout our community. 

GLCC is uniquely positioned to provide this type of experience through our house church model and the Gateway To The Arctic agricultural retreat facility. Gateway to the Arctic Camp is a hub for the community. It is 100 acres that consist of a farm, a lodge, cabins, trails, and a view of the largest mountain in the US. The Camp was founded in 2013 by Anchorage’s Great Land Christian Church and has continued to grow ever since. We host day and week-long summer camps for the local community, youth, and adults with special abilities. We teach construction, agriculture, Alaska bushcraft, sustainability, and much more. We will incorporate and explore each intern’s unique gift set and apply those gifts to serve in the best place according to our various activities in our GLCC and G2A programs.
