Monika Adcock & Carina Alanson - Women's Ministry
Monika has been volunteering in church activities since she was a kid (and still loves it!). She enjoys being involved in women's ministry because it's a loving environment where women can gather, encourage each other, and draw close to the Father. In her free time Monika likes to cook, read, and spend time with her handsome hubby (Carder) and adorable, mostly well-behaved children.
Carina is a former professional counselor turned writer and teacher. She is passionate about helping women grow in their relationship with God, particularly in the areas of purpose, creativity, and enjoying everyday life. Besides ministering to women, some of her favorite things include scenic drives with her husband, Paul, nature walks, and reading by the fire.
Paul Alanson - Men's Ministry
Paul was born and raised in Fairbanks and is married to his wonderful wife Carina. As part of a family that goes back 5 generations in Alaska, he enjoys all things adventure and outdoors. He also enjoys playing the guitar. Paul knows firsthand from his upbringing and through key men in his adult life how significant it is for men to be part of a community of men, calling them to live with courage. Paul endeavors to live as a warrior and a beloved son, and to help others do the same.
