  • joshUA seely | NAMB planter

    Josh and his wife Katherine have lived in Alaska since 2012 and have two children. He currently serves at First Baptist Church as the College-Young Adult Bible Study leader. He is endorsed by the North American Mission Board (NAMB) and is the Pastor of Restoration Church in Anchorage where he is following his calling of reaching new people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He loves the mission of Restoration Church, as they are seeing people who would not likely come into a more "traditional" church setting be baptized and discipled. He is passionate about seeing the change the Holy Spirit makes in peoples lives.  In his own words, he is "excited to see God separate the wheat from the chaff (Luke 3:17) and restore FBC Anchorage into a lean, mean, soul winning machine."
