Jim and Linda are Assemblies of God U.S. Missionaries, ministering in Alaska since 1969. During those years they have ministered to the Athabascan Indians, the Yupik Eskimo, and the Inupiat Eskimo.

After initially spending several years with the Athabascan Indians of the interior village of Minto, they moved to Alaska's western coast where they built a church in the Yupik Eskimo village of Kotlik on the mouth of the Yukon Delta. Following seven years of ministry in Kotlik, they pioneered a new work in Kotzebue, an Inupiat village located 30 miles above the Arctic Circle. Here they built a parsonage in 1979 where church services where held until the congregation was able to build a church in 1982.

During this time, Jim piloted his own plane to reach the 12 villages and towns in the Western Section of Alaska where there were Assemblies of God missions that he served as Presbyter. While ministering in Alaska, Jim and Linda have lived and worked under many and varied circumstances. Their years in Minto and Kotlik were spent without village electricity or running water. Their Alaskan experience includes a broad range of ministry to most of Alaska's Native people groups.
