About Kodiak Baptist Mission

Located in Kodiak, Alaska, KBM believes that the beauty surrounding us is a gift from God, and the best way to use it is to share it with our community and beyond. We offer multiple programs for both children and adults to connect with nature, as well as experience activities from horseback riding to discussions of the Bible. We foster growth in the young people we serve, and we are proud to commit our time and energy to them.

Our Mission

Drawing upon our history and our consistent faith in Jesus Christ, Kodiak Baptist Mission seeks to be an example for our community and the world in the way that we love our neighbors through a holistic approach to education, as well as the dedication of time and resources to strengthen families.

Our History

From 1893 when we were still Kodiak Baptist Orphanage to today, Kodiak Baptist Mission has pioneered approaches to holistic education and domestic, rural missions right here in Kodiak. Through devastating fires and tightening state mandates, we have stayed firm in our faith and love of God.

Today, we have the best summer camps and after school programs in Kodiak, Alaska—all on 30 acres of our own beautiful land. Our programs enable children to make positive choices and decisions, keep them safe and their lives respectable, establish a spiritual foundation in their lives, and assist families to live, work, and grow together in Christ.
