The goal: to love people and share the Gospel by walking alongside those in need and humbly sharing that we are all in need of the forgiving grace our Creator provides.
Orginally from central Michigan, Nathan and Sarah’s lives first crossed paths on a mission trip in college performing disaster relief work after Hurrican Katrina struck the gulf coast.
Shortly thereafter, Nathan used his fire science degree while enlisted in the Air Force while Sarah completed her undergraduate studies at Concordia Unversity Ann Arbor, followed by a graduate degree in Teacher Leadership.
Sarah’s background in education has been used teaching in public and private schools and, more currently, homeschooling their four children. Additionally, she has formal training as a bereavement counselor.
Nathan’s early background in ministry included active participation in Lutheran Youth Fellowship and Lutheran Student Fellowship. He uses his love of music to break down barriers and help connect people to worship. His military experience includes structuring and managing programs which will be a huge asset as he and Sarah create and put into motion their mission plan for reaching Alaska Natives across the large, hard-to-travel state.
Bolstered by their love for people and sharing the Gospel, Nathan and Sarah approach ministry by walking alongside those in need, humbly sharing that we are all in need of the forgiving grace our Creator provides.
Through mentorship, creating networks, and walking alongside others, the Milans will provide support to the Native peoples in Fairbanks and the remote villages of Alaska.
