BRENDA CRIM - Executive Director
Feet First Missions: "We want your feet in Alaska, 'cause when we get your feet we get your heart; and when we get your heart we get your prayers." -- Brenda Crim
Brenda’s life purpose is best explained in the words of the great Elisabeth Elliot, “I have one desire now-- to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it.”
While a varsity volleyball player at Texas A&M University, Brenda's life profoundly changed course when she met Jesus through the witness of a converted Jewish rabbi. As a student she continued to grow through the ministries of FCA and Baptist Collegiate Ministry. The first time she led someone to Christ, she touched her evangelistic calling and knew she would spend her life
helping people know Christ.
Brenda earned an Mdiv from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. She served in campus ministry from 1983 -2005 on campuses in Texas & Louisiana.
A North American Mission Board missionary since 2005, Brenda began to capture the energy and human resource of short-term teams to Alaska. With limited resources elsewhere, she strategically engages teams to spur revival and restoration in Alaska.
Brenda Crim founded the 501(c)3 organization, Alaska Missions and Retreats, to mobilize teams to the Last Frontier.
Serving as Executive Director, she brings drive, passion, and vision to this organization. Her greatest desire is to become an agent for restoration and revival in the frontier of Alaska. Living near the banks of the Kenai River in Kenai, she wakes up every day to Alaska’s jaw-dropping landscape. Living out her dreams, Brenda often says to herself…
I LOVE my life!
