BRENDA CRIM - Executive Director
Feet First Missions:
ccBrenda’s life purpose is best explained in the words of the great Elizabeth 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, her 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. On a mission trip to Jamaica, she found depth of purpose when she led a young girl to Christ. At that moment she knew she would spend her life helping people know Christ.
Brenda graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, obtaining a Master of Divinity. She served in campus ministry from 1983 -2011 on campuses in Texas, Louisiana and Alaska. As a NAMB missionary, Brenda started hosting mission teams to Alaska, and founded the non-profit organization, Alaska Missions and Retreats, to mobilize teams to the Last Frontier. Serving as Executive Director, Brenda brings drive, passion and vision to this organization. Her greatest desire to become an agent for restoration and revival in 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!
