Jeremy Faga was a volunteer with Alaska Mission for Christ (“AMC”) from 1998 to 2003 in the vicinity around Tok, Alaska, a remote area about 175 miles east of Fairbanks.
This 27-year old man was a constant witness to his Lord and had a circle of influence far greater than most people his age. In the five years that he worked as a lay minister for AMC, Jeremy touched countless lives in Tok, Tanacross, Northway, Tetlin, Dot Lake, Mentasta, Slana and beyond.
The first years of his ministry were supported financially by donors in the Lower 48. The last three years, he was employed as a music teacher at the Tok public school and shared his love for music by giving lessons to others. His conversation and life were a constant witness to his faith in Christ, a faith he shared naturally with those around him.
Tragically, Jeremy was killed in an automobile accident with a moose the day before Easter, 2003. We believe that his legacy of loving people in service to Jesus should not be forgotten. Therefore, AMC established and administers the Jeremy Faga Missionary Support Fund. This fund supports the continuation of ministry efforts throughout the Upper Tanana River region of the state.
