Last Frontier Ministries, based in Healy, Alaska, is a non-profit organization created out of the vision of two families in 2008 for the purpose of assisting those that are in spiritual, physical and medical need in Alaska’s Interior and to those around the world.
Sam & Chris Kimmel have been actively involved in short-term missions work since 1996. Working with Teen Mania Ministries they have lead short-term missions trips to 5 continents and 13 countries. Together, Sam and Chris have been leading short-term missions trips since 2004. Chris is a stay at home mom raising their 3 children, Miranda, Sammy, and Isaac. Chris plays an active role in both the coordinating and planning of the trips.
Sam is a graduate of both Messiah College and Misericordia University with degrees in Family Studies and Nursing. Sam also is a locally credentialed minister through the Assemblies of God. Sam is also currently working as a registered nurse in Fairbanks and an EMT in Healy when not in the villages.
Sam and Chris both have a strong desire to assist those in need, spiritually and physically. In 2004 they felt a strong pulling to go into full time ministry. Much of their ministry now is focused on the Native Alaskans in Alaskan’s vast interior but still do much work assisting and leading short-term trips around the world.
