Marc & Angela Lantz

We are Marc and Angela Lantz, and we are thrilled to be called to serve with Covenant Youth of Alaska (CYAK), serving youth and young adults across the largest US state. Marc was born and raised in Pennsylvania, while Angela spent her childhood in Alberta, Canada. After meeting at a youth ministry internship, we have spent the last 11 years serving in youth ministry together. Nine of those years were in Angela’s home church in Breton, AB. Last year, we were asked to direct the Acts29 school of discipleship that was hosted by the Covenant churches of Alaska, as well as to stay and serve with CYAK. We said ‘yes’ to both, and now we’re raising support to return long-term.

We really appreciate the work CYAK does across the state and the partners they share across the rest of the continent. The Covenant church began its work over 125 years ago in the remote coastal villages where many Native Alaskan people continue to live productive lives. The gospel has taken root in their culture yet there are great ministry needs, especially among youth and young adults. Our heart is to encourage and assist the discipleship and growth of young Alaskans. Overseeing events is a key portion of how we hope to promote spiritual growth. We want more Alaskans to lead like Jesus both at home as well as in a world that needs the hope of Christ.

We are discovering the value of partnership, and the apostle Paul’s words resonate with us: In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in your will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Phil. 1:4-6 NIV).
