Missions - Bylsma

Dan and Geraldine Bylsma 

Dan and Geraldine Bylsma serve with Awana Clubs International as the Awana Missionaries for the state of Alaska and have been supported by Scenic Park Bible Church since 1997. After serving with previous Awana missionaries on their advisory board, Dan and Geraldine were called to become the Awana Missionaries for Alaska in October 1991.

Dan and Geraldine met in Anchorage and were married in 1979. They have four children: Jillian (1983) who is married to Zach Jacobson; Rachel (1985); Zach (1989) who is married to Amanda; and Sarah (1996).

The prayer statement of Awana is that all children and youth throughout the world will come to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. As Awana Missionaries, the Bylsmas present Awana to churches as a tool to use for their children and youth ministries, both for outreach and for discipling their children and youth. They also train leaders through things such as the Awana Ministry Annual Conference, Getting Started Training sessions, and LEAD. They visit clubs during the Awana club year to speak to the children and youth and to evaluate individual clubs, helping the leadership to use Awana effectively in their churches. The Bylsmas spend time with pastors, commanders, leaders, and other church leaders to serve them and build relationships.

Dan and Geraldine have a local Ministry Team which serves with them. The Ministry Team helps them in all aspects of the ministry, both in training and in the events.

Their prayer is that all children and youth throughout Alaska will come to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Pray for the Bylsmas as they prepare for the Awana Ministry Annual Conference each fall and as they schedule training sessions during the summer for new Awana churches. Pray for the Lord to provide one couple to serve on the Ministry Team in the Interior Alaska area and for two couples to serve in the Anchorage area. Also pray for their safety as they travel around Alaska, and for the finances needed to help cover the high cost of travel around the state.
