Meet The Team
Jeff & Holly Bartlett
We have been so blessed in our journey with Jesus Christ. Growing up in a Pentecostal church on the east coast of Canada, I never would have imagined the journey God would take me on. Step by step God gently led me to service in our local church and then on to Christian Life College where I was able to advance in music and theology. It was at CLC where I met my wonderful wife who is my dearest friend and greatest support. Holly and I have shared a passion for the work of the Lord and have been honored, over the past 25+ years, to serve churches in Nova Scotia, Texas, California, Georgia, and several in the great state of Alaska.
In the fall of 2017, God began calling us to start a church in North Pole, AK. We were very content and fulfilled in ministry while assisting Pastor Glover in Sterling, AK but God kept calling. With the support and guidance of our leadership, we attended Launch Church Planting Solutions and fell in love with God’s plan for us. We are so thankful for the opportunity to serve and we are looking forward to the great things that God has in store for North Pole and the surrounding area.
Our heartbeat is to see lives changed by the power of God's Spirit.
God wants you to Be THE Light!
Jordan & Kristin Ikerd
Kristin and I were blessed to be raised by missionary families that taught us to love Jesus Christ and gave us a heart to share His love with others. I spent time in Namibia, Africa, as a child before moving to Alaska at the age of nine. Over the next sixteen years I came to love Alaska and developed a burden for the people of Alaska. Kristin spent much of her childhood in Suriname, South America. She attended Texas Bible College where she studied music.
I graduated with my nursing degree in 2012 and began working in Soldotna, Alaska. In 2014 I felt God leading me to attend Texas Bible College and made the move to Lufkin, Texas. It was there my wife and I were married in 2015.
While in Texas, Kristin and I were blessed to serve at our local church in multiple capacities. In the summer of 2018 we made a trip to Alaska and it was during that time we met with Jeff and Holly Bartlett about being a part of the NLCC team. God was calling us to join them in North Pole, Alaska.
We have since made the move from Texas. I am enjoying being back home in the Great Land. We are excited to see what God will do in the days to come in the city of North Pole.
I was born and raised in Alaska. My whole life has revolved around serving God. I have been blessed to be a part of many Alaska/Yukon Youth Mission trips across the state as well as being the drummer for many district retreats and for the Alaska/Yukon Camp Mass Choir.
As God called me into ministry I went to Launch - Church Planting Solutions in 2018 and in 2019 I moved to North Pole, AK to join my parents as part of the NLCC Launch team.
