Every Nation United Methodist Church is a new church start in Anchorage, Alaska. Bishop Elaine Stanovsky appointed the Rev. Murray Crookes to lead the ministry in August 2018. Crooks says he has engaged in active listening within the community and he is working on building partnerships with neighbors to create a ministry that serves the people in the area. Right now, the ministry offers a weekly free meal which is open to all people. Crookes and his family attend local events and engage in Bible study and prayer with local Native Alaskans. He has shared tribal hymns and has even started learning Inupiaq songs. Murray plans to launch a Sunday morning worship in Spring 2019. Crookes formally served as pastor of the North Oklahoma City Fellowship in Oklahoma City.
