South Anchorage Assembly of God History
In July of 1967, a group of people on the south end of Anchorage along with Rev. William Cummins purchased a small church building on the corner of Old Seward Highway and DeArmoun Road with a desire to establish an Assemblies of God Congregation in South Anchorage. They named the new congregation Sunset Hills Assembly of God.
Eventually they sold their building and began meeting in Ocean View Elementary School for a time.
In 1981, Rev. Eugene Wooten became the new pastor and a six acre parcel was purchased on the Northeast corner of Huffman and the New Seward Highway for a building site (our current location). While going through the process of developing and becoming established on a new piece of property, the purpose of reaching out to the needs and people of South Anchorage continued through many ministries. One of these ministries was the launching of a childcare program which was given the name Kings Kids Child Care (this was later developed into Kings Kids Child Care and Preschool).
Today, our goal is still to reach out to the needs and people of Anchorage with the love of Jesus and the news of what He has done for them. Because of this pursuit, we continue to be involved in multiple ministries and outreaches, and we always seek to equip people to step into the calling which God has placed on their lives.
If you are looking for a church home, or a place to grow in your relationship with God and others, we would love to have you visit us. Our passion is to see as many people as possible come to know Jesus as their Savior and to help them grow in their relationship with Him. To learn more about us, click here.
