Our Ministry

But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”

Matthew 19:14  NLT

Our primary focus is in the community of Little Earth of United Tribes.  It is located in South Minneapolis and is home mostly to Native Americans.

For over 21 years, Akina has been promoting the Gospel in south Minneapolis. For the last 10 years, we have worked extensively with the youth.  This includes holding our Akina Kid’s Club, special summer camps, and literacy while providing food, fellowship, and hope.  We have seen children open up, heal, and grow during these amazing times! Consider how you might partner with us!


Akina seeks to provide opportunities for at-risk youth in the Native American community to know Jesus, grow in Christ, and to acquire skills to live out the fullness found in Jesus.

We provide this opportunity through discipleship, literacy, teaching life skills, and church partnerships.


To raise up a generation of Native Americans that will be established in the Gospel and equipped to make a difference for the Kingdom of God.
