HSM@ABT is the High School Ministry of Anchorage Baptist Temple. Our desire is to see High School students come to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and continue to grow in their relationship with Him. HSM@ABT exists to help students become exposed to, experience, and express Christ, and His Kingdom. We hope that You will come check us out! HSM@ABT is led by Wes Arnes.

Pastor Wes was born and raised right here in Anchorage, Alaska.  Wes and his wife, Taylor, just recently moved back from Bellingham, Washington, where Taylor finished up her Bachelor’s degree at Western Washington University.  Through the years, Wes has done oil supply work, commercial fishing, and most recently worked in a poultry feed mill.  Pastor Wes loves to play basketball and do sport shooting for recreation.  If Wes could be an animal he would choose to be a flying lemur.  His favorite place to vacation is with his wife at Manhattan Beach, California. Wes’ favorite drink is a Coke and Cherry mixed Slurpee.

I am aware that parenting a teenager can be a scary endeavor and that’s why I want you as a parent to know that we are here to help.  We as a student ministry want to come alongside you and assist you in the raising of your children. Please don’t hesitate to call and ask any questions that you may have. Thanks for the opportunity to minister to your teens.  – Pastor Wes
