Here is a message from team leader, Steve Hoey (pictured here with his wife Renee):

Do you feel the Lord calling you to serve Him this summer? Have you aways wanted to go on a mission trip but not sure if you want to go to a foreign country? Do you have skills in building, painting, cleaning or any other interests that you would like to use to build the Kingdom of Christ? Why don’t you consider joining us in Gulkana this year.

2017 will be our fifth year working with the people of Gulkana. During the last five years we have been able to build true friendships by returning again and again to help the Church and Village Council achieve some goals that they may not have attempted had the Lord not directed us there. We feel truly blessed to be a part of what God is doing. CLICK HERE to read more on Gulkana Village.

This year, it is our plan to complete the final renovations on the teen center. Once completed, the teen center building will be re purposed to house a guest quarters, workout room, and library/tutoring center for the children of the village. We are very thankful that our team is filled!

If you want to be part of this team, please complete this Registration Form with a $40 registration fee.  This fee covers the cost of an embroidered Carhartt team shirt and locks you in as a team member. Then you will be able to begin the process of raising the $1750 for this trip. Once you are contacted by your team leader and your place is secured on this team, you can begin raising financial support by sending out support letters to your family and church friends. Simply have them send missionary support to us for your trip costs. Your team leader will help you develop your support letter and include two important dates for your supporters to note. The first financial deadline for half your support ($875) is due on March 31, 2017. This first deadline is very important to keep because it will enables us to purchase your airline tickets. Once airline tickets are purchased, there is no backing out of the team. The second deadline for your entire amount is due May 12, 2017. Please note that these deadlines are strictly enforced. Not keeping them will cause us to ask you to step down from this team and consider another future team. Please take time to review our “Policies” page for more information.

The earlier you register the sooner you can start raising your financial support. We encourage you to get this out of the way early so you can enjoy the experience without any distractions. You will be so glad you did!
