Globe Creek Camp is a Christian camping ministry one hour north of Fairbanks. This remote area deep in the interior of Alaska is off the grid located in beautiful Globe Creek Valley in the White Mountain range.
This will be the 11th year that LightShine Ministries will be serving this camp. Projects in past years have been building log cabins to house staff and campers, building additions to the main Lodge to house utilities, installing a generator to power the camp, maintenance work on the nearly 1000’ zip line, general carpentry and masonry on buildings around the camp; cutting, splitting and stacking fire wood; debris and brush clean up and even blazing a hiking trail for camp ministry in the mountains surrounding the camp!
In 2020, we will be building another log cabin for staff housing as well as other general maintenance around the camp. We are looking for 6-8 team team members. Log structures require constant maintenance such as sanding, grinding and oiling. We will also be doing brush cleanup, firewood cutting, splitting and stacking. Carpentry skills are a great asset but if you are healthy, willing to work and desire to be a part of a team that works and ministers together, we can use you!
If you have any interest or questions please email me at email@example.com or call me at (717) 418-6089.

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 $1850 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 ($925) is due on May 8, 2020.
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 22, 2020. 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!
