Gulkana Village – 2020

September 4-13, 2020  

Steve Hoey (pictured with his wife, Renee) is the team leader for this team. You can email Steve at:

2020 will be our 8thyear of working with our friends in Gulkana Village.  We have been honored to be a part of many different projects in the village over the years.  This year we are looking for 4-6 men and women to help in the Village.  Projects have yet to be determined but we will update this page as we get information.

We are also looking for someone who loves to cook to help feed our team breakfast and dinner each day.  Gulkana Village provides lunch for us on the days we work so lunches at the cabin will be very minimal.  This position also allows you to help the ladies at the Gulkana Hall prepare lunch each day that we work.

This team will be leaving Pennsylvania on Thursday the 18thand returning to Pa on Sunday the 28th.


The cost for any of LightShine’s trips  is $1850 plus a $40 one time registration fee (if you have never served on a LightShine team before).  Cost of trip covers airfare, food, transportation and administration expenses.  You even get a team shirt included in the registration fee!!!  Where else can you get that kind of a deal going to Alaska???   Please click below to continue the registration process.

If you want to be part of this team, please complete this Registration Form with a $40 registration fee.

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 April 10, 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!
