Globe Creek Bible Camp 2024

July 26 – August 4

This be our 16th year helping build this vital Bible camp in the Fairbanks region of Alaska. This camp is “off grid” meaning there is no power lines (no electricity available). Years ago, LightShine was able to help install a generator there and the camp is now a fully functioning tool for reaching out to children and youth. But there are always new projects that need to be completed. That is why we need you to join us this year!  What would it be like to not be able to use your cell phone for a week? Believe us – you can do it. It’s actually a great experience to be free from it while you work in pristine beauty for the Lord.

Many kids have spent time at Globe Creek Camp – learning about Jesus Christ and having a lot of fun in the process. But this is not your typical camp (just down the road). It’s 37 miles north of Fairbanks on the road that goes to Prudhoe Bay where the Alaska Pipeline starts. It’s a rugged part of the state where you will experience a raw and beautiful land.

What will this team be doing?

We will be finishing a bathroom that was started last year and framing a second bathroom. If anyone is good at installing shingles on a roof, you are needed on this team. We are also going to building a retainer wall and doing some mason/concrete work. There are some steps to build near the bridge going across the creek and general maintenance all around this camp. This will be a great week to help this camp with these projects in a beautiful wilderness environment.

The cost of this trip is $1975.

Our trip cost covers everything you need once you leave your home until you return. The total is determined by analyzing the cost of team assignments from previous years (things like your airline ticket, ground transportation, three meals a day, and many administrative fees that LightShine incurs).

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 a LightShine Alaska team shirt and locks you in as a team member. 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 ($987.50) is due on June 14, 2024. 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 June 28, 2024. 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.

Your team leader will be Randy Sauder and you call him (717) 572-0972 or email him at: 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! A side benefit on this trip is seeing God’s beautiful creation including mountains, moose and maybe even the northern lights. This will be a life changing experience for you and will give you a new perspective on helping those who are really in need!

And let the [gracious] favor of the Lord our God be on us;
Confirm for us the work of our hands—
Yes, confirm the work of our hands.
Psalm 90:17 – Amplified Bible
