PRESBYTERY OF YUKON MISSION WORK INCLUDING:
 
PLUME is Presbyterians and Lutherans United with Methodists and Episcopalians to do ministry in areas where one denomination can’t do it alone. Emphasis currently is in the valley/rail belt. Lay pastor training is helps to train lay leaders, especially native leaders for native churches. Support for village churches takes the form of assistance with the extremely high costs of heating fuel, emergency maintenance issues, sharing the cost of insurance, and providing occasional visits to villages without Teaching Elders (ordained ministers).
 
Bingle Camp is the Presbytery’s camp in the interior providing Christian camping experiences for youth both within and outside of the Presbyterian denomination.
 
Gambell Presbyterian Church We are building a new church home for the people of Gambell on St. Lawrence Island through a partnership of the existing local congregation, the Yukon Presbytery, volunteer leaders from First Presbyterian Church Anchorage and other member churches. Construction of the foundation and outer structure began in Summer 2014 with continued work through the Summers of 2015 and 2016, including volunteer teams from the lower 48.
