Reaching the people of the Alaska-Yukon district is just as exciting as it is challenging. The highly postmodern mindset in the Far North provides the perfect opportunity for reaching people who are seeking authentic truth and true spirituality. This climate of searching hearts and minds is an open door for Biblical truth and the undeniable, unexplainable power of the God. The challenge lies in the enormous size of the district; 959,734 square miles, with many communities only accessible by boat or plane.
It is this blend of opportunity and challenge that the Alaska-Yukon district is expanding its reach through relevant ministries, meeting today's needs with ancient, timeless truth.
Connecting with the amazing youth of the north, the AKYT district coordinates seasonal events in each region of the state. In addition, the Winter Youth Retreat and the Summer Youth Camp offer an opportunity for all district youth to join together for an incredible time of relevant teaching, spiritual explosion, and outrageous fun.

It was once said that it takes an extraordinary woman to live in the North. This may be why the district is filled with amazing women of all ages and backgrounds. To connect with these women, the Womenís Ministry offers a Womenís Retreat every year.
