The Leadership Team and the Native Ministries Committee of Yukon Presbytery have extended a summons to all who feel led to join in intercessory prayer for the Native Presbyterian Churches in the North Slope and on St. Lawrence Island.
These village churches are struggling and are in need of help. Most of them, if not all, are without pastors and are, to some extent, being kept afloat by volunteer work by the session members and/or by an unpaid lay pastor.
The Native Ministry, in one of their meetings, have decided to begin a concerted, focused prayer for these churches in an effort to discern how to work with the Holy Spirit for Kingdom solutions and strategies for these congregations. In order to do this we need your help to find and provide committed folks who feel called to this type of ministry. Prayer is the power behind the scenes and is vitally important if we want to provide meaningful support and encouragement to our brothers and sisters in these remote places. They play a very important role in the Kingdom of God.
Please join in the effort to find divine solutions to this current state of our village churches. Names of committed folks who are willing to participate should be given to Executive Presbyter Curt Karns or to Native Ministries Team Leader Lucy Apatiki via the Presbytery Office.
