Kake

Kake is an absolutely amazing, beautiful place that God has created. Kake is located on the northwest corner of Kupreanof Island, a little more than 100 miles south of Juneau, in Southeast Alaska. The population of Kake is approximately 550 to 575 people, made up primarily of Tlingit First Nation's people. There are a couple of other churches in Kake, and yet our little village remains largely unchurched. There is so much of a need for various ministries here that I could be full time in this ministry here and still not have enough time to do everything I want here. Dependency programs, grief counseling, literacy programs, and much more. I'm starting some of that anyway. Any resources I could get to help support such programs would be a great help. Our church building is an old restaurant and Inn that went out of business in 2016, and hadn't been used since then until we took possession of it this past July. I stepped out on faith, knowing in my heart that this was God's plan, and having every belief that some way, somehow, God will supply the needs. I am attaching a few pictures of our church and our village for your enjoyment. Our building rental is $1,000 per month and our utilities run between about $500-900 depending on the harshness of the weather
