Fort Yukon is located about 150 miles North East of Fairbanks.
Travel to Fort Yukon involves either a small plane or a river boat. By plane, it's an hour long flight over the White Mountains. By boat, it's a 3-4 hour drive from Fairbanks to Circle, then a 3-4 hour boat ride on the Yukon River.
Fort Yukon is located 8 miles above the Arctic Circle, right where the Porcupine River meets the Yukon River.
Fort Yukon is the largest village among these villages.
As such, it is the hub through which these other villages are best
reached. A strong base in Fort Yukon will allow us to impact these other
villages and beyond.
Most of the people in Fort Yukon have relatives in these other villages. Some of them moved to Fort Yukon from another village. They are very interconnected with each other, with frequent travel between them.
We have a great opportunity to influence an entire region of Alaska with the message and hope of Jesus Christ.
