The Presbytery of Yukon is a governing body of the Synod of Alaska-Northwest, Presbyterian Church (USA). While our office is based in Anchorage, Alaska, the Presbytery of Yukon consists of 21 churches throughout the state. Our boundaries are from Barrow in the north to Anchorage in the south, from Kaktovik in the east to Gambell in the west. This is equivalent to an area covering Duluth, Minnesota to Tulsa, Oklahoma and from Sault Ste Marie, Michigan to Casper, Wyoming.
In the Presbytery of Yukon, there are four distinct language and culture groups: the Inupiat Eskimos are in the north and speak Inupiaq; the Yupik Eskimos are in the west and speak St. Lawrence Island Yupik; in the Interior and South Central are Koreans and English speakers.
