Ketchikan Leadership Summit

Ketchikan Leadership Summit, September 26-27, 2014
Ketchikan Presbyterian Church, Alaska

The Presbytery of Northwest Coast (formerly NPS Presbytery and Alaska Presbytery) will gather together at Ketchikan Presbyterian Church, in Ketchikan Alaska, on September 26-28, 2014 for our Fall Leadership Summit.

The meeting will begin with worship on Friday evening September 26, with Rev. David Dobler preaching, followed by a pot luck dinner and fellowship.  Saturday will include devotions, workshops, open space conversations, a time to discern—discuss—and decide, and dinner together.  All are invited for worship on Sunday at Ketchikan PC.  A formal agenda will be distributed soon.

Please register for the Leadership Summit as soon as possible.  Get registration information.

Commissioners are asked to make their own travel arrangements. Presbytery will reimburse cost of airfare or ferry to the meeting.  Alaska Airlines is the only airline serving Ketchikan from WA.  Alaska Marine Highway has one ferry from Bellingham to Ketchikan. Please be good stewards and make your travel arrangements by August 28.  Tickets purchased after that date will be reimbursed according to the price on August 28. 

A short ferry ride (3 minutes or so) is required to travel from the airport to Ketchikan.  NWC Presbytery will make arrangements to prepay the ferry fare, so just tell the agent at the toll booth that you are with the Presbyterian Church. 

Three options are available for lodging for either 1 or 2 nights: a Ketchikan host family, the Super 8 Motel, or staying at a location of your choice. Space is limited for staying with a host family.  Presbytery will pay the double occupancy rate for the lodging of commissioners, $55.00 (plus tax) per night.  If you choose a single room or staying at another location, you will only be reimbursed for $55.00 (plus tax) per night.

If you would like to take this opportunity to explore other cities in Alaska, visit other congregations, or extend your stay in Ketchikan, please feel free to make your own travel arrangements.
