Bob Curtis, originally from the village of Kiana, is a vital part of the CYAK Team.

Since that time, he has continued to stay connected, and currently serves on the CYAK Advisory Council.

• What is it about CYAK that makes it unique?
CYAK’s emphasis is primarily in rural Alaska ministries. I believe over the course of several years it is sure to become more effective through conti- nously improving it’s front-end approach; basically by taking the shape of village Alaska in various ways.
• How do you see CYAK’s value of fun exemplified?
The outdoor elements such as camping, hiking, and fishing provides a fun atmosphere for students and youth workers alike.
• How can supporters being praying for your ministry in Elim?
Pray as the Lord impressed four quadrants for me to focus on in Eilm:
Edify the body.
Practice God’s presence. Evangelize Eilm.
• What first drew you into ministry?
Actually I'm a third generation minister in the family. My grandparents and parents both were involved in the ministry. Their testimony and commitment had a profound affect in my personal decision. I grew to love the God they knew and spoke alot of.
• What motivates you to continue working with CYAK?
What motives me to work with CYAK as an advisor is a love for the youth. Trusting always that our Father in heaven has such awesome plans for them. We are beficiaries as we see that come into fruitation.
