Your time in Spirit Lake can make a lasting difference in the lives of local church leaders, who sacrifice every day to bring a sense of hope and purpose to their neighbors. A life of ministry among America’s Indian peoples is demanding in every sense of the word, and often disappointing and discouraging.
Plan on pouring love, encouragement, and joy into these warriors. Be creative.
Make it such a beautiful week that the memory of it will energize the local Christian leaders until you come back next year!
You’ll find relational ministry the challenge your team needs to break the mold of routine missions and kick start some serious spiritual growth.
Relational Ministry: Although we have often seen the development of special relationships between mission team members and local families, 2015 was the first time we had ever built a mission completely around small team and relational investment in specific families. You'll have fun with them, share stories, help them, and learn from them, sharing the love of Christ through a lasting, impactful relationship.
Church Support: Disappointment and discouragement are never far from the ministers who sacrifice so much to serve the Dakota here. Think of ways to bless your ministry hosts personally while you serve here.
Bring a team of Christ followers to North Dakota to help execute the God-given vision these faithful champions nurture for their community.
