North Dakota

North Dakota Mission Trip
The peoples of the Spirit Lake Nation are of the Dakota Tribe and have been in this area since 1867. The reservation is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the Dakotas just eight miles south of Devils Lake, North Dakota. The reservation consists of four districts one-half million acres spread across rolling prairie and wooded hills. The Spirit Lake Ministry Center is located on 80 acres in the Wood Lake District just three miles from Tokio, North Dakota. The Ministry Center has three dormitories, and up-to-date shower/toilet facility, a workshop, a kitchen/dining facility, food pantry, warehouse and a Christian Life Center. There are three separate devotional areas and a large fire pit available for the use of our teams. The Spirit Lake Ministry Center hosts volunteer teams from all over the country. These Volunteer in Mission (VIM) Teams will be asked to perform light construction and maintenance on homes, tribal buildings and grounds on the reservation and to provide team members for children’s activities. All activities are very hands on and involve close interaction with the elders and children of the reservation. Each VIM Team will also be provided opportunities for work projects on the Ministry Center. Opportunities for participation in Native American cultural activities are provided.

TBD 2018

This is a great trip for families. Light duty construction in the morning and sidewalk Sunday School in the afternoon. Construction involves painting, building decks, wheelchair ramps, etc. Sidewalk Sunday School involves short Bible story, snack and playing and entertaining the kids.
