Spirit Lake Ministry

  • Realizing and responding to the clear call of Jesus Christ, we travel to Spirit Lake Ministry Center in North Dakota to serve members of the Dakota Tribe, as well as learn from them. Members of this tribe have resided in the area since 1867. The reservation is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the Dakotas, just 8 miles south of Devil’s Lake, North Dakota. The reservation consists of four districts on 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 3 miles from Tokio, North Dakota. Teams serve for one week, performing light construction and needed maintenance.
