The Dakota Partnership 2020 Mission Trip

Join Pastor Clint and Pastor Kristie on a mission to serve Native American children and their families with the Gospel in word and action.

From June 20–26, our Pastors will join with other Presbyterians and friends across Chicagoland to journey to Sisseton, South Dakota, home of the Wahpeton Sioux People. Partnering with other churches in the Presbytery of Chicago, the YMEN of North Lawndale and a local biracial Assembly of God church along with Native American Presbyterians from the Reservation, the week will focus on a four-day VBS program serving 200+ children and daily construction projects supporting the six Dakota Presbytery churches on the Reservation itself. Motel accommodations are provided in town as well as two hot meals and a bag luncheon daily at our host church, Family Life. Both individuals and entire families may sign up to attend! See Pastor Clint for more details or visit knoxpres.org/dakota-partnership. Scholarships are available.
