The mission field has come to the Dakotas Conference. People from all around the world now call western North Dakota home. The population of North Dakota has grown from 642,023 in 2000 to over 700,000 today. The growth is credited to the Bakken Oil Rush happening in western North Dakota.

The cost of living is far above the income of many. People are in desperate need of services like daycare, shelter, and food. There is urgency for human and spiritual connections.
