Blessings from the Spirit Lake Ministry Center located on the Spirit Lake Nation Reservation in North Dakota. The Spirit Lake Ministry Center is dedicated to supporting the peoples of the Spirit Lake Nation and is an approved United Methodist Volunteer in Mission destination.
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.
