We have seen first-hand that, even as we seek to follow Jesus closely, the way forward will not be without struggle. We know this is especially true as we navigate the divisions within our own denomination and the ways they are manifesting in our churches and relationships. And yet, we also believe that we, in the Dakotas, have deep relational roots and we believe those relationships can still exist even as our paths of ministry may diverge. As we emerge from a season of disorientation and disconnection, we know that Jesus has continued to be our Waymaker, working in and through all of us. The 2020-2021 Missional Report highlights some of the ways we’ve seen this truth revealed in the past year.
