Bakken Outreach & Evangelism Ministries
In classic boom fashion comes the bust! North Dakota’s unemployment applications rose in 3 weeks time to the number it had posted for all of 2019. The Covid-19 Outbreak has caused a world wide drop in oil prices. This comes at a time that the congregations in Williston and Cartwright are in an interim period and trying to determine their futures. Please offer prayers for them and Canon Missioner, Hal Weidman as they discern next steps.
to the boom in the Bakken Oil Patch of western North Dakota, the population of the state has grown for the first time since the Dust Bowl-era. This rapid growth has overwhelmed infrastructure, but provided ministry opportunities for the Church. “Wild West” boom towns are springing up. We know God is calling us to respond in ways that are new and will stretch us, but we are eager to get busy, trusting God to provide the vision and resources needed.
