North Point Christian Church | Spearfish, SD
For 12 years, North Point Christian Church (Spearfish, SD) had met in a high school auditorium. Kids classes and even the Nursery were located in the hallways. Outreach activities always required the rental of a facility or park. As a result, the church seemed to have reached a plateau.
The Leadership at North Point prayerfully set a new vision, to create a Kid-friendly church reaching out to young families. This would require additional staff and a facility to launch new ministries. As Matt Branum, Lead Pastor, describes it â€œwe want to do something so big that if God doesnâ€™t show up we fail.â€
In September, North Point celebrated the grand opening of their new ministry â€œToolboxâ€. Over 250 people gathered to worship God and celebrate the next step in the North Point vision. As kids played in inflatables and ran through the halls, adults enjoyed grilled burgers and brats, and shared stories of the ministry of North Point.
â€œThe Solomon Foundation made it possible for us to move forward with the vision God had given us for ministry in the Black Hills.â€ Branum said. â€œNot only have they financed the building of this facility, but they have offered us counsel, insight, and investment in this ministry. More than a lending institution, TSF have truly become partners with us in this ministry. I know that we wouldnâ€™t be where we are with Lynn Ragsdale and TSF.â€
