Go Team, USA
Pine Ridge is located in Oglala Lakota County and is one of the poorest counties in the United States but also one of the most beautiful, with rolling hills dotted with pine trees on mostly prairie land. The South Dakota team will work in the Pine Ridge community to support our missionaries through construction and children's ministry, building projects, and building relationships with the community. Our missionaries recently purchased a new 20-acre property where they will be deconstructing the current buildings and using the materials to build a parsonage, a barn, and a pre-school building in addition to building fences, an outdoor horse arena, and eventually an indoor riding arena. The community has a horse culture, and our missionaries plan to start a horse ministry with the kids there after the construction is done.
Over 50% of the population is under 18, so the ministry primarily involves children, teens, and young adults. Children are extremely important to this ministry; your love for them and working with them can develop long-term positive friendships.
Team members are a vital part of the overall ministry; it would be impossible to maintain this ministry without short-term teams. As a Short-Term Mission team member, your role is a supporting role, offering your labor, time, prayer, resources, gifts, and talents to enhance the work being done throughout the year. Most days of this trip will be structured with bible study in the morning, construction in the afternoon, and ministry in the evening. You do not need any prior experience to be a part of this team.
