RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA

Welcome to Rapid City, “The Gateway to the Black Hills.” This city is full of friendly people and boasts a rich history. For the past 10 years Mission Discovery has partnered with local ministries in an effort to offer hope to this area. Join us as we serve Rapid City through physical work projects and outreach initiatives. Recently our focus has been serving alongside a ministry called Love Inc. of the Black Hills. They are actively changing lives in Rapid City! Our teams have repaired homes, helped renovate Love Inc’s new ministry center, and gone into the community to deliver furniture to needy families. Your group will be able to make an immediate impact and leave knowing that the work will continue. At the end of a week of service, you’ll have a day to relax in the beauty of South Dakota by visiting Mt. RushmoreBadlands National Park, see buffalo in Custer State Park, and visit the Crazy Horse monument and museum.  Every evening your team will gather to worship together, talk about how God worked that day, and hear from God’s word.

  • Maintenance Projects at a Local Community Center
