The Sioux Falls Ministry Center exists to provide operational cost savings and empowerment to Christian outreach ministries and holistic services to our guests for the glory of Jesus Christ. Our Aim is to offer:
- Centralized Services: Guests served by multiple ministries in one centrally-located building.
- Reduction of Duplication of Services: Resources utilized effectively.
- Holistic Healing: Needs met financially, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
- Empowerment of Ministry: Funding put towards programs that help our neighbors due to low tenant lease rates.
The vision of The SFMC is to serve as a “ministry mall” where guests can be walked 30 feet down the hall to the warm handshake of another outreach ministry, rather than being directed 30 blocks down the road with a brochure in hand. The facility provides convenience for the guests, but more importantly, effectiveness in ministries partnering together to help people experience peace.
It is the intention of The SFMC to follow the model of Jesus’ ministry as He offered healing to the whole person, both by word and in deed (Luke 4:31-44.) In essence, The SFMC brings ministries together for a “one-stop ministry shop” so people can experience peace spiritually, physically, emotionally and financially. A variety of ministries are absolutely necessary as each brings an unique set of gifts and talents.
A guiding passage of scripture for The SFMC is from I Corinthians 12 where the body of Christ is described as having many different gifts but all for the common good. “There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord….the Spirit is given for the common good” (1 Corinthians 12:4-5,7).
