“We exist to serve Christ in harmony with our member churches and communities.”
Formed in 1992, Tri-County Ministry is an ecumenical parish made up of one Presbyterian and six Lutheran congregations. The cooperative ministry of these PCUSA and ELCA congregations has broadened the opportunities of our members to serve our communities and beyond in the name of Jesus Christ. Through the years, Tri-County Ministry has been an intern site, especially for students wishing to focus on rural ministry. For several years, TCM sponsored the annual Seminary on the Prairie, a continuing education event open to all clergy, seminary students, and laity. Tri-County Ministry serves as an example of innovative rural ministry on the prairie of North Dakota.
