The Bdecan Ministry Team, a project of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the Presbytery of the Northern Plains, and the Bdecan Presbyterian Church. The Bdecan Church is a Dakota Presbytery church located at Tokio ND on the Spirit Lake Reservation. It is the only Dakota Presbyterian church within the geographic bounds of Northern Plains Presbytery. The goal of the Bdecan Church is to listen to the Dakota Nation to support, serve, and empower the community in the areas they deem necessary and in the ways they see fit, to meet the material and spiritual needs of the community.
The Bdecan Ministry Team works together with individuals and families to develop and build on their values to improve the quality of life for the Dakota people and others on the Spirit Lake Nation.
It is important to note that we do these things not by preaching, assimilation, or erasure but by listening to and being lead by the community members, acknowledging, respecting, and uplifting the values and beliefs of the Dakota Nation. We strive to learn from their stories and what they need to learn how we can help them to become stronger and more empowered.
