About the Pine Ridge Baptist Church

 

Pine Ridge Baptist ChurchThe Pine Ridge Baptist Church was founded in June of 2012 by Ken and Sherry Trivette. It serves as both a place of worship and a base for ministry on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Ken and Sherry Trivette moved to the Pine Ridge Reservation in 2012 after holding several tent meeting revivals on the reservation. They were burdened for the needs of the Oglala Lakota Sioux living on the reservation. After renting a building for services for two years, the Trivettes acquired land near Batesland, South Dakota, and construction of their church building began soon after. The Pine Ridge Baptist Church holds a service at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays, and a Bible study at 6:00 p.m. on Thursdays.

 

Worship at Pine RidgeKen and Sherry also provide meals and transportation for many of the churchgoers each week, as well as hold clothing distribution events and provide food vouchers to the people so that they may purchase groceries at a local store. Most of the Lakota people live far below poverty conditions, often living in unfurnished homes which provide little access to electricity and shelter from harsh winter conditions. Alcoholism is also a severe issue among the people on the reservation, leading to further living complications. The people also lack access to proper healthcare and education due to the hospitals and schools suffering from high turnover among doctors and teachers, respectively.

 

But while the needs of the people are many, Ken and Sherry’s ministry serves the people by introducing them to the Gospel message. They have seen many lives changed through their ministry.

Need to know where to send a donation? Here’s how you can support the Pine Ridge Baptist Church:

The Needs

Serving the needs of the people on the Reservation is foremost to the ministry of the church. These include food, utility bill payments, clothing, and much more. In addition, the operating costs of the church must also be covered. Fuel for the buses and vans is needed to bring the people to church, the utilities at the church must be paid, and the food for lunches each Sunday must be purchased. These are just a few of the areas where donations make a difference. So how can you help?

Pray

The Oglala Lakota people have many needs. Ken and Sherry want to be able to help as many people as possible, but they cannot do it without God’s help. Prayer is one of their most powerful allies. Throughout the church’s history, many projects have relied on prayer to bring in remaining funds or assistance for completion. Through the prayers of individuals and partner churches, Ken and Sherry’s ministry can continue.
