November Ministry of the Month - YMCA of Rapid City

OUR MISSION: To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

HISTORY:The YMCA has always stood for something more than simply fitness. Discover the rich history of the YMCA of Rapid City; find out about their humble beginnings and what it took to grow into what the YMCA is today!

The YMCA of Rapid City has a rich history extending back almost 70 years. The YMCA started because there was a vision and a desire within the community to provide programs and services to meet the physical, social, mental and spiritual needs of the people of Rapid City. In the 1940's a youth center called "The Cactus Patch" was established downtown. Later, it was relocated in the Duhamel building but eventually had some difficulties. However, Don Knecht then took over The Cactus Patch as he spearheaded an effort to organize the YMCA of Rapid City.

About Our Ministry of the Month Program

Our ministry mission is to impact people for Christ and equip them to put their faith into action.

Each month we highlight a different para-church ministry. Our aim is to bring awareness of the services that each ministry offers and highlight their mission in serving the community.

We invite you to listen each month forpportunity and to join us in praying for their mission to help and serve in our communities.  We also believe that God may draw you to volunteer. Ministry of the Month is a program hosted by KSLT/KLMP & 97.9 The Breeze. This feature shares the stories of local ministries that are making a positive impact in our community.

We encourage you to become involved and make a difference through serving and sharing.

For consideration the organization should:

    be a recognized 501c3 non-profit Christian Ministry (preferred but not required).
    have a statement of faith or charter displayed on the ministry's website.
    must be operating for a minimum of 1 year (365 days) prior to being submitted/nominated.

Each organization will go through a screening process by our staff. As the space for features is limited, please note that we cannot guarantee every ministry can be featured, but we encourage you to continue praying for the many ministries that serve the Lord throughout our listening area.
