church planting

Connection Church in Spearfish was planted September 2011 by Doug & Dana Hixson from a God given vision to be a church-planting church in the Dakotas.


We believe accomplishing the mission means reaching people who don't know about Jesus. If we are reaching people, then we are also sending people. These churches have been planted by those sent to start churches where there was a need for a gospel-driven and community-loving church. We pray for God to send more.
