To facilitate the formation and strengthening of local Native American churches in Northern Minnesota by ministering to the whole person through Godly example, evangelism, Bible teaching, discipleship, and biblical counsel.
Who We Are—
The Center for Indian Ministries (CIM) is part of the Oak Hills Fellowship. Along with Oak Hills Christian College, Camp Oak Hills, and church ministries, CIM ultimately seeks to glorify God in serving Him and bringing glory to His name. CIM works to minister to Native Americans.
CIM has volunteer and support staff missionaries. Each of these missionaries participate in their local Native American community in different ways. Oak Hills has a very unique placement in Northern Minnesota, between 3 Indian Reservations. White Earth, Leech Lake, and Red Lake Indian Reservations.
