History

Vision

A heartfelt vision for the people of the community by Pastor Burton Bundy and some local residents was the initial start for a Lutheran Brethren church in Watford City, ND. After a citywide meeting in the summer of 2009, it was decided to hold the first gathering in October. An agreement was made with the First Presbyterian Church to use their facilities until the congregation could establish a home of its own.

Just before the startup Pastor Bundy became ill and was unable to continue his ministry. A group of 13 met together and after prayer decided to go ahead. The endeavor as named Living Faith, knowing that is what it would take to make it happen.

Pastor Called

Pastor Bob Lawson was called in the summer of 2010, after many months of filling the pulpit with pastors and lay pastors from around the area.

Facility Built

Three acres were donated to Living Faith, just west of Watford City to build a church on. In May 2014, construction began on the site. The grand opening and dedication service was held on October 17, 2015.
