Early in 2010, a small group of Christ-followers discussed the possibility of starting a new church in the city of Aitkin. After much thought and prayer, this group of believers met for worship for the first time in June, 2010 at the Aitkin High School choir room. Feeling that it would be beneficial to be connected to a larger group of churches, the leadership of the church contacted and met with different denominational leaders and decided to become a part of The Christian & Missionary Alliance.
Larry and Nancy Burg were called as the first pastoral couple and began ministry in August of 2011. The church continued to meet at the high school until January of 2014, when we began meeting at the former Bethel Lutheran Church at 11 1st Str. SW in Aitkin. The fall of 2014 has seen the church begin our Sunday School ministry called J.A.M. Session, we’ve begun a 2nd worship service meeting on Sunday evenings, and John Baker was brought on as a part-time student ministries director to launch our youth group.
