About The Campaign
Tens of thousands of people have been impacted by Metigoshe Ministries since it first opened in the 1930s. Now our facilities have reached or exceeded the capacity to serve participants well. Help us ensure we answer the challenge of ministering to all those seeking spiritual renewal through “Adventure Anchored in Christ.”
The plan to grow the capacity to serve at Metigoshe Ministries includes multiple phases. Phase 1 includes replacing 15 cabins, an addition to Anna Manor and a new housing facility, all at Pelican Lake. Phase 2 includes substantially increasing the meeting capacity of The Christian Center, as well as adding six theme rooms, office space and a sauna. These improvements will ensure the ministry and serve many more generations into the future.

How You Can Help
Phase II: Christian Center Expansion Project
We hope you (and your friends) will join us this summer as we begin building our expansion of the Christian Center, located at Lake Metigoshe.
We are finished with Phase I, cabin replacement , Gary’s Place and other projects at camp, now it is time to build at the Christian Center!
We have partnered again with Mission Builders – an outreach group of the ELCA. Mission Builders use their God-given skills to help ELCA congregations, schools, camps and social ministry organizations construct or improve their facilities. Mission Builders build with local members of congregations, schools, camps and social ministry organizations. A typical project includes the Mission Builders, members of the congregation or organization and various other professionals from the community working side-by-side to improve facilities. We look forward to welcoming Mission Builders back! But they can’t do it alone.
