Pastor Tom dreamed of planting a church that would be intentional about reaching people that no one else was reaching. With the help of his family and friends, The Pursuit held its first services on October 13, 2013, in an old strip club in downtown Minot. Over 100 people showed up on that first day to hear about the freedom that is found in Jesus Christ.
From the beginning, The Pursuit has focused on sharing the Gospel through simple and clear teaching, creating a welcoming environment for all people, and connecting people relationally to grow spiritually. Since the first service, the church has grown rapidly, quickly moving to multiple services and changing venues to accommodate the growth. What started as a few family and friends dreaming and praying in a living room has turned into 1,000+ people gathering to worship God at our weekly services.
Today, our vision has grown to see the Kingdom of God continue to expand across our state and beyond through opening up more locations and offering a dynamic online worship experience. We invite you to see for yourself what God is doing through The Pursuit and join our passion to see people's lives transformed by the power of the Gospel!
