Sioux Falls is a community of many ethnicities, and Faith is particularly blessed to partner with Lutheran Christians from Ethiopia and Eritrea in Eastern Africa. The Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus ("Place of Jesus") has quickly become the largest Lutheran church body in the world with approx. 7 million members. Many Mekane Yesus Lutheran-Christians are now making their home in communities like Sioux Falls.
