Presbytery of South Dakota
His Way, a grassroots social media ministry developed by young adults of the Presbytery of South Dakota, offers faith community to young adults. Using social media and monthly gatherings, participants share opportunities for celebration, prayer, pursuing God’s Spirit, and mission work.
Young adults, as they transition from home and familiar church environments to new school, work, or social settings, maintain contact with others in similar situations who share a common commitment to compassionate and prophetic discipleship. The His Way community has actually extended to people of all ages from all over the world.
Participants communicate with others through the His Way SD Facebook page, where they talk about ministry ideas, prayer, and theology. To satisfy their yearning to also engage face-to-face, they formed smaller regional groups. And once a month everyone comes together in a statewide His Way gathering where participants fellowship with one another, join congregations in worship, and do a service project such as assembling kits for PDA, remodeling at churches or camps, or filling food backpacks for local families.
Through this combination of social media and worship-and-service gatherings, His Way has created a new community for individuals in the presbytery and beyond to preach, proclaim, and recover their faith in a meaningful way.
The Presbytery of South Dakota has 63 congregations.
