Ministry on the Margins operates by the grace of God, who provides us with wonderful people living on the margins as well as wonderful volunteers and donors. Please pray that we can keep serving each other.

WE ALWAYS WELCOME VOLUNTEERSEspecially in the summer!

Our ministry relies on volunteers. Click on the volunteer tab at the top of this page to see our regular weekly events. Online signup is fast and easy and saves us a lot of worries. We also need volunteers for special events, services, and projects, such as programs to help reintroduce former prisoners to employment and society.  Contact Julie Dahle, Business Manager, julie@ministryonthemargins.org, to learn more.


With the increased need for food pantries we are in desperate need of donated non-perishable items especially  peanut butter, canned soup, ramen noodles, canned tuna, canned fruit, canned vegetables, cold cereals, pancake mixes and pancake syrup. Please call 701-223-6315 when you arrive so we can meet you at the door. 


Items that we always need include infant and child diapers and personal items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, deodorant, clothes soap, feminine hygiene products, incontinence pads, 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner, and dish soap. Small sizes are preferable to large sizes because many of our folks carry all their belongings in their backpacks.
