New Branches Board

New Branches is governed by the New Branches Board. The New Branches Board consists of representatives from each of our three partner congregations. 

Partner Congregation Staff

Each of our partner churches maintain their own staff, including staff responsible for ministerial and worship leadership, children, youth, and adult faith formation programs, communications, finance, music, administration, and more. 

Land Acknowledgment

We acknowledge that New Branches is located on ancestral land of the sovereign Dakota Nation, stolen through dishonest dealings and broken treaties. We honor as truth that this land was, is, and will always be sacred to the Dakota people and integral to their identity and spirituality.


With gratitude for the many ways that we continue to benefit from the wisdom and work of the Dakota people and those with whom they shared this land, we acknowledge the complicity of Christian churches in past and present injustices. These harmful acts range from genocide, ethnic cleansing, forced assimilation, and unjust exile to ongoing practices that oppress and marginalize Indigenous people.


We commit to continued learning and truth-telling. And we commit to taking action, led by our Native relatives, that leads to justice for Indigenous people—in our community and beyond.
