      The Wounded Knee Church of God is located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.
It is in the southwestern part of the state, near the Nebraska state line. Pine Ridge is known for being the poorest Indian reservation and it is the historical site of the last Indian conflict in 1890 when 300 men, women and children were massacred by the United States Army. The Lakota Sioux people live on the reservation and face various challenges such as poverty, poor housing, gangs, alcoholism, and 50% of the people over 40 years old suffer from diabetes. Unemployment ranges from 85-90%. There is more information about the conditions in the artcle, Facts about the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, in the News and Views Section.
     Pastor Stanley and Sylvia work very hard among the people of the community. Please feel free to contact them if you have any questions. 
 
 The Church of God began by students from Gordon Nebraska Church.
First services held in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Fasthorse.
Here is a list of the missionaries who have served the Lakota people at Wounded Knee.  We thank them for their sacrifice of love.
