In 2006, Prior Lake Baptist Church began a church plant in Jordan with a group of its members under the leadership of Pastor Daniel Lowe. They named the church Sand Creek Baptist Church. For eight years, Sand Creek met in various locations as it grew in size. In 2014, God called Pastor Lowe on to another ministry, and the church began a search for a new pastor. During this transition period of two years, the size of the church began to shrink, and the church switched locations from the elementary school gym to what had previously been the Tree of Life Church building in downtown Jordan. In 2016, after two years of patient searching, the church voted in Caleb Boston and Michael Stephansen as pastor and assistant pastor, respectively. In December of 2017, the church switched locations to what had previously been the Immanuel United Methodist Church building. Though small, Sand Creek is already beginning to see growth under the leadership of these two men and others who are passionate to see the continuation of the Lord’s work in Jordan.
Our prayer is that Sand Creek Baptist Church continues to grow as a Bible-hungry, praying, giving, missions-minded church where diligently prepared expository sermons, doctrinally rich biblical teaching, and purposeful, reverently joyful worship distinguish her gatherings. We also strive to have a pastoral ministry which is driven by a shepherding philosophy rather than marketing motivations and a discipleship orientation rather than entertainment-evangelism strategies. God has already been using these passions as a means of bringing new members and making new contacts in the community.
Our goal is to construct our own building on a parcel of land which the Lord has enabled us to own on Highway 21 just outside of the downtown area as soon as He enables us to do so.
Will you join us as we seek to further the kingdom of God here in Jordan?
