About Us

In Christ Jesus, we are “Works of Art Investing in Works of Art.”

Inspire Family Fellowship was born with a vision to reach struggling and seeking people in the Bismarck/ Mandan area with the life changing story of Jesus Christ. Inspire especially feels called to reach struggling families, recognizing that many forces in the world are pulling families apart and away from God. One of our highest values is to provide worship experiences that the whole family can relate to, grow from, and enjoy. At Inspire we take the use of the arts in worship seriously, and passionately seek to use every creative tool to help people experience the power and hope of Jesus anew in their lives. We feel the story of Jesus is worth every effort to communicate it clearly. We believe in doing life together within an honest and authentic community of imperfect people journeying together with a perfect God. We believe that in an ever-changing world, the unchanging Word of God still points to the true source of life – Jesus Christ.

If you are someone seeking more out of life, or a family whose compass is spinning and haunted by the idea that you should be living a better story, than come be a part of the Inspire movement. We don’t expect you have it all figured out. At Inspire you can belong while you learn to believe and as you believe you will experience the joy of becoming a new person with new meaning in life. Join us!
