Bakken Oil Rush Ministry is a foundational, caring outreach that helps people in Watford City, providing needed items through the thrift store. We also connect with the community through a quarterly gathering, bringing families together for a meal and devotional while also showing appreciation to volunteers. We also work in partnership annually with community supporters through the Comedy Café fundraising event which largely provides for our operational expenses. Our ultimate ministry goal is to help people find a place where they feel cared for and where Watford City feels like home. 

The Thrift Store is located at 600 12th St N.E., just North of the new post office, and is open weekly on Tuesdays from Noon to 7 P.M. and Wednesdays from Noon to 5:30 P.M.  The store is closed the last week of the month for work week. During work week, volunteers are welcome Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Donations of gently used clothing, household goods and furniture are greatly appreciated and may be dropped off at the Thrift Store Tuesdays and Wednesdays during operational hours.  Please see a complete list of current needed items under the “needs” link on the menu.  For donations by credit card, debit card or check please click on the “donation” link in the menu.
