Who We Are

Welcome to the Driftless Ministries!

We are glad you're here!

Who are the Driftless Ministries?

We are a relevant, Biblical, growing, and family-oriented community of believers dedicated to building disciples of Jesus Christ.  Our desire is to make a difference in your life, in our communities, and in the world.  Together, our family of churches offers you multiple opportunities to worship, grow in faith, and serve others alongside other believers through our three locations: Liberty Pole Methodist, New Hope Methodist (rural De Soto), and Retreat Methodist.

So how will you know us?  Simply put, you will know us by our Love: love that shows itself in our interaction with one another, in our acceptance and tolerance of each person; love that is manifested in our commitment to community and faith-based outreach; love that shines in the faces of our children as we tend to their spiritual education and care, and love that opens its arms and welcomes all into our family of faith.

Whether you have spiritual questions and are exploring your faith, are looking for a church to call "home", or are seeking a welcoming Sunday morning service away from home, our faith community welcomes you in.  Plan your visit today!
