About Salem Evangelical Free Church:

Salem Evangelical Free Church has had a Gospel impact on the Fargo/Moorhead/West Fargo Metro for over 35 years. We are a multi-site church of 800+ with one church facility in Fargo, ND and a second facility in Moorhead, MN which we renovated and opened in 2011. On Sunday mornings we have one service at Salem Central in Fargo, and two services at our Moorhead location, Salem East.

Salem's mission is to glorify God and make disciples. Salem is known for it's strong commitment to the Bible and expository preaching, Youth Ministry, Children's Ministry, unity in Christ, active involvement in world missions, every believer ministry, and a warm friendliness.  Salem is a multi-generational congregation with many families.


Recently, Salem has embarked on a Five Year Strategic Plan called SALEM 2020.  This has moved Salem to begin using missional communities to make disciples who can make disciples. We are also aggressively designing a leadership pipeline that will allow Salem to consistently prepare, equip, inspire, and multiply leaders for all areas of the church. It is an exciting time to come to Salem and help lead the church into a new season of fruitful ministry!


About the Fargo Moorhead Community:

Fargo-Moorhead is a growing community consistently voted one of the best places to live in the nation. It is made up of three cities straddling the border of two states and while each city has it’s own flavor, the overall feel is that of a welcoming community and a great place to put down roots. The area’s roots are in the agriculture industry and there is still quite a bit of that, however the tech industry has taken off in the last decade. The growth in recent decades has lead to a revitalized downtown featuring a large variety of restaurants, shops, and experiences for the whole family. Fargo-Moorhead is also voted one of the best places for makers and artisans to grow their small businesses. It is also a great center for culture with numerous art museums, a professional symphony, dance, opera, and theater companies. The area is also influenced by its numerous higher education institutions including:  North Dakota State University, Minnesota State University Moorhead, Concordia College, and several technical schools.
