In 2010, the WHY Church was planted in the Elk River YMCA, led by Pastor Bjorn Dixon. Since then, weekly attendance has grown to over 100, with a thriving kids’ program, local and global outreach ministries, and more.  We have Worship & Breakfast on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM.

Originally launched to help put the ‘C’ back in the YMCA  (an acronym for “Young Men’s Christian Association), the unique relationship between the church and the Elk River YMCA has developed into a mutually beneficial partnership.  The whole community is coming to the YMCA to workout and for life’s activities which gives the church access to the very people that we are trying to reach with the Good News.  Our WHY Church family volunteers to help with whatever is happening at the YMCA, and we provide pastoral support to the local staff.  It’s a win-win!

We would love to have you join us on the journey to seek Jesus and share His love!
