Parish Background

St. John’s Parish began in the Spring of 1988 as a small Orthodox Mission. A group of Orthodox Christians bought a house, set up a chapel, and began having bible studies, prayer services and various outreach programs with the hopes of building an Othodox Church. St. John of Kronstadt was chosen as the patron saint of the mission. The mission continued to grow and in October 1991 the present church building was purchased. Through the direction and guidance of several priests in the OCA, the mission was received into the OCA in the fall of 2000 and became the first OCA Church in Nebraska.

Fr. James Dank was ordained priest and assigned as rector of St. John’s by His Grace, Bishop Job in November 2000. St. John’s has continued to grow and has helped found St. Nicholas Mission in Pella, Iowa in 2003, and continues its missionary efforts in Nebraska and the midwest. In January 2004 St. John’s was a recipient of a mission planting grant allowing Fr. James to devote all of his time and effort to the building up of Christ’s Holy Church.
