About Us

Goodland Community Church exists to connect with families, youth and children through community worship, inspirational teaching and authentic relationships.  We believe core principles of Christian living are community with other believers, communion with God and connecting with our community and our world.

Our Story

Goodland Community Church was founded in 2011 by Pastor Zach & Michelle McNeil with their friends Brandon & Angela Torgerson. While Zach was employed as an Alcohol & Drug Counselor, Zach & Michelle moved to Goodland (Michelle’s hometown) in 2011 and immediately felt God called them to start a ministry there. Shortly after that, Brandon & Angela felt called to move to Northern MN where Brandon also took a job as an Alcohol & Drug Counselor with Zach. Brandon & Ang felt the Lord impress on them to partner with Zach & Michelle to start a church in Goodland.

Goodland Community Church began in Zach and Michelle’s home in September 2011. After the first week, they were offered the opportunity  to use the Goodland church that was not in use during that time. Goodland Community Church was able to purchase the church building in 2015.

Since its beginning, Goodland Community Church has had a vision for being Real People. Serving a Real God. Making a Real Difference. They believe community is important in the life of the believer as well as making a difference in our local community outside the church.

In 2016, the leadership team at Goodland Community Church felt the Lord calling them to expand their area of influence. Subsequently, in September 2016 Warba Community Church became a reality, exactly 5 years after opening GCC. Warba Community Church is a campus of GCC. Two churches-one heartbeat. WCC meets on Sunday mornings at 11am at Northern Lights Community School.
