“American Church Group of the Dakotas has a heart for Christian education. My agent is a high-service advocate for our school. I truly feel that we are more than an account, and that every agent and staff member has our best interest at heart.”

~ Julie Hewitt, Principal, Rapid City Christian School 

“Before switching to American Church Group of the Dakotas, our church was using a large company for our insurance needs. I am so glad that Dustin came into my office to meet with me regarding our insurance needs. He was able to offer us better coverage, and saved us money on our premium costs. Above and beyond that, he has continued to be very professional and personable. I’ve also had the opportunity to attend a free seminar that Dustin and his colleagues at Brotherhood Mutual organized, and found the information very beneficial for our ministry. I appreciate the resources that this company invests in its clients, and the professionalism of its agents.”

~ Karissa Vander Waerdt, Director of Operations, Good Shepherd Lutheran

“In addition to saving money with Brotherhood Mutual through American Church Group of the Dakotas, we found a true partner in ministry with Dustin Strande. He has provided exceptional service and makes a concerted effort to educate us on liability issues specific to our evangelistic ministry for youth.”

~ Jeff Nelson, Director of Operations, Restoration Generation

We recently planted a church in the northwest corner of our city, and one of the best decisions we made in the early stages was connecting with Dustin Strande through American Church Group of the Dakotas. Dustin’s heart isn’t to have a huge list of clients, but to have a growing list of ministry partners. It’s a kingdom way of thinking that is honestly hard to find in the insurance industry. Dustin is knowledgeable, conscientious, and creative, and I think your experience with him will match ours.

~ Dave Campbell, Lead Pastor, Invitation Church


Some years ago our church switched all of our insurance coverage to Brotherhood Mutual. While increasing the areas of coverage, our premium cost actually went down considerably. I have attended free seminars and workshops sponsored by the company and have used many of their free sample forms and materials from their guidebook. I feel my biggest benefit from working with Dustin and his agency is the 100% faith and trust I have in him to steer our church in the right direction in insurance coverage and to attend to all of our current and ever-changing needs for the protection and safety of all property and church members.
