To meet the spiritual needs of a growing population in Bismarck, North Dakota, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church was formed by the Mission Board of the American Lutheran Church (ALC) to have another ALC church. At the time, 1960, there was only one other ALC church (Faith Lutheran) and 2 ELC (Evangelical Lutheran Church) churches (Trinity Lutheran and Church of the Cross). Work was begun in the summer of 1960. On June 1, 1960, the Mission Board called Pastor Robert Lynne from his parish in Mott, ND to be the mission pastor. When Pastor Lynne and his family arrived on October 4, construction of the church was underway. Pastor Lynne was called to gather "a flock" to organize the mission church.
