The Dakotas Mission District is an administrative territory within the Minneapolis Deanery of the Diocese of the Midwest. Established in February 2023, it is located in the states of North and South Dakota and is overseen by His Eminence Archbishop Daniel of Chicago and the Midwest.

The Dakotas Missions District was established for the purpose of focusing energies and coordinating resources among new and established parishes, missions and chapels of all Orthodox jurisdictions within the Missions District wishing to work together in a common effort to evangelize the Dakotas. Co-ordination of missions and evangelizing initiatives currently is spearheaded by the established OCA parishes in Minot and Fargo, and by the newly established mission of the Antiochian Archdiocese in Bismarck, ND. Though not within the defined boundaries of the Dakotas Missions District, Orthodox chapels, missions and parishes of all jurisdictions in Minnesota as well – specifically the OCA chapel in Bemidji, the OCA mission in St Cloud and the Serbian parish in Chisholm – may join forces with clergy and faithful within the Missions District to identify issues, assess needs, and share resources for evangelizing their own respective regions in Minnesota.
