Prince of Peace outdoor service at the Lucky Twin Drive inIt was the spring of 1972 when Senior Pastor Merv Thompson had just returned from a Leadership Institute with the conviction that Prince of Peace needed to reach out to the community around us and not simply remain a small church with two acres of land at the corner of Burnsville Parkway and Nicollet Avenue in Burnsville.

He had the idea that worship could be taken “outdoor” and beyond the typical boundaries of the church for the sake of reaching out to those who might never darken the doorway of a church. That first summer a worship service was held at the Lucky Twin Drive-In Theater, which was located at the edge of the Minnesota River Valley in Burnsville.
