Marks of a Faithful Regional Church

Regional ministries exist to cultivate growth in congregations by demonstrating true community, deep Christian spirituality, and a passion for justice, as called for in Micah 6:8. Regions also educate and empower congregations to become healthy and vital living witnesses to the love, justice and grace of God through Jesus Christ, as is called for in Acts 2:43-47.

Every person who is a member of a Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) congregation is automatically a member of the Region in which that congregation is located. There are 32 regions in the United States and Canada.
