About Us

Outdoor chapel at Tawakoni our regional camp and conference center.

From the wide-open prairies to the Flint Hills, from the small country churches to the big city, the Christian Church in Kansas (Disciples of Christ) is as varied as our topography. It has a rich history with eyes looking toward the future. As a region, we are working hard to understand what role the Regional Church plays in church life in this century and beyond.  Read more about our history here.

The Christian Church in Kansas provides current and future church leaders opportunities to grow through leadership workshops, retreats, mission projects, and summer camping programs.  Our 73 congregations are spread from Goodland to Baxter Springs, Ulysses to Atchison, and encompass nearly every county except Greater Kansas City metropolitan area. Read more about our camp and ministry programs.

Our diverse staff includes three Regional Ministers, and a part-time Coordinator of Women’s Ministries operating out of three offices: Topeka, Great Bend, and our Disciples Center at Tawakoni. Assisting them is five-member support staff team.   CCK is fortunate to have regional staff who have good internal communication and strong working friendships; they are committed to deepening those ties. Read more about and contact our regional staff here.

The region is divided up into five districts, High Plains, Central, Northeast, Southeast and South Central, that are served by a district minister.  Each district plans events and workshops to help congregational leaders and bring a sense of unity across the entire region. Read more about and contact our district offices here.

The Regional Board consisting of 31 representatives from across the region assists and oversees the various functions of the Christian Church in Kansas.  Officers are elected at the Regional Assembly held in even number years. Rev. Kelly Gindlesberger was elected in 2018 as Regional Moderator for a two-year term.  Read more about the regional board and its members here.
