At the center of the nation’s heartland sits Kansas and the Kansas Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Though most people imagine little more than wheat fields, our topography is as varied as the state is broad, encompassing wide-open prairies, rolling hills, and the largest remaining grassland area in the U.S. – the scenic Flint Hills.
The Christian Church in Kansas has a rich history with eyes looking toward the future. It provides current and future church leaders opportunities to grow through leadership workshops, retreats, mission projects, and summer camping programs. Our 88 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 history here.
At the October 2014 Regional Assembly, the Christian Church in Kansas adopted two regional priorities upon which we continue to focus our ministries: 1) Mission and 2) Spirituality. Read more about our ministry priorities here.
Our diverse staff includes a Regional Minister, Deputy Regional Minister, two Associate 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 a five member support staff team. 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. Read more about the regional board and it’s members here.
