Dear friends of the Christian Church (DOC) in Kansas,
In accordance with the Constitution and By-Laws of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Kansas, the following people have been selected and confirmed by the Regional Board in August 2021, to come together to lead the process of calling a Regional Minister:
- Stephanie Switzky — Chair
- Ruby Brower — Moderator Elect
- Greg Barlow
- Danny Ginn
- Rodney Hopper
- Avalene James
- Parker Kottman
- Joshua Leu
- Diane Watkins
An orientation was held for our committee on Sept. 18, with our Regional Minister Search Partner, Nadine Burton, Executive Regional Minister of the Great River Region of the Christian Church (DOC).
The integrity of this process requires the participation of the members of the church gathered through the Kansas Region. As we begin to organize this work, the first task is to develop a profile of our Region that will enable prospective candidates to have a better understanding of who we are and what our hopes and dreams are for the work of the church through our Region.
Your voice is very important. There will be two Zoom listening sessions for prayer and conversation. Members of the Regional Minister Search Committee will be present to lead the prayers and listen to your hopes and dreams for the Region. The recorded Zoom calls will be at least 30 minutes, so join when you can.
The Zoom Meeting link can be found here:
Monday, Nov. 29 at 4 p.m. (CST)
For those who cannot attend, please fill out a short survey. A link to the three-question survey can also be found here. As we engage in this process, we will update you with information concerning this process and journey. We covet your prayers as we move forward in a way that will honor and glorify God.
Stephanie Switkzy, Search Committee Chairperson
