Our History

Our 88 congregations are spread from Goodland to Baxter Springs, Ulysses to Atchison, and encompass nearly every county except Greater Kansas City metropolitan area. The faithfulness and generosity of Kansas Disciples consistently places the region in the top eight for Disciples Mission Fund giving. The average worship attendance for all reporting Kansas congregations in 2014 was 6,968 with 11,841 participating members and 170 ministers.

Our 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.

The regional church maintains one campground, Disciples Center at Tawakoni, between Augusta and Wichita, which houses our South Central Satellite office.

We directly relate to Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa, OK, Tennyson Center for Children in Denver, CO, and Kansas Christian Home in Newton, KS. Kansas Disciples consistently have responded with monetary support to Week of Compassion and with mission teams to areas throughout the world following natural disasters.
