Regional Gathering Recap

Thank you to all who made the Regional Gathering a wonderful experience!

Special thanks to First Christian Church in Sedalia for hosting us!

  • William Brown and the Mission & Ministry Council planned this event.
  • Clergy attended boundary training and MissionInsite training, led by Mike Weinman and James Brooks respectively. 
  • Many participated in the Festival of Sharing at the fairgrounds, helping to prepare food and hygiene/cleaning supplies for shipment where needed.
  • Larry Brown and Bob Priddy made presentations celebrating our bicentennial (video coming soon!).
  • Our new Regional Minister Team member in the Southwest, Rev. Katrina Palan was introduced. Rev. Dr. Paul Koch, who is currently serving as Transitional Regional Minister Team member, was introduced as 'settled'.
  • Our Christian Regional Youth cabinet attended activities on Saturday and then spent the night at the church to continue to plan the January retreat and the July Festival.
  • A group ventured out to the Salt Creek site of the first Disciples church in Missouri.
