These are challenging and exciting times to be in ministry. While the good news of Jesus Christ still inspires many outside the Church, we are all re-evaluating the way we share and embody the gospel. With gratitude for our forbears and for the saints beside us today, we are moving together in faith to accompany and support new generations of disciples and might-be disciples of Jesus who give shape to a Church that will continue to change lives and communities in Jesus’ name. Our new and transforming churches will reflect this adaptive dynamic.
Our goal is to start five new congregations in new ways in the Kansas City area and help five more with transformation into more missional focus and sustainability. We have decided that a full-time staff person is needed to focus exclusively on these two initiatives.
We are Disciples of Christ. Our mission, vision, confession and identity are not prescriptive of a closed community but descriptive of a diverse, inclusive, hopeful people. The person that God is preparing for this ministry will already be one of us or may be someone who can serve and lead with integrity among us.
