New Church/Ministry

The New Church/Ministry Team (NCMT) of the region seeks to support and nurture new congregations which do church differently and reach under-represented populations within the region. We recognize each new community being developed is unique and their practices or structures reflect the their context. The NCMT aims to work within the particular situation of each new congregation/ministry, while upholding the essentials of Disciples heritage. If you are interested in supporting or developing a new church/ministry please contact Rev. Jeff Zimmerman, Minister for New Church/Ministry.
