Who We Are

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Alabama-Northwest Florida is one of 32 Regions of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada. Our current Mission Statement is as follows:

The mission of the Alabama-Northwest Florida Region is to encourage and equip its congregations and pastors for the ministry of Jesus Christ in local communities and throughout the world, while seeking to nurture them into deeper relationship with God, with each other, and with the whole Church.

There are 60 congregations that are part of the family of Disciples in the Alabama-Northwest Florida Region. Each congregation is free to make its own decisions about its leadership, its property, and its ministries. In covenant with one another, however, each congregation understands that it is a part of the larger Body of Christ and lives in relationship with other parts of the Body. Each congregation voluntarily commits to the work and mission of the whole church through prayers, involvement, and financial support.  

The ministry of the Alabama-Northwest Florida Region is only possible through the voluntary commitment of individuals and congregations. The services and support the Region provides to congregations is a witness to our common commitment to one another.

The Alabama-Northwest Florida Region provides a wide-variety of ministries aimed at leadership development, congregational vitality, and spiritual renewal and growth.  We are committed to the strengthening of our congregations as they give witness to the good news of God’s grace in their communities.  Our goal is to achieve excellence in our ministries.
