The Great River Region is a ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) which seeks to build up the Body of Christ and strengthen the ministries of Disciples of Christ congregations in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. Focused on discernment of God's call in each of our lives, congregations and shared ministries, we work through regional staff, congregational leaders, and denominational ministries to bring God's love and redeeming grace to the point of greatest need. (Eph. 4:11-16, Micah 6:8, Acts 1:6-8)
The Easter Offering supports the General Ministries of the church. General Ministries serve across the U.S. and Canada and around the world. General Ministries are partners in ministry serving through far-reaching and unique organizations.

Our logo was created in 2001 by Rev. Bill Mackey who at the time served FCC Baton Rouge. It is based on a drawing by Jeanette Odom Rodriguez who was 14 at the time. Her concept for our logo included an explanation that the rivers in our states remind us of our baptism and that the Mississippi River, the Great River, once divided us and now unites us by touching the length of each state as it travels to the Gulf.
