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)

Mission Gathering Dates:
The Great River Region is moving full steam ahead with plans for Mission Gatherings this spring and summer. 
We have the following Gatherings confirmed:

September 13 at 5:30 pm - First Christian Church in Tupelo, MS

Please RSVP to the Host Church if you are planning on attending.

We are still looking for volunteers to work with the Mission First Initiative. If you are interested in serving as a host church, please contact the Regional Office. 

We want to offer you another tool to promote Mission Gatherings.  A one and a half minute animated video has been put together that will help better understand what will happen at a Mission Gathering.

Our logo was created in 2001 by Rev. Bill Mackie 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.
