Submission Guidelines for The Disciples’ Advocate

The Disciples’ Advocate is published two to three times a year. The editors welcome stories about congregations doing mission, letters to the editor and advertisements from organizations listed in the Yearbook and Directory of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada.

Please keep in mind that due to space not all stories submissions may appear in The Advocate. However, they may be used in forms of Social Media used by DHM.

All letters sent to The Advocate will be treated as intended for publication and are subject to the editors’ unrestricted right to edit or comment editorially.

The Advocate is mailed to every Disciples congregation in the United States and Canada. One copy is mailed to each regional office, general ministry and Disciples related higher education institution. In addition it is mailed to 1,000 plus individuals and organizations who have requested it.

The Advocate is also available online for viewing and shared in Constant Contact to those individuals who have requested to view it online or through email.

Letters, stories, photographic pieces, notices from Disciples (& UCC), and information from your events are always welcome and are the basis of every issue. We only ask that story submissions be no more than 300 words. Photos should be high resolution (150 dpi or higher). If you have photos from your travels, we would like to put them into a photo gallery.

Full color advertisements are also welcome and published at no charge. Full page – 9.5 H x 7.5 W; half page – 4.5 H x 7.5 W; quarter page – 4.5 H x 3.5 W
