Disciples Men is a cooperative effort between the Office of Disciples Men and the General Conference of Disciples Men. The Office of Disciples Men (ODM) consists of the Director, Greg Alexander, and the Associate Director, Alex Ruth. The directors are resourced by Ministry Associate Kelly Harris, who lends her considerable assistance to the work of Disciples Men (as well as several other ministries at DHM). The General Conference of Disciples Men (GCDM) is comprised of the Regional Men’s President and Regional Men’s Staff Member of each of the 35 regions of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada, and elected members of the Conference Executive Committee.
The ODM and GCDM work together ministering the unique needs of men in the church. Our combined mission is to empower men to discover and fulfill their potential as servants of God. This, in turn, strengthens the witness of the total ministry of the church.
The General Conference of Disciples Men regrets to announce that Sessions 2020 to be held on the campus of TCU has been cancelled. The decision was made to fully live into the planned theme for the event, “I Am My Brother’s Keeper.” With the dramatic impact of COVID-19, the best way we can be our brother’s keeper is to suspend meeting in person this summer.
However, all hope is not lost! The Sessions Planning Team is already working on a plan to hold Sessions 2020 in 21! Plans are in the beginning stages, but we hope to offer a one-day event leading up to General Assembly. This will be a unique opportunity to gather as Disciples Men for Sessions, and then support our denomination with our presence at the assembly. Stay tuned for more information in the coming months.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
