Dr. Kris

Welcome! The NE Area exists to effectively reach and serve our ninety congregations so they can effectively reach and serve our communities (those within and beyond our church doors).

We are one of four Areas in the Mid-America Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Together we partner to offer coaching, consulting, multiple training events, and resources. Our office is also the NE Area point of entry into the Disciples ordination and commissioning processes.

Here you will find more about ministries for and with youth and children, congregational leaders, and ministers. You can download Camp and Retreat information and registrations, the application for Ordination and Ministerial Commissioning, and Commissioning renewal forms.

Should you have any questions at any time, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.

Graciously, kris tenny-brittian
