(Regional Committee on Ministry)

2022 RCOM Team Members

The Regional Committee on the Ministry (RCOM) of the Great River Region (GRR) of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) works with candidates for ministry and their sponsoring congregations or bodies to see that those who feel called into ministry are prepared and qualified to serve and have the skills, education and experience to equip them for relevant, fruitful ministry. RCOM works in accordance with the Policies and Criteria for the Order of Ministry in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). RCOM acts on behalf of the GRR in matters pertaining to the care and nurture of ministerial candidates and certification for ordination, commissioning, and ministerial standing. This process is the joint responsibility of the candidate, congregation, and region, and therefore requires a willingness of all three partners to invest in the process.
