From the Division of Overseas Ministries to Disciples Overseas Ministries
The ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) previously known as the Division of Overseas Ministries will now be known as Disciples Overseas Ministries (DOM).
The DOM board met in April of 2023 and voted to make the change. The name change was announced denomination-wide at the General Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) on Saturday, July 29, 2023.
In the announcement, DOM President, Rev. LaMarco Cable, shared his excitement for the change.
“I am pleased and excited to announce that the DOM Board of Directors at its 2023 Spring meeting unanimously voted for us to do business as Disciples Overseas Ministries. By shifting the ‘D’ from Division to Disciples, the Board affirms our roots in a rich and fruitful Disciples history of promoting mission and unity. We continue this legacy of mission grounded and formed in unity, far from the contention created by the term ‘division.’ I am elated that we will now be known as Disciples Overseas Ministries.”
Disciples Overseas Ministries works in partnership with Wider Church Ministries of the United Church of Christ as Global Ministries. Learn more about Global Ministries at www.globalministries.org.
