Mesa Conjunta

The Roundtable (Mesa Conjunta) of our Mexican partner churches is now focused on the training of lay and clergy leaders for the growing number of the two denominations’ (Disciples of Christ and United Church of Christ) congregations.  Long term goals are to develop a network of support for new mission service projects and further collaboration in areas such as the joint ordination of pastors. Each of the denominations in the Roundtable are challenged by lack of financial and leadership support by the congregations.  Helping develop new, alternative funding sources and helping congregations and church leaders heighten their experience of what it means to be “church” and be in covenant  with other congregations are current emphases of my work.

The model of a space of dialogue of the Joint Commission has been an inspiration to create other spaces of dialogue among Disciples and Congregational Churches in Mexico.
