The Christian College of Georgia, a Specialized Higher Education Institution of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is proud to enter its sixty-fifth year (65) of ministry IN SERVICE TO GEORGIA DISCIPLES. Our mission is “To Nurture, Educate and Prepare Disciples of Christ for Ministry and Service.” One of the highlights of this mission is our partnership with TeleWorship and TransformingTheChurch.org. We entered this partnership knowing that the benefits of being in community with each other, as Georgia Disciples, is often hindered by distance between our congregations (we ARE the largest State in area east of the Mississippi River) and by the cost of travel from place to place. We are often constrained by TIME; true, we are all in the same time zone (with the possible exception of Phenix City, AL), but we are not all on the same schedule. Therefore, we can benefit from a way of communicating with each other, joining with each other, and serving Our Lord as One Body by having a place where we can keep in touch, meet, conference, deliberate, learn, and serve. That is, in part, what the GADisciples Connected Community is about.
Christian College has sponsored this opportunity in hopes that as we learn to mine the benefits of technology, we will devote ourselves to the kinds of things which makes the Church the Body of Christ. And when we do find that we are in the same place together – at Assemblies, Retreats, Rallies, Regional Meetings, Commission Meetings, Project Teams, et cetera – we will have a lot more understanding of who we are as Georgia Disciples.
At Christian College, we believe that we are enriched by many different ways in which we worship, study, gather, and serve; we believe that we are empowered by the ways in which the Holy Spirit moves within and among us ALL THE TIME; and we believe that we are encouraged by becoming and remaining familiar with each other in our daily interactions…which we can not enjoy THANKS TO THE GEORGIA DISCIPLES CONNECTED COMMUNITY. Join in…it’s FREE.
