This year has found us all in unprecedented times. Our daily normal has no longer been normal and has challenged us with finding new ways to work, live, and worship. For our Region to continue safe practices, this year's Regional Assembly will be a virtual experience on September 26, 2020 for Ohio Disciples.
The theme for the Regional Assembly is "Rise Up” based on Isaiah 40:31 which reads:
"but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
This year's Virtual Regional Assembly on September 26th will include:
- A video Worship Service that can be viewed at your convenience
- Live Fellowship time through Zoom
- Business items of the Biennial Assembly
- Commissioning of the next Regional Church Council members
- Recorded Webinars and live Zoom Meetings from General Ministries
- At home outreach opportunities
- And more!
We hope that you will plan to make a virtual day of it! No pre-registration is required and you can participate in as much as you are able.
We will be posting specific links and times for the live participation and videos over the next several days and next week leading up to the event.
The story we are telling is less about spreadsheets and bottom lines than it is about lives and communities which are being transformed, each day, through our shared ministry to Ohio and the world beyond. We await our next meeting together with faith, hope and love for the good work God will continue to enable through us.
Be sure to check back here, on the Facebook page, and/or on Twitter (@OhioRegion) frequently. We will post updates and further information as it becomes available. #CcioRiseUp

Connecting with the Unchurched.
Reconnecting with the Dechurched.
September 26th at 1:00pm
Led by Pastor Terrell L McTyer
Minister of New Church Strategies
Do you have an authentic desire to share your faith with people who don't yet follow Jesus? Learn how to shift your focus on reaching unchurched and dechurched people with the real and relevant love of Jesus. Explore characteristics of churches that are effective in reaching new people for Christ. Reconnect with the Great Commission to help leaders revitalize their congregations by becoming more effective in reaching people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the growth of the Kingdom of God.
These events will be happening through Zoom. The connection information for both of them can be found on the Regional Calendar - /regional-calendar.aspx
