The Global Ministries program of the Northern Lights Region (Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the Pacific Northwest Conference (United Church of Christ) is a reflection of our work to engage as a region in support of intentional acts of justice and mercy to those in need globally. Currently, we share in ministry with eight Global Mission Partners, missionaries engaged around the world who regularly share with us the experiences they are having and the ways in which we can support efforts to raise up those in need. Global Mission Partners are assigned with the national Global Ministries program, a common witness of the Division of Overseas Ministries, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and Wider Church Ministries, United Church of Christ.
