The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the Southwest! CCSW is 380 congregations across all of New Mexico, Texas and the panhandle of Oklahoma , seeking to serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the incredible mission fields where God has placed us. We are part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), an American-born mainline church organization that places its core value in belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We live that out by celebrating together regularly around the Lord's Table to share bread and cup - welcoming all to share with us
We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world.
As part of the one Body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.

Grant Opportunity through the Pearl and Joe Montgomery Ministerial Subsidy Fund
The Pearl and Joe Montgomery Ministerial Subsidy Fund was created to subsidize salaries of Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) ministers in small-town congregations, preferably in West Texas and New Mexico. However, it is not limited if the need exists elsewhere. The purpose of this fund is to provide an opportunity for ministers to develop their preaching skills as well as their pastoral responsibilities in small churches without the usual financial sacrifice.
This fund will grant an 11-month ministerial subsidy of $1000/month to support a congregation and minister. Interested ministers along with the congregations they serve may apply through the following application process.
The selection of the minister/congregation recipient will be made by the Regional Executive Committee.
Applications will be received from August 1-August 13, 2018. Selection will be made in time for funding to begin in September 2018. Click here to download application.
