The Christian Church in Oregon and Southwest Idaho


The Christian Church in Oregon and Southwest Idaho is a ministry shared by 42 congregations of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) located in Oregon and Southwest Idaho.  This is the region we belong to.

Our Regional Ministers are Doug Wirt and Cathy Myers Wirt. This regional ministry team has deep roots among Oregon Disciples with a good deal of experience in the wider church as well. They have served together in four ministries in Oregon, California and Arizona before starting their current ministry with the Christian Church in Oregon.  In addition to their individual roles, together they provide pastoral care, visit local congregations on a regular basis, and assist congregations in their ministerial searching processes.  Cathy and Doug have served as the Co-Regional Ministers of Oregon since June of 2001.  They have two adult children.

Our regional website has information on regional events, like women’s retreats, youth retreats, and regional assembly.
