Church Narrative Project

Have you ever experienced a process that shifted your world? What would it look like for members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) to hear storytellers and engage our narratives? And what kind of church might we have if we imagined a narrative of a shared future? 

The Church Narrative Project aims to facilitate the collectively developed preferred narrative of the shared future of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

The preferred narrative of our shared future is about who God is calling us to be in light of who we have been, who we are, and how we imagine we might meet God in the future given those two realities. It’s about imagining a future by being honest about the stories that make us who we are as a church, and deciding together which stories to carry forward and which may not serve our shared future. The preferred narrative of the future will encompass the tenets of being anti-racist and pro-reconciling, and yet goes far beyond antiracism to state a positive and affirmative vision of the church as a result.
