The Disciples 20/20 Vision and Reconciliation
The Christian Church of Northern California-Nevada recognizes that God calls us to embrace the diversity of the world around us! Likewise, we recognize that in the course of our church's history, we have fallen short of that call, and that the sin of racism and other forms of oppression keep us from being in full relationship with our God. For that reason, the CCNC-N has embraced the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)'s 2020 Vision to become an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, pro-reconciling church by the year 2020! Below is information on the ways we're striving to achieve this dream of God's realm on earth.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Award
Each year, the CCNC-N recognizes the great achievements for justice that have been contributed by Disciples in this region. The people who win the award (by nomination) exemplify the qualities of Dr. King.
In addition to the MLK Award, our region's reconciliation also gives out an annual MLK scholarship to a college student from the region who exhibits a commitment to living out Dr. King's legacy in their lives and in their communities.
