The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) expresses itself in geographic ministries called regions. Regions of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) perform within their established boundaries the function of the church related to mission and nurture, and they call regional ministers as their spiritual and administrative leaders serving as the chief executive officers of the regions.

The College of Regional Ministers was formed so that regional ministers might meet and work together. The membership of the College consists of the senior regional minister of each region and the General Minister and President.
