Disciple Heritage Fellowship was founded in the 1980s by three congregations: First Christian Church in Lovington, IL, First Christian Church in Decatur, IL, and First Christian Church in Panhandle, TX. DHF has recently moved under the leadership of First Christian Church in Decatur, IL. Wayne Kent is both Lead Pastor of FCC Decatur as well as Executive Director of DHF. The full staff team of FCC Decatur is available to assist congregations around the country explore new approaches to ministry.
DHF provides encouragement to the pastor, leadership, and congregation. We wish to spur one another on to accomplish good works.
Leading a congregation can be difficult and sometimes lonely. DHF provides professional connections and a fellowship of pastors who understand ministry in today’s Church.
Impact your community and world for Christ! DHF can help you launch community outreach endeavors as well as global missions. We provide opportunities for you to participate in mission trips.
Resources, such as the Elder Update podcast, can foster growth of lay leadership within the church. Elders have a calling to leadership and need to be challenged to grow.
Connect with other like-minded congregations across the country. The DHF National Conference is a wonderful place to connect with other pastors, leaders, and congregants.
