DisciplesWorld is an independent news journal for the Disciples of Christ based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Incorporated in 2002, it is managed by a 12-member board of directors. The journal is circulated across the United States and Canada to both churches and private homes. DisciplesWorld ceased publication at the end of 2009.[1]

An archive of DisciplesWorld online articles is maintained by Disciples of Christ Historical Society, and may be found at http://www.disciplesworld.com.

DisciplesWorld is a successor to The Disciple, the Church's official magazine published by the Christian Board of Publication until it was discontinued in early 2002 for financial reasons.

The role of journals in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)[edit]

Beginning with the publication of The Christian Baptist by Alexander Campbell in 1823, journals have played a major role in shaping the thought and dialog of the movement from which the Disciples emerged.

DisciplesWorld seeks to keep that publishing tradition alive. Publishing articles on a wide variety of issues for the church, the journal prompts some lively discussions among members across the entire church. As an independent journal, it is free to explore many points of view.
