A Strong Church Leader And Justice Advocate Retires

On August 31st, after nine years in the position, Rev. Ron Degges retired as President of Disciples Home Missions. Under his leadership, justice advocacy was once again a priority at Disciples Home Missions, as evidenced by Ron’s strong support for such ministries as the Disciple Center for Public Witness (where he served on the Board of Governors), Green Chalice (which he established as a partnership with the Kentucky region), Refugee and Immigration Ministries (which he moved to DC as part of a partnership with the Capital Area and the Disciples Center for Public Witness), Creation Justice Ministries (an ecumenical organization that is now legally located within DHM), Children and Family Ministries, the Yakama Mission, and others.
