Capital Area Regional Assembly
October 14, 2022 @ 3:00 pm – October 15, 2022 @ 4:00 pm EDT
The theme for the 2022 Regional Assembly is “Justice, Mercy, Humility: What Is Required of Disciples Today?” based upon the scripture passage Micah 6:8
Keynote Speakers for the event are Rev. Dr. Bernard Richardson (Dean of the Chapel, Howard University) and Rev. Steve Doan (Retired Disciples Chaplain)
As the fourth Dean of the historic Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel, the Reverend Dr. Bernard L. Richardson is the executive officer for religious affairs at Howard University. Dr. Richardson is perhaps most widely recognized by the University community and leaders across the nation for his prolific prayers and insightful spiritual guidance.
Born and raised in Indiana, Steve Doan graduated from Yale University in 1967, attended Indiana University, where he met his wife Donna. Before completing his doctoral studies in English, he was drafted into the Army and became an artillery officer. Feeling a call to ministry, Steve graduated from Lexington Theological Seminary and served two Disciples of Christ churches before returning to the Army in 1985 as a chaplain. From 2005 to 2017, Steve worked as part-time deployed staff for Disciples Home Missions as the Denominational Chaplain Endorsing Officer.
