Robert P. Frank-Plumlee discusses the history of the Disciples of Christ Christian Church in Montana and chronicles the recent history of the church, its decline and its upcoming merger with the Northwest Regional Christian Church in his new book, “Big Sky Disciples Volume 2: A History of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Montana 1984–2018” (published by Lulu).

The book is a 34 year history of the Disciples of Christ in Montana, including state-wide ministry, development of the church’s 43-acre mountain retreat center, activities in currently active Disciples congregations and the stories of closed or now unaffiliated congregations of Disciples in Montana. The print version has a detailed 5-page index to help with referencing information.

“(My book) will share with readers the pride and perseverance of a group of congregations in a state that is one of the largest geographically in America while being one of the smallest in population in America,” Frank-Plumlee says.
