The Cadiz Christian Church was founded on August 1, 1842 by 24 people. After initially meeting in the courthouse, it wasn’t long before we moved to a log structure. In 1852, we met with the Masons and agreed to construct a building that would be used by both groups. In 1892, a church building was constructed at the corner of Main and Madison, and the church continues to meet in the same building.
As a church we have sought to be a place where people of different beliefs can find a common ground on which to stand. We have through a variety of projects sought to serve the needs of our members and the needs of our community. In all that we do, we want people to know the grace of God.
Do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with God.
Senior Pastor: Rev. Kevin Deibert
Kevin and his wife Tracy came to Cadiz from Denver, Colorado via North Carolina. He received an MDiv from Wake Forest in 2016. He also has a B.A. in Religious Studies and a B.S. in Psychology from Regis
University in Denver Colorado. Pastor Kevin’s done many things in life, from washing dishes to being a chief engineer for satellite television production and news gathering events such as the changing of the
flag in the former Soviet Union to what is now Russia. Because of these different livelihoods, he’s travelled all over the world from Sarajevo and Somalia to Cadiz, Ky. Tracy and Kevin met and were married in Colorado and have a house full of fur babies.
Pastor Kevin also serves as the chaplain for the Trigg County Hospital and serves for the Trigg County Travelers Aid and the Cadiz Christian Church community assistance program. He believes that everyone is welcome at the Lord’s table and in God’s house, “no matter who you are, where you’re from or what you’ve done.” Our common ground is love and when Jesus says to love others, he means love everyone and anyone as you love yourself. What’s good for you is good for them, no one is excluded.

What do Disciples of Christ Believe?
Cadiz Christian Church is also a Green Chalice Ministry. This means we participate in the Green Chalice Program, a creation care ministry developed by the Christian Church In Kentucky in 2007. As part of this program, we strive to demonstrate the fullness of God’s shalom through living out our faith by caring for God’s creation. You can learn more about the Green Chalice Program by clicking on the button below.
Located outside our church and built by a member of our congregation, we have a Blessing Box that is open 24/7. It is to help those in our community or passing through that may be in need of a small "blessing" in the form of a food or hygiene item. It is essentially a mini-pantry in which anyone can take what they need and/or leave what they can. Anyone is welcome to donate items to the box.
To help pet owners who may need a little extra help with pet food from time to time or in an emergency, we have a small pet food bank. If you are need in of a hand with pet food or know someone who is, you can call us and we will set up a time for you to come pick it up. We also accept donations from anyone who would like to contribute. In addition to pet food, we also take cat litter and gently used but clean toys or blankets.
