FAMOUS DISCIPLES MEMBERS 

Three former U.S. Presidents have backgrounds in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  James Garfield was a student at Hiram College in Ohio from 1851-1853. Hiram was founded by the Disciples Church. Garfield would then return to the college in 1856 to become an instructor and eventually its president. Lyndon B. Johnson was baptized a Disciple in the river at Johnson City, Texas. Ronald Reagan grew up in a Disciples Church and played football at a Disciples college (Eureka College in Illinois).
