“As people of faith, we understand that no one person can help everyone — we are called to act together for the care and well-being of all humanity.”
- Mark D. Anderson NBA President
Serving as the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) health and social services general ministry, NBA partners with local congregations, regional and general ministries, and a variety of Disciples-related health and social service providers. Our shared work is about advancing the care for and — with others in our communities — raising the awareness of needs that are often overlooked and forgotten. NBA equips and collaborates with partner ministries and organizations that provide direct care to those in need—via affordable housing; spiritual care for the incarcerated, children and family services, programs for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, care and advocacy for older adults, and initiatives responding to hunger in its many expressions.
