A Legacy of Caring Since 1887
The legacy and history of the National Benevolent Association of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is filled with the healing care and faithful commitment to service by many “clouds of witnesses” (Hebrews 12:1). Our beginnings as a ministry of outreach and care and our historic foundations as an organization are grounded in the Disciples of Christ denomination.
As the general ministry for health and social services of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the NBA serves in collaborative partnerships with local congregations, regions, and other general ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and Disciples-related nonprofits. From the start, the NBA has responded to God’s call to care for the “least of these” (Matthew 25:40).
