NBA Board of Trustees

About NBA

Meet Our Trustees

The NBA Board of Trustees guides the mission, ministries, and along with the President and CEO, establishes the strategic direction, fiscal oversight, and operational management of the NBA. Members are selected in accordance and in covenant with the by-laws and policies of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), of which the NBA is a general ministry. The board has standing committees, and, from time to time, may also appoint special committees.
