Cristian was also a 2015-16 NBA XPLOR Resident in Quad Cities, IL/IA, serving with Quad Cities Interfaith. His home church is East Whittier Christian Church, Whittier, CA. His Disciples participation includes Refugee & Immigration Ministries, Disciples Women, Green Chalice, Obra Hispana, and HELM, and he is also involved with Gamaliel.

Why did you say "yes" to serving on the NBA Board of Trustees?

I support what NBA does, and being in the XPLOR program was a unique opportunity and experience for me.

NBA's vision statement is "creating communities of compassion and care"; what does that mean to you? 

In order to create communities of compassion and care, you must love your neighbor. Doing this means caring about immigration, women's rights, and environmental issues. If we can address issues like this, we can then begin to create communities of compassion and care.
