Bold Visions for a More Just World

We are so grateful for our partners! It is their support that fuels our ability to live into our collective mission as the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) to bring light and life to the bold visions of leaders, organizations, and communities who are creating a more just world for all.

This season, we invite you to join other Disciples to show your support of the ministries we lead and nurture by making a gift today. We need you to be part of the NBA’s community of compassion and care. Only with you, can our bold vision become a reality.

Together, we can increase access to quality services our health and social service partner organizations and ministries provide. As people of faith, the needs of others—addressing discrimination, poverty, inequality, mental health, and wellness—are how we serve as the hand, feet, and heart of God.

Thank you for your bold commitment! Together, we are building a more just world.

Critical Care for Caregivers

We continue to support clergy and leaders of health and social services through NBA Peer Learning & Wellness Groups that include Disciples of Christ chaplains, mental health and wellness professionals, prison and jail ministry clergy and advocates, Hispanic/Latin@ clergy leaders, and activists/advocates working on justice issues. We have enhanced our support through $500 wellness grants, regularly scheduled small group check-ins, as well as opportunities for retreat and continuing education. Our hope is to provide a constellation of support for those leaders who make it a priority to care for others each and every day.


Donate to a Named Fund

We thrive on collaboration. We invite your partnership. We invite your ideas and insights. We invite your affirmation. We invite your prayers. We invite you. Thank you for your support!

Help us provide critical support to communities in need

In these days of a global health pandemic, we remain committed to a vision of creating communities of compassion and care. Your gift today supports our work of providing grants to communities in need, resources for mental health and wellness, tools for advocacy, and critical care for caregivers. Thank you!

In 2020, the NBA granted more than $1 million to support 117 Disciples-related ministries working locally in response to the crisis—food supplies for distribution centers, support for meals for those living through job loss, community counseling services, to name only a few of the grant recipients.
