Why did you say "yes" to the NBA Board of Trustees?
I said yes to serve on the NBA Board of Trustees because I am committed to being in community with those who seek to serve others.
The NBA's vision statement is "creating communities of compassion and care." What does that mean to you?
As Disciples of Christ, we are called to follow Jesus. The essence of Jesus’ teaching is compassion and care. In this world of the haves and have nots, we are called to value the dignity of all and to create communities of compassion and care.
