Mrs. Jackie Compton Bunch

Jackie Compton Bunch serves as Chair of the NBA Board of Trustees. She has a longstanding tenure of service within the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), including Chair of the Search Committee for the General Minister and President, President of the National Convocation, President of the International Christian Woman’s Fellowship (ICWF),  President of Global Women Connecting (formerly World Christian Women’s Fellowship), and Vice Chair of the Black Disciples Endowment Fund (BDEF).  She has also been awarded the Disciple of Merit Award from the Christian Church in Ohio.

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.
