Why did you say "yes" to serving on the NBA Board of Trustees?
Over the past several years, I have watched NBA rebuild and renew with passion and creativity. Leaders and staff cast a broad and deep vision that integrates the call to care and the call to justice.
The NBA's vision statement is "creating communities of compassion and care." What does that mean to you?
The vision is not one of NBA owning communities. It is rather a vision of incubating, supporting, connecting communities of compassion and care! This is a fresh, forward-looking, cooperative model that encourages creative responses to the needs of God's people. NBA is calling the whole church to these ministries.
