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

As a community focused minister, I believe that serving as a trustee would be a great opportunity to work with like minded individuals from around the country. I also desired to learn more about the mission of NBA and work to shape helping ministries for the next generation.

The NBA's vision statement is "creating communities of compassion and care." What does that mean to you? 

The NBA vision statement is a guide for the activity that we desire to create and sustain. It reminds me that the work of ministry is multifaceted, that our goal is to holistically care for the individual and the community, and that through our sharing of gifts and graces we continue to operate as the heart, hands and feet of Yeshua in the earth.
