NBA XPLOR Young Adult Residency Program
NBA supports a prophetic movement of young adults exploring the connection between a life of faith and the work of justice.
In 2014, we launched NBA XPLOR, a ten-month residency year for young adults ages 21-30 to live in a new community, learn about their faith, and make decisions about how they will construct meaningful, impactful lives.
Through NBA XPLOR, we partner young adults with Disciples congregations, regional and general ministries, and wider communities—building impactful learning contexts, broad communities of service, and transformational conversations and relationships. After considerable discernment, the National Benevolent Association (NBA) has made the difficult decision to place NBA XPLOR on hiatus for the 2020-21 program year. Read the full announcement here.
While on hiatus from residential programming in 2020-21, NBA XPLOR is developing new models for connecting with and supporting diverse communities of young adults. XPLOR is researching and developing a semi-virtual intentional community model which we hope to launch in 2021. Stay tuned!
