Young adults, ages 21-30, are encouraged to apply for a position in the National Benevolent Association’s NBA EXPLOR program where they will explore lives of service in a faith-based, 10-month, congregationally hosted residency program.
Launched in 2014, NBA XPLOR is a prophetic movement of and for young adults who are considering lives of care and service. The residency provides 10-month professional development and vocational discernment opportunities for young adults, living simply in community and engaging in direct service and justice work. Through NBA XPLOR, we partner participants with Disciples congregations, regional and general ministries, and wider communities — positively engaging neighborhoods, the congregations, and the young adults themselves.
The National Benevolent Association (NBA) initiates ministries designed to establish and grow partnerships with health and social service supporters and providers and have extended the application deadline for the NBA XPLOR program.
