NBA Dedicates New Office Space

St. Louis, MO

On June 4, 2015, Disciples colleagues in the St. Louis area joined with National Benevolent Association staff and board members for an Open House and Blessing of the NBA’s new office space at Union Avenue Christian Church. The program included several representatives who offered reflections on our shared ministries across the life of the church:

  • Rev. Dr. Suzanne Webb, senior minister at Union Avenue Christian Church and member of the NBA Board of Trustees
  • Rev. Penny Ross-Corona, president of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Mid-America and Southeast Gateway Area minister
  • Ms. Jackie Compton Bunch, member of the Christian Church in Ohio Regional Church Council and the NBA Board of Trustees
  • Mr. Brad Lyons, president and publisher at Chalice Press
  • Rev. Dr. Sharon Watkins, general minister and president of the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ

Together, the NBA board, staff, colleagues, and friends dedicated the new office space as sacred space and celebrated Disciples health and social service ministries, as Rev. Watkins recalled from Mark 2:22, as “new wine” in “new wineskins.”
