 Disciples Mission Fund Supports General Ministries

The special offerings taken at Easter for Disciples Mission Fund (DMF) provide tremendous support for Disciples general ministries, including the NBA. Your gifts and the DMF funding we receive annually directly impact our collaborative mission work with Disciples health and social service ministries to truly create communities of compassion and care across the life of the Church! 

Please find information and resources related to DMF and the Easter Offering at the link below. This Lenten season, we pray blessings for your community and give thanks for your support!

Dismantling the
School-to-Prison Pipeline

Rev. Dean Bucalos: "We have named it the school-to-prison pipeline. It’s emerged over the years...the pathway to prison is paved early on in one’s life, and a disproportionate number of young people of color are subtly directed along this route. It is unnecessary, unjustified, and unconscionable. But it is a reality."
