  • Networking: Helping to find collaborators in academia, web development, publishing houses, church leadership, mission agencies, educational institutions.

A word from Friends of DACB Chair, Judy Stebbins: “Our key word is ‘growth’ through prayer and action. We feel sanguine that a community of Friends of the DACB will be instrumental in promoting the project through financial sustainability/responsibility and networking opportunities.

By joining the DACB Friends Group, you will enjoy exclusive dinners and receptions at Oden House (for those local to the New Haven, CT area at this time), the Friends newsletter, special events with global speakers via Zoom, and other art, theater and film related events. Founding and Partnering Friends will have the option of placing ads in the Journal (relevant to the mission).”
