The White Cross has a new home in Canada! Headquartered on the campus of Taylor College and Seminary and under the direction of the E P Wahl Centre, White Cross continues to provide compassionate care ministry to the NAB hospitals in Cameroon and Nigeria. For decades White Cross has provided rolled bandages, baby layettes and other hospital and medical supplies to assist in the medical mission work being done. It is truly a life-saving humanitarian service and a vitally important supplier to these African missions.
This transition is part of a wider re-organization at the NAB. The denominational headquarters have moved from Chicago to northern California, and the NAB is focusing on fewer areas of ministry. At the same time, Taylor has been embracing new opportunities for training and serving, and the White Cross ministry is a good fit with the E P Wahl Centre.
Volunteers at Taylor are working with staff and administration in establishing the new Canadian operation, and within a few months the first container bound for Cameroon will leave Edmonton, filled with life-saving supplies.
The NAB’s White Cross ministries in the United States have been handed off to a church in Texas. The Quest Church in Royse City, which has warehouse space and other resources ideal for handling White Cross shipments, will work cooperatively with (but independently of) Taylor.
As a part of this transition, Taylor is currently undergoing renovations in Benke to house the White Cross Ministry. Once complete, we will have access to a spacious location for our staff and volunteers to work in as they receive and process these important shipments.

White Cross continues to be a valued ministry of our NAB churches serving our missions overseas. The changes being experienced right now will make this ministry even more effective.
