Rev. Dr. Nadine Burton New Vice President for Great Lakes Zone

The Christian Church Foundation is pleased to announce that Rev. Dr. Nadine Burton has accepted the call to serve as Vice President of Development for the Great Lakes Zone. Rev. Burton earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee-Martin and a Master of Divinity degree from Memphis Theological Seminary before being ordained in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). She completed her Doctor of Ministry degree in Multicultural Studies at Lexington Theological Seminary.

Nadine has a background serving congregational and regional ministries, most recently serving as the Executive Regional Minister for the Great River Region for eight years. Foundation President Gary Kidwell shares, “We are excited to welcome Nadine to our staff. She has a deep commitment to the whole church and a passion for stewardship. Nadine is a faithful leader with unshakable integrity.”

Nadine will begin her new position on June 1 and will work closely with Rev. Matt Rosine to ensure a seamless transition for donors and ministry partners in the Great Lakes Zone. “Nadine brings joy and light into whatever room she enters,” says Matt. “I’ve witnessed this in her service as Regional Minister and in her work with Disciples new church leaders. She will serve the Great Lakes Zone with deep compassion and care.”

The Foundation’s Great Lakes Zone office is in Indianapolis and serves donors and Disciples ministries in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

Christian Church Foundation serves Disciples by gathering, stewarding, and distributing dollars for mission. We do this by identifying and assisting donors who desire to make a difference through planned gifts, and by assisting Disciples ministries to be good stewards of their gifts through sound policies and prudent faith-based investment services.
