NACSW Members

The members of NACSW represent a rich diversity of Christian denominations and traditions. NACSW recognizes that different Christian denominations and traditions use different language to express the heart of historic Christian faith, and supports the use of expressions such as the following examples for this purpose:

a) "Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior” – stemming from passages such as Romans 10:9-10

b) “In Christ, God reconciled the world to Himself” – stemming from Scriptural passages such as II Corinthians 5:19

c) “We believe in One God, the Father who created us and all things, the Son who redeems us from sin and death, and the Holy Spirit who renews and sanctifies us.”

Brief History and Current Leadership

NACSW is an interdenominational and international organization which grew out of a series of annual conferences beginning in 1950. In 1954, NACSW was incorporated in the state of Illinois as the Evangelical Social Work Conference. In 1956, the association was renamed the National Association of Christian Social Work, and in 1957, the name was changed to the National Association of Christians in Social Work. Finally, in 1983, the association adopted its present name, the North American Association of Christians in Social Work in recognition of its members living in Canada. 

Leadership is vested in a Board of Directors composed of at least twelve NACSW members elected by the membership for three-year terms. See Current NACSW Board.

The Board employs an executive director, who carries out the operations of the organization. NACSW is incorporated in the State of Illinois and registered as a foreign corporation in the State of Connecticut. It is exempt from federal income tax under the provisions of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code.
