Georgia Baptist Disaster Relief
Disaster Relief is a ministry-based approach to impacting people for the Kingdom of God. Our motto of Serving Christ in Crisis has two implications:
1. We serve Christ to those persons who are victims of disaster.
2. When we minister to persons in need, we are serving Christ Himself (Matthew 25:40).
The goal of Disaster Relief is to provide some measure of normalcy for the victims of a disaster event.
We offer two opportunities for planning for disaster response:
1. Individuals who want to serve as credentialed Disaster Relief volunteers need to attend a Disaster Relief Orientation event. Click the Training tab above for a list of current training events.
2. Churches who want basic information on how to minister during the time of a disaster can host a seminar on Family and Church Preparation.
Disasters provide many opportunities for believers to be the “hands and feet of Jesus”. Many people have a natural and emotional desire to help other people when tragedy strikes. In order to be the most effective, here are some thoughts to keep in mind:
> Attend one of our scheduled Disaster Relief Orientation events. Click the Training tab above for a current listing.
> Find out where and how we are responding by clicking the Updates tab above.
> The best response is Prayer and Financial Support. Please refrain from collecting unsolicited items and please do not self deploy.
