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.

PLANNING:

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.

OPPORTUNITIES:

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.
