Reaching out with compassion.

Times of crisis strike us all. Natural disasters cause very visible crises in the lives of those they impact. They are often unpredictable, and the devastation in their wake often requires more than simple rebuilding. When our neighbors reel from the effects of a natural disaster, we are among the first on the scene.

Volunteer

Crisis Responders are at the core of our ministry. Without them, we could not effect change in our communities and those nearby. Crisis Response Ministry volunteers are men and women of various ages and backgrounds committed to be God’s hands and feet to their neighbors in need. Our volunteers are trained to identify crises of various types and respond with Godly compassion and practical support.

A Heart for Christ

Our team is made of volunteers passionate about God first and foremost. Without the comfort God provides, we cannot minister from a place of wholeness and compassion.

A Heart for Our Neighbors

We are passionate about serving our neighbors in need. Having been on the receiving end of comfort ourselves, we then share the comfort of Christ as His hands and feet.

A Heart for Knowledge

Going into a situation of crisis full of compassion but empty of knowledge can find us doing more harm than good. We train for the crisis before we engage with our communities to ensure we serve them effectively.

WHEN THE WORLD TURNS UPSIDE DOWN...

What does it take to offer a cup of cold water in Jesus’ name? It always takes a willing heart, it often takes feet that will go, and it sometimes takes training as well. Our Crisis Responders are trained to identify needs of our neighbors in crisis as well as to meet those needs. We train and prepare to equip ourselves to better meet the needs we encounter.
