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.
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.
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.
Crisis Response Ministry holds local chapter meetings, each headed by its own Chapter Director. The Chapter Director is a great source of guidance and information. Please do not hesitate to contact yours for more information.

Everybody needs somebody sometimes. Everybody needs something sometimes too. We put resources in the hands of our brothers and sisters who have suffered as victims of crime, and we love them in Jesus’ name.
