Disaster Relief Ministry
The Kansas-Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptists Disaster Relief ministry is an outreach to people and communities that struggle with the effects of disaster. Disaster Relief volunteers provide ministries such as: Field Kitchen Services, Showers and Laundry Services, Chainsaw, Flood, and Fire Cleanup, Temporary Roof Repair, Communications Assistance, and Long Term Rebuild.
Kansas-Nebraska has over 700 trained disaster volunteers who show Christ’s love by meeting the needs of those who have been affected by disaster. Along with your help we can minister to more.
The words of Jesus evidenced in Matthew 25:35 inspire us to serve that we might give “a cup of cold water in Jesus’ name.” Disasters often hit suddenly and with them the opportunity for immediate ministry. No area of mission action requires more rapid response than disaster relief.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief is Christian love in action, meeting urgent needs in crisis situations.
Kansas-Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptists Disaster Relief ministry partners with Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, the American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, Convoy of Hope, Mercy Medical Airlift, US Army MARS communications, other private agencies through National VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster), and the Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide disaster response, relief, and rebuild ministries to victims of disaster.
When a request for assistance comes to the KNCSB Disaster Relief office, the need is verified and researched while individual team members are contacted to check on their availability for service during the specific response. Length of service in response to a disaster could be one day to a week or more.
