Disaster Response

Tupelo 4When a natural disaster, such as a tornado, hurricane, flood, earthquake or fire, hits your church building, you may immediately receive help from Week of Compassion or the American Red Cross to meet the emotional and physical needs of your congregation. But, who is helping your congregation deal with the actual damage to your church facilities?

Disciples Church Extension Fund’s Disaster Response service is designed to assist your church leaders with the immediate challenges of securing your damaged building, navigating the worlds of insurance and construction, addressing legal concerns and much more. At no cost to your church, our experienced advisors will be on the ground to work with your congregation and the Region to ensure that the trauma of disaster isn’t compounded by the uncertainty of how to deal with building damage in the days and months that follow.

Disciples Church Extension Fund is coordinating with Week of Compassion, Disciples Volunteering and Area/Regional staff to monitor the emerging needs of Disciples congregations affected by the recent hurricanes.

DCEF advisor Jim Michel was in Houston to help Disciples congregations affected by Hurricane Harvey.

From Jim: “Can’t wait to jump in with both feet to begin helping our congregations. The next 7 days are going to be incredibly busy. I just pray that we are able to make a difference for these congregations.”
