What is Disaster Relief?

Southern Baptist Disaster Relief is a Christ-centered partnership of national, state and associational ministries serving through the local church to bring help, healing and hope to individuals and communities affected by disaster. The TRBA Disaster Relief Ministry is comprised of volunteers from all over the assoication who are committed to sharing the hope of Jesus with those whose lives have been impacted by disasters. Our folks are trained in the following areas of ministry: chainsaw, flood recovery/mudout, mass food preparation, chaplaincy, childcare, and shower unit workers.

Three Rivers Baptist Association in conjunction with Emmanuel Baptist Church of Sandwich have a chainsaw and flood recovery trailer unit. Ken Cummins and Bob Dyer are our Disaster Relief Coordinators.

Disaster Relief Training Information

Disaster Relief Training Weekends involve a Friday evening and Saturday daytime schedule. The Chaplaincy class begins earlier on Friday afternoon at 1 p.m. It is preferred for a new volunteer to attend the Friday evening Introduction to Disaster Relief 101 Class and then take specialty classes on Saturday. However, if your schedule only allows for you to attend on Saturday you can still become a certified Disaster Relief Volunteer.
