Nazarene Disaster Response
The visible presence of the local church is essential in any type of disaster regardless of the extent. Specific responses by representatives of the local church are essential to the on-going witness of the local Body of Christ and well being of God’s people. You and your local congregation or volunteer group are vital links to a huge network of caring responders from faith based organizations. It can be a shared commitment to the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of people in the time of need.
