Disaster Relief

Leader: Jeff & Sandy Free





Purpose: To provide help to victims of natural and man-made disasters, such as floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, fires, and terrorist attacks in North America and overseas.

Affiliation: Southern Baptsit Disaster Relief is a ministry of the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Resources: More than 790 moble units (feeding, chainsaw, mud-out, command, communication, child care , shower, laundry, water purification). More than 50,000 trained volunteers, including chaplains.

Partnerships: American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, Mercy Medical Airlift, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security, National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters, International Mission Board, Southern Baptist Convention.

Organization: Disaster relief units are owned and staffed by Southern Baptist churches, regional Baptist associations, and state Baptist Conventions. Volunteer teams respond to disasters within their own state and work cooperatively with other states in larger emergencies. Teams also work overseas when the International Mission Board requests help.

History: The first Southern Baptist Disaster Relief response can be traced to 1967 when a small group of Texas volunteers helped victims of Hurricane Beulah by serving hot food cooked on small "buddy burners". All assistance is provided to individuals and communities free of charge.

The Philosophy: The philosophy behind Southern Baptist disaster relief efforts has been summed up in the phrase, "A cup of cold water in Jesus name". Matthew 25:31-46 We are following the example of Jesus of Nazareth when he fed the 5,000, and His teachings in the parable of the Good Samaritan. Southern Baptist disaster relief is Christian love in action, meeting urgent needs of hurting humanity in crisis situations. There is no hidden agenda or ulterior motive. We believe that Southern Baptist are under Scriptural and moral obligation to all mankind to provide a postitive witness of the love of Jesus Christ. He calls for Christians to demonstrate love in the relief of victims of disasters through the efficient and immediate use of the resources, time and talents entrusted to us by our Lord. Christian working together can accomplish much for the glory of God.

In His Service,


Jeff & Sandy
