A number of our people help with Missouri Baptist Relief. Contact Rod Everage or Missouri Baptist Disaster Relief to find out how to get training and participate.
Since 1986, MBC Disaster Relief has grown from a handful of volunteers to a mighty force of responders. We have answered the call to countless disasters in Missouri and around the world. Missouri is known as one of the premier SBC DR states.
Missouri offers about 2000 trained and credentialed volunteers. These volunteers are equipped and ready to answer the call of any type of disaster. We work with 42 SBC state conventions to advance the gospel in the middle of crises – whenever, wherever, however.
MBC Disaster relief hosts four training sessions each year in our state. Because of national agreements, each MBC DR volunteer must have a background check and be trained. Each training event is scheduled on a Friday evening and Saturday. You can get involved in the following areas:
- Feeding (Mass Care)
- Chainsaw Recovery
- Flood Recovery (Mud Out)
- Child Care
- IMT (Incident Management Team)
- Blue Hat (team leadership)
