   Are You Prepared?

Southern Baptists are one of the largest non-government organizations performing disaster relief services in the United States,ranking third after American Red Cross and The Salvation Army. The North American Mission Board (NAMB) of the Southern Baptist Convention performs a coordinating role for the state Baptist conventions, where disaster relief volunteers are recruited, trained, and activated for service. 
MWBC Disaster Relief ministries are designed to:
  • Provide ministry opportunities  for M-W Baptists to become involved in meeting human needs and in giving a tangible witness in the Name of Christ to people victimizedby disasters.
  • Open doors for relationships  with individual people and community/state agencies which allow M-W Baptists to go into every community and place with a Gospelwitness.

 
What kind of disaster relief is MWBC able to provide?  We currently have fully trained volunteers on each of our units: Childcare Unit, Chainsaw Unit, Feeding Unit, Shower/Laundry, Mudout, Chaplaincy Unit and Prayer Support.  We have fully equipped and mobile trailers for the Childcare, Chainsaw, Mudout, Shower/Laundry, Feeding Units and Chaplaincy. 
 
How can I get involved?  A good first step to getting involved is to attend one of our training sessions.  There you will learn the basics of disaster relief volunteerism, as well as receiving hands on training in one or more areas of disaster relief.  You will have the opportunity to complete Volunteer Packet at the training session - or download and complete it now.
 
Requirements to Volunteer  Any Southern Baptist adult or youth church member who meets the basic training requirements and desires to be a part of the MWBC Disaster Relief ministries when a disaster occurs can volunteer.  (Youth volunteers, 7th – 12th grade, can ONLY respond to disasters within Minnesota and Wisconsin).
