Our History


SBC of Virginia Disaster Relief Ministry began in November 2002 with one shower unit built by Georgia men. We determined that our focus would be intentional evangelism, first, last, and always. Our goal is to go through the door God opens through disaster and minister to the victims’ spiritual needs. While we do this, we strive to meet their physical needs as well.

Missional Statement


SBC of Virginia Disaster Relief Volunteers will meet people in time of disaster and minister to their immediate needs while sharing the love of Christ.

“Yet does not one in a heap of ruins stretch out his hand, or in his disaster therefore cry out for help? Have I not wept for the one whose life is hard? Was not my soul grieved for the needy?” – (JOB 30:24-25, NASB)

Core Values for Disaster Relief


SBC of Virginia Disaster Relief Volunteers provide service, witness, ministry, comfort and hope, in the crisis of a Disaster as we seek to stand firmly on the following core values.

Service to victims of disaster, their family and friends and other disaster relief workers by striving in the love of Christ to meet their physical needs. (Matthew 25:34-36 NASB)

Witness to victims of disaster, their family and friends and other disaster relief workers. They strive to meet spiritual needs by sharing the love of Christ and the truth of the Bible and that all people may receive the salvation that faith in Him makes possible. (Acts 1:7-8 NASB)

Ministry in the name of Jesus Christ seeking to serve the victims of disaster, their family and friends and other disaster relief workers with a distinctively Christian witness of care and compassion, striving to meet spiritual needs (2 Corinthians 5:18-21)

Comfort in the name of Jesus Christ seeking to serve the victims of disaster, their family and friends and other disaster relief workers. Through the ministry of their presence and through genuine Christian love they strive to comfort those who have experienced significant emotional upheaval as the result of disaster. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NASB)

Hope in the name of Jesus Christ seeking to serve the victims of disaster, their family and friends and other disaster relief workers. They strive share a sense of hope for the future in the midst of circumstances that may seem hopeless. (1 Peter 1:13)
