- God’s glory. Jesus said, “Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
- Your church’s reputation. The reputation of your church will be strengthened as you practice loving people unconditionally by meeting basic needs with no strings attached
- Unity in the community. Widespread disasters often bring unity to fragmented communities as they work to overcome their circumstances. God’s people can be in the mix, building relationships and bringing the hope of the Gospel into new friendships.
- Deep friendship. As church members respond to disasters together, friendships will grow and people who feel disconnected from others can quickly become integrated into the life of your church.
- Unmasked brokenness. Reality’s brokenness can go unnoticed when material wealth abounds and technology flourishes. Man-made and natural disasters unmask this brokenness.
The men and women who started SBCV Disaster Relief built a tremendous legacy of loving and serving in the name of Jesus. Many of them are still serving even as they enter their late 70s and early 80s.
To continue the legacy, we need you. We need new volunteers to join the army of wearing yellow shirts. Some of them may be sitting in your pews waiting to be asked.
It’s never been easier to get involved. Go to www.sbcv.org/dr to learn more or to find a training near you.
