When a hurricane, tornado or other disaster strikes, our natural instinct is to reach out and help those who have been affected. Through TBM Disaster Relief, now you can. Volunteer and deliver help, hope and healing.

Ministering in the wake of a disaster can be an emotionally, physically and spiritually draining experience. That’s why it requires specialized training so you can best serve others and share the hope of Christ. The classes help volunteers understand how disaster relief teams work, teach critical skills and build fellowship amongst the group.

Serving after disasters is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

All TBM disaster relief volunteers are required to take the Disaster Relief Orientation course, which provides the basic foundation of disaster relief ministry as well as a background check. Completion of this course earns you a badge, your ticket to serve on a variety of relief teams such as mass feeding, chainsaw, mud out and box distribution to name a few. You can earn all the training you need in 24 hours during a TBM Disaster Relief Orientation Weekend.


Connect with your coordinator. During the orientation, you’ll discover who your area coordinator is. That person will be important to know because they’ll help you know when teams are activated and deployed for service.


 

When a disaster strikes, let your coordinator know if you’re available to serve. If you are, the coordinator very well could call you to respond.
