Have you ever thought, “I wish there was something I could do, ” as you read headlines like the following:
- “West Virginia Floods: 23 Killed”
- “10 dead in ‘Historic’ Louisiana Flooding”
- “Tornado rips through Pulaski County Friday night”
With the increasing amount of tragedies and natural disasters happening locally and around the country, it is imperative that we have an increasing amount of people trained and equipped to step up and help at any given time.
The SBC of Virginia offers training to equip Virginia churches so they are able to respond during times of disaster. Each training offers necessary instruction for volunteers to respond with folks from around the world during times of disaster and crisis. The training is practical and allows those, 18 years old and above, to serve with confidence. Because of our partnerships with FEMA, Salvation Army, Red Cross, IMB, NAMB and other SBC State Conventions, we have a credentialing process that allows us to respond to the front lines of a disaster.
On Saturday April 8, from 8-5pm, we will be taking a group of interested folks to Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Christiansburg to get trained and certified in disaster relief! The cost is $40 per person and you will receive:
- Training Materials
- DR Cap
- DR T-Shirt
- DR Identification Card
- Criminal Background Screening (Required for DR Service)
