For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, – Matthew 25:35
Are you looking for your unique way to make a difference in God’s Kingdom? Disaster preparedness and recovery ministry may be just the right niche. All eyes are on the need when disaster strikes, but to effectively bring the hope and grace of God to people in crisis, preparation plays a vital role. We need people who “get it” to serve with us during the preparedness phase.
Disaster Resource Alliance focuses on empowering churches by providing resources to engage their community through preparedness education and supplies. In the process, the church establishes a reputation as a resource, a place of comfort and hope for their neighbors. When the community is thrust into a crisis, people will turn to the church that helped them take steps to prepare – some will need more help, others will offer to help. DRA helps churches discover practical ways to transition everyday ministries to meet new, disaster-related needs. We also assist to identify specific disaster ministry opportunities for which the church is well-suited, such as sheltering or food distribution.
To accomplish these goals, Disaster Resource Alliance needs YOU! Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few: Matthew 9:39. Many of our volunteer positions can be fulfilled from the comfort of your home; some will take place on-site at an event. How will you be a part of what God is doing through DRA?
For more information or to volunteer, use our contact form or call (714) 497-3720. We look forward to partnering with you!
DRA welcomes individuals who are not associated with a partner organization to be a part of our Alliance. As with our partner organizations, we expect Individual Partners to have an interest in building disaster resilience into our communities. Christian faith is not a requirement as long as you accept that we operate on Christian principles and respect that our conversations and practices will reflect our Christian beliefs. Obvious examples are that prayer and references to Bible verses are common practices in our meetings.
For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is furfilled in one word: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." – Galatians 5:13-14
