Disaster Relief and Refugees

Have you ever watched news of a natural disaster and wished that you could do something to step into the pain of those affected? Do you wish you could help the millions who have had to flee their homes due to persecution, violence, or war? While these seem like overwhelming issues, the truth is you don’t have to be a professional to come alongside the hurting.

Learn how you and your church can step into the needs of those struggling in the aftermath of tragedy. Get practical training to equip yourself and others to serve local churches on the ground – from where to get started, to how to triage needs, and how to provide much-needed emotional support. Learn trauma counseling skills from leaders who have implemented them in cross-cultural settings both in the US and abroad.

Hear the best practice tips from leaders who mobilized and worked alongside local churches in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Michael, Irma, Maria, the California wildfires, the Sri Lankan church bombings, and Cyclone Fani in India.
