Disaster Response

When disaster strikes, United Methodists respond.

The conference Disaster Response Team offers training, in conjunction with the United Methodist Committee on Relief, for those wishing to become certified in this important ministry. When disasters occur, those who are certified are then called upon to help in crisis situations around the region, the country and the world.
