Maryland/Delaware Why We Do What We Do
Serving Christ in Crisis:
To share the love of Christ with people in need immediately following a disaster event.
A disaster hits suddenly and with it the opportunity for immediate ministry. There seems to be no area of mission action that requires more rapid response than during times of disaster. Southern Baptist Disaster Relief is Christian love in action - meeting urgent needs of humanity in crisis situations.
The disaster relief response team can provide direction for individual Christians and churches desiring to be of service in times of disaster. Through planning, training, and practicing, disaster response teams can provide leadership and expertise required in times of disaster.
Motivation - "A cup of cold water in Jesus' name."
