Rapid Response Services

When a tornado, flood, or wildfire strikes an area in the United States, a Rapid Response team is on standby to investigate damages within 24 hours. If cleanup help is needed, they coordinate volunteers to help within 48 hours. Cleanup projects include cutting up trees, cleaning up debris, tearing out soggy insulation, and putting tarps on damaged roofs. These projects afford opportunities to minister the love and comfort of Jesus in a time of loss.
