Disaster Relief Ministry
Leader: Bud Wills

When disaster strikes, some of the first to respond to help are Southern Baptist disaster relief volunteers. Kentucky has an active disaster relief program which works in concert with similar programs in other states. Whether the disaster occurs in the state of Kentucky or elsewhere in the nation or the world, Kentucky volunteers may be called out to help.

More than 2,000 individuals are trained as disaster relief workers in Kentucky. Kentucky volunteers can staff feeding units designed to deliver thousands of hot meals on short notice, move in with chainsaws to help remove debris, do the dirty work of helping families remove mud from flooded homes and provide many other disaster relief services.

Southern Baptist efforts are correlated primarily with the American Red Cross, and with other private agencies through NVOAD, (the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster.)

 

Coordinated through the KBC and NKBA, Bud Wills leads this ministry. Please see Bud if you would like to be involved.
