CONGREGATIONAL DISASTER READINESS

 

WILL YOUR CONGREGATION RESPOND WHEN DISASTER STRIKES?

The Willing & Able Congregational Disaster Readiness program exists to help congregations prepare for disaster and coordinate their response with other local congregations.

Why Should Congregations Get Ready?

How Can Your Congregation Get Ready?

Readiness is Biblical  As Proverbs 13:16 says, “a wise person plans ahead.” 

Readiness is Essential – Disaster response agencies cannot do it all. Often, the “hole” in disaster response is simply people caring for their neighbors – the very thing God’s people are called to do. 
 

Readiness is Transformational – Disaster response ministry opens doors to loving our neighbors that could happen no other way and can powerfully transform both receivers, givers, congregations, and entire communities.

Step 1: Willing to Respond to Disaster – Affirm that your congregation is willing to respond by registering at the "Register" button below. 

Step 2: Able to Be in Regular Communication – Identify a point of contact, or Disaster Response Coordinator (DRC) for your congregation. This enables your congregation to be in communication. This is critical to effective disaster response. You do not need a DRC to register.

Step 3: Ready to Serve When Disaster Strikes – Consider how your congregation will serve when disaster strikes. Your local disaster response coalition can help you get ready. 

Complete the brief registration and someone will be in touch with more information and next steps.

HELP US ENGAGE CONGREGATIONS!

To execute a coordinated and comprehensive response to disaster in our communities, we must have as many congregations as possible working together through the Willing & Able program.

We have developed promotional resources for you to use to invite congregations to participate. Together we can dramatically improve Greater Houston's ability to respond to future disasters.
