As the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey heightens awareness of the slow pace of disaster recovery, the need for church engagement is becoming far more evident. The Summit is an ideal opportunity for church leaders to collaborate with other organizations, learn from disaster response experts, and be inspired to engage in helping to restore their communities. Recovery organizations will be able to learn best practices from church and non-profit leaders to expand local church support and volunteer engagement.
