Local Church Disaster Response Contact
We need your help! Are you ready to make a difference?
Disaster Ministries is seeking a Local Church Disaster Response (LCDR) Contact from each local church within the NC Conference. The LCDR contact will serve as a vital point of contact for us to reach out to in the event of a disaster. By having a contact from each local church, we can enhance our response efforts and communication.
Please complete our Local Church Disaster Response Contact form to help us better serve our community in times of need.
Disaster Response Efforts in Edgecombe County
Teams from across the Conference have been working in Nash and Edgecombe counties to assist with debris removal following the tornado in July. Families are still in need of assistance to remove debris and repair damages to their homes.
