The Western Jurisdiction Disaster Academy is being held in Phoenix Arizona March 28-31 of 2019. This training opportunity will connect you with trainers from UMCOR and disaster coordinators across the country who will equip and prepare you to mobilize your congregation and community to respond to whatever disaster might arise in your area.
As part of the connection of the United Methodist Church did you know that your congregation participated through giving, prayer, and relief support in nearly every major disaster that occurred worldwide in 2018? Through the United Methodist Committee on Relief the United Methodist Church is there when any disaster disrupts lives, and all that work is done by volunteers like you!
Whether you are a trained ERT, or have no idea what that means, this event is perfect for anyone looking to be prepared and assist in mobilizing during disasters.
