ERT mission teams respond to natural disasters across the country, bringing Christian presence of hope when a home has been damaged. We remove debris and salvage belongings to create a safe, sa­­­­­­nitary, and secure home. Other times we work in a disaster center helping them make necessary decisions or meeting their special needs. We work with many other religious, government, and secular organizations to mitigate their losses.

In wildfire, we help in the aftermath as we show them how to sift the ash, and stand with them as they say goodbye to their homes. Some ERTs make ash screens for survivors. We learn to do all this correctly and safely.

Since 2011 the Desert Southwest Conference has sent teams annually wherever the disasters happen. Be part of the fun, and part of the solution. Christ called us to MISSION.
