In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey hit Texas.  EFCA ReachGlobal Crisis Response is in Texas and is working with EFCA churches.  The mission of ReachGlobal is to show God’s love and compassion through hurricane relief and recovery, for the purpose of outreach, evangelism, and church planting.  Their plan is to be assisting Texas in rebuilding (physically, emotionally, spiritually) for long-term impact.  We will meet Crisis Response staff and home owners and serve for two days in Houston.

We hope that after being in Houston on this vision trip, you will be motivated to bring a team from your church to serve in Houston in the future.  Come and join with us in this life impacting event.
