In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey hit Texas. EFCA REACHGLOBAL Crisis Response is already in Texas and will be working with EFCA churches. The mission of ReachGlobal is working with Texas EFC churches 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 rebuild (physically, emotionally, spiritually) for long term impact.

Living every moment as a conduit for Christ can be life changing in this fertile environment.
