Dear Pastors and Mission Leaders,
Greetings in Christ. It is time to look ahead to the summer and beyond. Your church can have mission impact by using short-term teams. Short-term teams somewhat disappeared over these past two years. It is time to consider going on a short-term team. Here is a list of some opportunities that you might want to consider for this summer and beyond.
ReachGlobal Crisis Response teams: They are taking teams year-round to four sites now in the USA. Here are the four sites to consider.
North Carolina: More than 250,000 homes in small North Carolina towns alone have been lost to Hurricane Florence. Teams are still needed there.
Lake Charles: After two hurricanes and flooding, teams are going to Lake Charles, Louisiana to serve with crisis response staff. I led three teams there back in 2021.
Hurricane Ida: This hurricane made landfall near New Orleans, Louisiana with 145 mph destructive winds, devasting local communities. Teams are working out of Covington, LA.
Paradise fire: Paradise, California was devastated by fire that swept through their community. Reach Global crisis response started working in this city back in April 2021.
Find a champion in your church to lead a team. Registration costs are $340 per person.
