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.  email: to ask about dates to go.
