DISASTER RESPONSE

HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The Vision

PCCR is excited to launch a stateside disaster relief program! The purpose of this program is threefold: to train and equip our youth, to activate the church, and to impact our nation.

Our goal is to send leaders trained and equipped to respond to crises within the US and then build on that training and experience for further development to send them into more intense situations internationally.

The Truck

When a disaster strikes, homes are destroyed. Our mission is to help the homeless rebuild their lives and find a home again. There is typically nowhere for our crews to find lodging. PCCR has found a truck that would suit our needs perfectly. Please consider helping us through prayer or financial support.

The Trailer

Having the right tools to get the help effectively is a challenge. Getting the right tools to the right location is another challenge. PCCR has found a trailer that offers everything PCCR needs. Would you consider helping make it possible for PCCR to help those in need by committing your prayers or financial support?

Disaster Response Training

Our organizational vision has always been to use disasters as a means to take the gospel into areas that would otherwise be closed and hostile towards us. We believe it is our responsibility to put our volunteers in the best position to succeed in whatever crisis they respond to and in whatever country that might be.

The 12-day training will be held in Pennsylvania and West Virginia on a quarterly basis starting August 2021.
