Sending Teams in Mission

Disaster Recovery – Texas and Puerto Rico

When Hurricane Harvey brought record flooding to the Texas coast (and beyond) in 2017, Disciples responded across the impact zone. It is difficult to overstate the size and scope of this disaster. The recovery will take years. For more information about the response to Hurricane Harvey, visit this Texas Recovery page.

Many general ministries and local congregations of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) continue to support out brothers and sisters in the Iglesia Cristiana (Discípulos de Cristo) in Puerto Rico. Through Programa Edifiquemos, they are ready to receive mission groups who travel as ambassadors to Puerto Rico to repair homes and learn from the people of Puerto Rico about life in this U.S. Territory. More information is at this Puerto Rico recovery page (or here en Español).

A number of other communities also stand ready to receive your mission team and put them to work. Over the past two years, a significant number of disasters did not make lasting headlines. Alongside the needs in Texas, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands, please consider sending a team to one of the following communities.

North Carolina

Hurricane Florence wrought significant flooding across a significant portion of North Carolina. Disciples are responding long term in partnership with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in North Carolina, which has made housing available for work teams at Camp Caroline. For more information, click over to Camp Caroline’s information page. You can also contact Casey Perry, Camp Manager.
