Hurricane Dorian Response

ReachGlobal Crisis Response is ready to respond in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.

Sep 4, 2019


ReachGlobal Crisis Response, along with the Southeast District of the Evangelical Free Church of America and other church partners, continues to monitor Hurricane Dorian’s path, and we are poised for a response in the event of a mainland U.S. landfall.

Southeast District Superintendent, Glen Schrieber, describes how many in his district feel about the impact of Dorian.

"Hurricanes are disrupting at best and devastating at worst, and that’s why our hearts and prayers go out to those in the Bahamas and all the people enduring this hardship. Please pray for those of us in Florida and along the East Coast. Our congregations are as prepared as they can be. We’re waiting to see which path Dorian will take. Pray that we will respond appropriately. Thank you Crisis Response for always watching our back and being there when we need you.”

At the present time, ministry relationships are limited in the Bahamas, which hinders Crisis Response in their ability to quickly respond to needs through local EFCA churches. We ask that you would continue to pray for those in the Bahamas, and consider contributing to the general Crisis Response Hurricane Fund, which will help support ongoing efforts to serve those who have been affected by Dorian’s devastation.

Crisis Response will provide more information following a damage assessment.

Pray

  • For Hurricane Dorian to head out to sea and not have an impact on the East Coast of the U.S.
  • For provisions of food, water and shelter for those impacted in the Bahamas.
  • If there is an East Coast landfall, pray that the impact would be minor and the outreach for the gospel would be great.
  • That our partner churches and the Southeast District of the EFCA will be well-prepared for this storm.

Give

  • Give to the Hurricane Fund.
