Join the response efforts


  • For church leaders to have wisdom in how to lead the church and their communities in response to this tragedy.
  • For the churches and families who have lost their homes to the fire and for many displaced and awaiting word on their houses.
  • For compassionate outreach by local churches to those finding shelter in their facilities.
  • For wisdom in assessing the damage and for the Western District and ReachGlobal Crisis Response in determining next steps.


Because of the multiple natural disasters, the Crisis Response team is spread thin. We are looking for individuals interested in serving as a part of our response team for the longer term. Email to learn more about these opportunities. Churches or individuals who are considering organizing teams should email to be put on a list for the future if the local churches decide that outside resources are needed for the response.
