INTRODUCTION TO CHURCH DISASTER PLANNING CLASS
The Introduction to Church Disaster Planning provides an opportunity for church members to learn the basic steps to prepare a church disaster plan. The class prepares you for the more extensive two day follow up class at your church, the UMCOR Connecting Neighbors Program. Learn how to lead your church through the process in creating the actual plan to preserve your church in a disaster. Be part of the solution and not part of the problem. Put your church in charge of your own response. For more information on this class see the introduction here.
Fee is $25 per person.
CONNECTING NEIGHBORS LEADERSHIP TRAINING PROGRAM (Local Church Readiness Training)
This is a Train-the-Trainer Program designed to teach conference representatives how to help local churches develop a disaster ministry. Churches can better provide a caring Christian response to local disasters if they have prepared their church families and facility before disaster occurs. Connecting Neighbors addresses the faith community's responsibility in disaster readiness and response and suggests tools to meet individual and community needs. Leaders are taught how to present the Connecting Neighbors program, how to connect the church to outside resources and to the community’s emergency plans; where the church fits in and how the church can help the community at large. Participants are given all the tools necessary to present a meaningful program to local churches and to assist the local congregation in developing a disaster ministry.
Fee is $40 per person.
Volunteers play a critical role in any disaster recovery effort. The local church and community can provide hospitality and meaningful service by hosting volunteers in disaster response and recovery efforts. Participants learn how to manage volunteers so those volunteers can contribute effectively and find great personal rewards through their work. This workshop will help prepare you for providing volunteer housing, food, transportation, recreation, and affirmation.
Fee is $40 per person.
