Preparation is the best form of disaster response. All members of the NCBM Disaster Relief Team have been through our training. You don't have to be trained to participate in some portions of our response, however, we highly recommend that you become a part of the team. Our preference, of course, is that everyone go through a training in order to understand the guidelines for response: policies, procedures, safety, etc.

Motivation of NCBM Disaster Relief
The motivation behind NC Baptist Disaster Relief efforts can be summed up by looking at biblical accounts of Jesus teaching and healing, such as: His feeding the multitudes, the parable of the Good Samaritan, and urging us to serve others in a variety of ways. (Matthew 14:19-21, Luke 10, Matthew 25:32-46, Matthew 5:14-16, Ephesians 2:10, James 2:15-16).
