BASIC training event 2018!

If you've never trained with us before, you're in the right place. NCBM Disaster Relief Basic is a 2 day orientation to the Disaster Relief ministry which includes history, policies, procedures, and technical training in the field you choose.

NCBM Disaster Relief Training is available to all believers who have a passion to serve others.  Disaster response is a unique mission experience because of the sudden nature of the event, difficult conditions, and high expectations from other relief organizations and survivors.  We hope you desire to serve God in this type of ministry and that you fulfill that desire through NCBM Disaster Relief.

Background Checks are required for all disaster relief volunteers (including those already trained). During the online registration process you will be given additional information on how to proceed.  Afterwards you will receive additional information instructing you on next steps for registration completion and payment. 

The background check process occurs every three years for NCBM Disaster Relief volunteers.
