Join the ministry that helps our brothers and sisters recover after a disaster. Partnering with the Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN), volunteers train in various ways to be better prepared for a disaster so that they can better serve the community. 

There is a place for everyone to assist in disaster relief, from working in the field, walking with those affected by the disaster (shepherding), helping coordinate, assisting the ADRN Thrift Store, HAM Radio operators, etc.
