The Arkansas Baptist State Convention (ABSC) will offer disaster relief (DR) training beginning in February. Ten training events will be held at various locations across Arkansas.
The ABSC DR ministry is an outreach to people and communities who are affected by disasters. There are more than 2,900 DR volunteers in Arkansas.
Through the training events, participants will have the opportunity to be trained to work in communications as well as with feeding, shower/laundry and chainsaw/recovery units. Every three years, volunteers must renew their certification by attending one of these training events.
The events also provide an opportunity for new volunteers to learn about the DR ministry.
“This event is a good time to introduce someone to everything DR offers,” said Randy Garrett, ABSC missions team member. “This is a practical way for Arkansas Baptists to help others in times of need.”
