DISASTER MINISTRY CONFERENCE
In 2013, I founded the Disaster Ministry Conference, which I still direct. The Disaster Ministry Conference is a national conference that is quickly turning into a global event. We had participants from 15 countries in attendance at our 2016 conference. The purpose of the Disaster Ministry Conference is to equip church and lay leaders to serve amid disasters (e.g., natural disasters, refugee crises, mass shootings, acts of terrorism) domestically and internationally. The event features global leaders in disaster ministry, emergency management, humanitarian aid, public health, and mental health fields. Participants gain new knowledge, skills, and networks for effectively leading their congregations in developing disaster ministries.
