TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Why We Exist... To connect, collaborate, and coordinate together with like-minded churches and response organizations, to be prepared to serve the needs of those affected by disaster/crisis with excellence, and to create an environment to share Christ and grow the local church.
Philippians 2:1-4 - Therefore, if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
1 Peter 4:10 - Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
Guiding Principle... Strong Relationships are our foundation, and being strategic is our goal!
1. Kingdom Focused.Disaster Response is an opportunity to serve those in need which creates the environment to share the Hope we have in Jesus. It will always be our top agenda to be ministers of hope who operate in excellence, sharing Christ and connecting those we serve to the local church. We always put the purpose or the Kingdom over our organizational or church agendas in how we work together, relate, and operate.
2. We make the local Church the Hero. We recognize that the Church is God’s Plan for community and life transformation--therefore we want to make the local Church the resource, catalyst, and centerpiece of community healing and hope. We do this by using our partnership to raise their influence locally, expand their capacity, follow their lead, and promote them as the local hero.
3. We believe we are Better Together. Therefore, we value relationships and serving together as well as
one another a priority, because we share common goals. Working together expands our impact. We draw from collective wisdom, resources, and strategies. United in love we pray, encourage, support, and elevate one another.
4. We Value Uniqueness. God has called all of us as individual organizations, churches, and people. Therefore, we do not seek to control, conform, or restrict any organization, church or persons call or vision. Instead through relational collaboration, we choose to work together sharing our strengths. Thus, we look for common ground where we can link arms and serve communities well.
