Crisis Response for Local Networks

Natural and man made disasters are rising significantly around the world. In particular, the United States has seen an increase in natural disasters and their devastating effects on lives and communities. When these disasters strike, the church should be prepared to respond with knowledge and compassion to provide aid and to share the gospel.

Antecessor provides a two-day training course in local communities on disaster preparedness and response. The course is designed for movers and shakers, or what we call catalysts, in local churches which can mobilize others and form community networks before and after disasters strike.

Participants in the intensive two-day workshop will learn from those who have experienced major catastrophes first-hand, and will leave feeling equipped to act confidently and rapidly as catalysts for future disasters both domestically and internationally.
