Resurrection Disaster Relief – Resurrection Disaster Relief (RDR) formed in Fall 2011 after a mission trip to Amory, MS. While there a team of volunteers saw lives healed through the rebuilding of homes. Our goal is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and to be His hands and feet. The book of Hebrews, chapter 3 verse 4 states “For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God”. We believe that it is through God that this team and mission is possible. Our purpose is to show the love of Jesus when disaster strikes… natural, spiritual, physical, mental, or financial. Resurrection Disaster Relief is a volunteer-based non-denominational ministry rebuilding homes and lives.
