For over 14 years, Saddleback has had an effective Disaster Relief ministry. For the first time they are providing the opportunity for other churches to learn from their experiences, by bringing this training to us! Get tips and ideas of how to set up a new DR ministry at your church. We will discuss successes, pitfalls to avoid and even the characteristics of the people who are best at leading this type of ministry. You can take what Saddleback does and how we do it and use those principles to create a ministry in your church that works for your congregation. Pizza provided from 5:30 - 6pm, training from 6-8:30pm.

Disaster Relief Volunteer Training - Presented by Saddleback Church
Date: September 21, 9:00am-5:00pm
Location: Oak Ridge Baptist Church, 361 Tilghman Road, Salisbury, MD 21804
Have you been watching disaster updates on the news and wondered if you could help? It is the desire of our Saddleback Relief Team that everyone be equipped to reach out to the suffering and displaced both here in the US and around the world. We have developed these classes to do just that!
Light breakfast snacks will be available in the morning. Lunch will be provided from 12-1pm.
9am - 12pm: Orientation: This orientation will prepare you to serve in the aftermath of these disasters, or others in the future. We will also talk about the emotional stages of what people go through in a disaster, as well as specific things you can say and do that are helpful to them. There are a variety of ways you can serve -- physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Don't wait until the next big disaster happens. This class will prepare you to respond with us quickly
1-5pm: Trauma training: Follow-up to the basic orientation which discusses more in depth the spiritual and emotional help you can give to someone in the aftermath of a disaster. You will learn the basics of how to simply enter into someone’s pain for a short time and help them process and recover from the disaster and to also notice the symptoms that may require professional counseling.
