Southeast United States Tornado Disaster Relief


April 15, 2020

Late on Sunday, April 12, a powerful storm system produced multiple tornadoes that struck the Southeast United States. As the storm released its destruction in multiple states, it also caused significant damage in Chattanooga and the Tennessee Valley and in North Georgia. At least 33 people have died in the Southeast United States due to the severe weather and dozens of tornadoes were reported to officials.

Because numerous independent Baptist church buildings and facilities were hard hit with storm damage, Baptist International Missions, Inc., has already started the process of assisting some of the churches by providing donated disaster relief funds. As the cleanup and rebuilding process takes place, donated contributions will continue to be used to repair and rebuild independent Baptist church buildings and ministry facilities. Though many of the churches have insurance coverage, there will be deductibles that have to be met for facilities to be fully restored. These deductible amounts can run into thousands of dollars.

We will also use donated funds to assist storm-hit independent Baptist churches as they rebuild their congregations through various outreach efforts after their facilities are repaired. You may contribute online or your contribution may be sent to the following:

In the early morning hours of Tuesday March 3, a powerful storm system produced at least four tornadoes that struck Central Tennessee. This storm system caused significant damage near downtown Nashville as well as in Donelson, Mt. Juliet, and Cookeville, Tennessee. So far there have been at least 24 deaths reported and many are still missing. We are asking God’s people to help us help those who are on the front lines, providing disaster relief and assistance and ministering to families who have lost everything and to those who have lost family members.

As in the past, disaster relief funding that we receive is being sent directly to independent Baptist churches that are involved in providing immediate help and assistance for people in need in the storm hit areas. As the cleanup and rebuilding process takes place, funds are then used to repair and rebuild Baptist church buildings and ministry facilities. We also use funds to assist storm hit churches as they rebuild their congregations through various outreach efforts after facilities are repaired. You may contribute online or your contribution may be sent to the following:
