Tornado & Flood Disaster Relief



May 28, 2019

As spring gives way to summer, many communities are picking up the pieces after historic flooding and deadly tornadoes have hit vast sections of the United States. The destruction is so widespread and the need is now so great, we have decided to continue to raise funds for storm hit and flooded regions of the country and do all we can to assist churches and people in the worst affected areas of the country.

As in the past, any disaster relief funding that we receive will be sent directly to independent Baptist churches who would be 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:

On Sunday, March 3, 2019, an EF–4 tornado with winds up to 170 miles an hour slammed into Southeast Alabama and moved on into parts of Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida. The storm damage in the hardest hit areas has been described as “catastrophic” and it resulted in at least 23 deaths and dozens of people with injuries, who were sent to hospitals throughout the storm hit region.

On March 14, 2019, a “bomb cyclone” hit a large portion of Nebraska and the United States Central Plains. As a result of this storm, the region experienced historic flooding along the Missouri and Platte Rivers, causing two deaths and the loss of livestock, homes, roads, retail buildings, highways, and bridges. Flooding is expected to be an ongoing problem due to the frozen ground that prohibits the water from soaking into the soil.

As in the past, any disaster relief funding that we receive will be sent directly to independent Baptist churches who would be 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 rebuild their congregations through various outreach efforts after facilities are repaired.
