Volunteers In Mission Training

First UMC Johnson City
Now that we are well into the initial phase of early response (ERT) to Hurricane Harvey, it’s time to begin planning and training for the long-term recovery which will last for the next two years or more. This event will train and qualify volunteers for DISASTER RECOVERY TEAMS to go into affected localities to perform extensive repairs and reconstruction of homes, churches, and other buildings, in contrast to the work done by Early Response Teams. Ideally, we hope a team from a local church or from several nearby churches will sign up for this training, but it is also for individuals who want to be trained and are willing to be assigned to a team working in a particular locality.
For those of you who were not able to put your feet on the ground in the initial stages of this disaster in the Coastal Bend, please consider registering for this training event.
Cost of the training:
Church teams can pay for one (1) manual and then just for lunch per person. Any of the team wanting their own manual will have to pay $25
You may mail payment to Hill Country District or pay at the door. If you have any questions feel free to contact:
