Disaster & Emergency Response with LORENZO BOTELLO
The Church has a unique ministry during and after a disaster. Disasters provide some of the greatest opportunities to minister to the needs of the community. The Church’s involvement (or lack of involvement speaks) volumes and leaves a lasting imprint upon the lives of those directly affected by disaster. As both community members and follower of Jesus, we have the responsibility to ensure our community is prepared.
Speaker Lorenzo Botello helped found Disaster & Emergency Response (DER) to prepare churches for serving the community. In collaboration with public and private agencies (including American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, Kern County Office of Emergency Services, Kern County Department of Public Health, Bakersfield Fire Department, and San Joaquin Community Hospital), DER trains and mobilizes churches to serve as shelters, staging areas, and distribution centers for disaster relief. Currently 150 churches are participating in the community-wide strategic initiative. Join us to hear about the exciting progress DER has made and where they are heading.January 15th 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. Hodel’s Country Dining 5917 Knudsen Drive
