The disaster relief ministry assists fellow Christians and churches who have been affected by disaster

We provide housing, labor, food medical needs and/ or monetary assistance in regional, state and local bases to alleviate pain and suffering.



Cyclone Gabrielle, similar to a hurricane, struck New Zealand and has been labeled the worst storm to hit New Zealand this century – with winds reaching 90 miles per hour and excessive rain (half the annual rainfall in the past 3-4 weeks) causing flash floods and mudslides.

Justin and Jennifer Cherry, missionaries in Auckland, New Zealand, have shared that this is a catastrophic event – thousands of people have been displaced by damaged or destroyed homes, some have died, and 4,000 people remain unaccounted for. The Cherry’s are hopeful as they see the community coming together and they have opportunities to show God’s love in action. 

We can support their ministries and disaster relief efforts through prayer and giving:

Back2School Project: local schools are asking for supplies for 120 – 1,000 students who have lost everything.

Food Bank: Donations have not been able to keep up with the need for food.

Grief Counseling: Justin is working closely with a body recovery task force and with local schools to provide grief counseling for the community.

Please hold Justin and Jennifer in prayer as they provide support to those around them who are grieving, suffering in their loss, and rebuilding.

No matter how little or much, any amount given will go a long way in helping to meet the needs of the community.
