An Overview of OPC Disaster Response

The primary goal of disaster response in the OPC is to restore worship within OPC churches and families, and to demonstrate the compassionate love of Christ to our neighbors.

Volunteers go to places of disaster to assist those in need. It is never clear in advance how our work will be used: it might be that an individual or the whole country gets to see a glimpse of Christianity. It is important to go as a team, no matter how large or small.
