United Methodist Committee on Relief

US Disaster Response Training

Called to respond to all people suffering from emergencies and disasters, United Methodists find UMCOR’s extensive training offerings support them in their churches, districts, and conferences. UMCOR’s disaster preparation and response training is available to local community partners at the request of conference disaster response coordinators. Always adapting to current U.S. Disaster response needs, UMCOR’s training courses address resilience against unpredictable weather, urgent and rapid response after a disaster, and ministry options for communities bracing for a long recovery.

Embedded in all UMCOR training is the underlying message of love and hope that The United Methodist Church offers. Because of who we are, UMCOR’s trainings embrace a ministry of presence—a loving recognition that spiritual bruises and emotional scars matter as much to us as broken doors and windows.
