With an second significant hurricane making landfall in the United States shortly after Hurricane Harvey, EFCA ReachGlobal Crisis Response is reaching out to churches in the storm's path, with multiple EFCA churches affected.
However, because the storm did not impact EFCA churches on a large scale, there is no need to mobilize teams.
The EFCA Southeast District district superintendent, Glen Schrieber, is in Naples, Florida working alongside EFCA pastors and churches to coordinate clean-up efforts.
Crisis Response has come alongside the district to help them mobilize local responses by local churches, mainly focused on yard and tree clean up. Money given to the Hurricane Response fund allowed Crisis Response to respond immediately, providing assessment and direction to the movement.
The team is coordinating with member churches of the Crisis Response Mobilize Network for their support of this hurricane response in the coming weeks. Crisis Response is also looking for financial partners to aid in current and future prepation and response to crises.

The mission of EFCA ReachGlobal Crisis Response
We exist to develop, empower and release the Body of Christ to share His love in times of crisis for multiplying transformational churches among all people.
To advance this mission, Crisis Response seeks to aid in the development and transformation of:
- Local churches as they will be in the community long after the crisis ends.
- Homeowners in the affected areas, who can then transform their neighborhoods.
- Volunteers as they take what they have learned home to affect their own churches and communities with the gospel message.
