United Methodist churches understand, in a foundational way, that our mission is to be the transformation the world needs. Our calling leads us to enter into disaster preparedness and response as followers of Christ who earnestly seek to live our faith in ways that can transform communities and the lives of those who are our neighbors. We must continually strive to become better than we are. That’s done by building competent local strength; by attracting, training and managing our volunteers better; by preparing our families, churches and communities to be better prepared for disaster; by being true to our collective mission.
There are many ways that you and your church can be involved in this dynamic ministry. This web page was designed to allow you to access information on all things disaster related. From basic information on disasters and UMCOR to training calendars, downloads of forms as well as detailed overviews of the disaster preparedness and response programs that are offered through the Rocky Mountain Conference.
