Upcoming Texas Baptist Men Serving Opportunities

 

TBM Opportunity
Many individuals, churches and other groups, have responded to TBM’s Disaster Relief efforts due to Hurricane Harvey. As a result, there have been at least 226 professions of faith! But, we are not finished. God has opened many doors and we need to continue to minister to the lost and hurting.

Last year, TBM acquired the rebuild responsibilities of Disaster Relief from BGCT and has spent the past several months integrating it into the Disaster Relief Management System. We are now transitioning to the Rebuild stage in several locations on the Gulf Coast and have new opportunities for ALL TBM volunteers, DR trained or not. The following are the positions that need to be filled at each site:

Team Leader
Administration
Logistics
Team Workers

If you have any experience in these type positions, or if you are interested in learning, we have a place for you. All that is required is a background check and a servant’s heart; we provide the rest. You can sign up for a minimum of a week, as long as a month or even more. The following are the currently scheduled dates for rebuild:

2017
December 31 – January 6
January 6 – 13
January 13 – 20
2018
February 10 – 17

Disaster Relief Assessor Training

This training is for Yellow Cap volunteers who have been on deployment in one of the Work Order Request disciplines, including Chainsaw, Mudout/Clean Out, Ash Out, & Temporary Roof.

This course provides instruction for assessing the damage to homes and recording the damage and work needed. Assessors are usually some of the first to arrive on a disaster scene. Their job is to go out in teams of two or three to meet with homeowners and discuss the damage to their homes. They also offer hope and the love of Christ to each of the homeowners and pray with them. The completed Work Orders are passed along to the appropriate Chainsaw, Mudout/Clean Out, Ash Out, or Temporary Roof teams.

February 24 | 9 AM – 12 PM
Rockwall Campus | RM. A116
Cost: FREE | Trainer: Bill Blackwell

Registration is now open!
