Disaster Relief

The Disaster Relief Ministry of HBN is a ministry comprised of trained volunteers who are committed to share the hope of Jesus with those whose lives have been impacted by disasters. Currently the Disaster Relief Ministry provides ministry through Feeding, Clean-up and Recovery, Chaplaincy, and Communications, Operations, Shower/Laundry and Childcare.

When disaster occur, volunteer teams may be asked to mobilize in Illinois, North America, or internationally, depending on the nature and scope of the disaster.  One or more or all seven ministry areas may be asked to deploy, again depending on the nature of the disaster.  In order to be deployed by the IBSA, volunteers must have completed training. 

The HBN Team provides help, healing and hope to victims that are suffering and cannot alleviate their suffering without assistance.

Bro. Andy Muller is HBN's Disaster Relief Director. The Team attempts to provide assistance for local residences and those around the world. If you need help cal Bro. Andy.
