UOVBA Disaster Relief


When you’ve seen a disaster on the news in the last 50 years, what you may not have seen is the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief (SBDR) volunteers who were already on the scene—and they remained long after news cameras left town. As the third-largest disaster response team in the nation, this network of state-based volunteer teams does more than just clean up; they bring the healing of Christ to those whose lives have been shattered.

Christians are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and we want to be ready to answer that call. The DR ministry is exactly that – a ministry, a mission field. If you talk to those that have been deployed to a disaster, they will often tell you how they were blessed while serving others. Their testimonies often make grown men and women cry.


We are looking for men and women interested in serving Christ by serving others through disaster relief. If you would like to receive more information or schedule an informational meeting, then please fill out the survey below. Once you complete this form the UOVBA Disaster Relief Team Leader, Roy Polmanteer will contact you to see how you can best serve.
