Disaster Relief Training: March 2-3 (Durham County)
If you’ve never participated in Disaster Relief before, or if you’d like to brush up on the basics, this training event is for you! Baptists on Mission Disaster Relief is a 2-day orientation to the Disaster Relief ministry which includes history, policies, procedures, and technical training in the field you choose.
Disaster Relief training is available to all believers who have a passion to serve others. Disaster response is a unique mission experience because of the sudden nature of the event, difficult conditions, and high expectations from other relief organizations and survivors.
Training will take place in the Durham area (exact location TBD). Check-in begins at 2:30pm on Friday, March 2. Classes run from 4:30pm-10:00pm on Friday. We’ll finish on Saturday, March 3 by 3:00pm. Lodging and meals are provided as part of this training event.
*Please note that if you cannot arrive in time to check-in and start class on time, you’ll be unable to participate in this training event. To register for this training event, please fill out the form below and click "submit" when finished:

Great Commission Offering
What is it? This is a special offering that our church collects throughout the year. 100% of all money given to this offering directly supports the missions work of our three ministry partners, each of which allows our church to have a tangible missions impact locally, across the state, and around the world. We support these partners in mission because of their commitment to:
- Spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
- Ministering to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of God's children.
- Equipping women and men for missions engagement.
Who does it support?
Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Global Missionaries: giving towards the Great Commission Offering helps sustain the long-term presence of missionaries in the places where God has called them to serve.
Baptists on Mission: giving towards the Great Commission Offering sustains important local, state, and international ministries like disaster relief, church planting, medical missions, and more.
Raleigh Rescue Mission: giving towards the Great Commission Offering transforms the lives of homeless men, women, and children here in Raleigh by ministering to their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
How can I give towards the Great Commission Offering? To support this offering, you can either give online, or by designating your cash/check donation towards the "Great Commission Offering."
What's our goal for 2018? Our goal for this offering in 2018 is $45,000. Divided among our three missions partners, that would translate into an impact of $15,000 for each.
