Invested in Crisis Response
Our teams (1000+ trained people) respond to both domestic and international disasters meeting the specific needs of impacted communities. We carry a heart to make our knowledge and field experience available to churches and cities in crisis. We assist other leaders around the world in harnessing the strengths of the local church, being a tangible expression of God’s goodness right when it’s needed most. Together, we will face the challenges that arise, but God is able and hope is alive!
Invested in Crisis Response
We operate from and release the presence of God in crisis situations.
We are lovers of God and lovers of people with all of our being.
We honor and value partners in the field above our own agenda.
We cultivate and establish the kingdom of God here on earth.
First and foremost, we will honor the people we serve and collaborate with. We operate with permission and by invitation. We value local leaders and honor their authority and work through them as point contacts. We ask questions rather than stating opinions and value the community as a whole. We honor the structure and system of emergency management and operate to the best of our ability within that system knowing that we too are responsible.
We value relationship. Relationship with the Lord is what guides and drives us in response; disconnected from it, we lose our effectiveness. We also work with other organizations and contacts on the ground, choosing people and connection with them over an agenda.
We seek to build and encourage community. We do so by working with leaders and supporting structures that are already in place, valuing their culture and their values. We would rather support a community response than do something on our own.
Affection opens the door for healthy influence and impact. We have compassion for the individual as well as the community, valuing “the one” in front of us. Our affection springs from the Father’s love for people. We do not come in judgment of victims, responders, or events.
We seek to love and serve without an agenda. We serve individuals, communities, and other organizations regardless of race, gender, social status, affiliation, denomination, or nationality. It is our honor to serve.
Bethel Global Response is 100% sustained by donor contributions outside of any Bethel Church funding.
Partner agencies in the field are critical to the effectiveness of disaster response in any community.
