SBTC Launches Texas Relief

Grapevine, TX—Recognizing the great needs all along the Texas coast following the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, Southern Baptists of Texas Convention (SBTC) will be working to mobilize churches and volunteers through what is being called Texas Relief (TXR).  

This new long-term program will go beyond the scope of what disaster relief does.

“Texas Relief is specifically a part of sending volunteers to areas that need help that are not disaster relief-trained,” said Lance Crowell, Church ministry associate helping out in this new area.

He explained they are trying to mirror how the North American Mission Board mobilizes churches and volunteers through Send Relief.

“What NAMB is thinking nationally about Send Relief we were trying to develop our own avenue in Texas,” said Crowell.
