Disaster Relief

The Disaster Relief Ministry’s goal is to lead Manatee Southern Baptists to serve shoulder to shoulder to bring Help, Healing and Hope in Times of Disaster.


Help ~ By ministering to physical needs through removing downed trees from homes, securing tarps over roofs and doing what necessary to make a dwelling safe and secure.

Healing ~ By ministering to emotional needs through spending time with, listening to and caring for disaster survivors.

Hope ~ By ministering to spiritual needs through sharing the gospel by our example, words and literature, and connecting people to local churches.


For more information about training events please contact Rev. Ed Moss at 941-219-9211, Tom Cole at 941-720-8485.
