Becoming a Life-Sustaining Church™
God designs local churches to give life through the gospel of Jesus Christ. But when disaster strikes, He also calls us to love our neighbors in life-sustaining ways (Luke 10:30-37). Is your church ready to serve others well when crises or catastrophes occur?
ADRN invites your local church to chart a course through five Life-Sustaining Church™ levels and be ready to serve disaster survivors. Groups of churches also coordinate in city “sectors” to form a Life-Sustaining Church Network™ with the support of ADRN Sector Leaders. Together, we build relationships, gather resources, and train congregations in disaster response through the I AM Ready™ Program.
This remarkable collaboration forms a unified entity to partner with local officials and other disaster relief organizations. As local churches unite, we put Jesus’ love on display (John 13:35), bring hope into crisis, and invite God to move through us to transform our city.
