Orientation & Preparedness Training

Thank you for your interest in ADRN.  ADRN is comprised of Greater Austin churches with thousands of volunteers trained, equipped and prepared to meet the physical, emotional & spiritual needs of survivors of disaster.  Our mission, to positively impact those affected by disaster by revealing the love of Jesus, is carried out by preparing our volunteers and empowering them to use their gifts to serve others in times of need.

Disaster occurs and instantly communities and lives are changed. We believe that in the moments following the initial disaster, ADRN can have a powerful impact. To be prepared and ready, ADRN has created training pathways that help our volunteers identify their strengths and allows our volunteers to choose how to best use their gifts. Whatever level of involvement, whether you are interested in volunteering time with our staff, deploying, becoming a Chaplain or assisting families, ADRN welcomes you. Our introductory class, ADRN Orientation & Preparedness Training will provide answers to your initial questions and to help you find your comfort level of support within our organization.
