Global Reach Crisis Response

EFCA ReachGlobal Crisis Response is uniquely positioned to bring the hope of Christ following Hurricane Harvey.

The full extent of the storm’s impact on families and communities served by local EFCA churches across the Texas coast is still unknown.  Initial assessments show almost every EFCA church in the Houston region (15 total) has families flooded out of homes, and extensive damage in the communities in which they serve.

More information will be available in the coming days. For updates on our response to Hurricane Harvey, to give online and to volunteer, visit efca.org/hurricaneharvey.

Pray

For peace and provision for the many families experiencing flooding who attend EFCA churches in the Houston area, as well as friends and neighbors. For local EFCA recovery and gospel outreach efforts to reach the hurting and the lost.For effective service and outreach opportunities to the city’s many immigrants and refugees, as Houston is the most racially and ethnically diverse city of the 10 largest U.S. metropolitan areas. For the Church across the country to mobilize people and resources for a sustained, long-term response.

Serve

Organize a team to serve affected families, invest in relationships, and impact Houston with the gospel. Teams of limited size will be accepted beginning Sunday, September 17. Email
respond@efca.org for more information.

Give

Given the extent of the damage in Houston, and the surrounding area, the EFCA’s goal is to raise $1 million for response efforts.
