Since 1967, tbm has been responding to disasters in texas and beyond. That continues today as we serve in texas, travel internationally for global crises, and help rebuild homes, lives, and communities affected by disaster.
All of TBM’s Disaster Relief ministries operate out of the Love that Christ has for each and every person. Our purpose is to share Christ’s love through meeting needs and can be summed up in a single phrase: "a cup of cold water in Jesus' name."
Disaster Relief Teams
Provides spiritual and emotional care to deployed volunteers and survivors impacted by a disaster. While everyone on mission with TBM is a witness, some key individuals have special training to answer some of life’s most challenging questions.
Temporary yet fully-functional daycare serving newborns up to age 7 through which God’s love is shown to children (and parents) by caring for the entire family after disaster strikes. This provides safe care for children while parents begin re-assembling their property and lives.
Serving hot, well-prepared meals to those affected by disaster shows love and care as well as sustenance needed during stressful times. Working alongside the State of Texas, FEMA, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and local churches we meet the physical needs by offering a meal in Jesus’ name and meeting emotional needs through prayer and a listening ear. All TBM feeding procedures follow ServSafe practices.
Taking our abilities, knowledge, and faith worldwide when invited by local officials to help recover and rebuild after a natural disaster anywhere on earth.
