As a Disaster Relief volunteer, you help bring Help, Hope and Healing to those touched by a disaster as you are the hands and feet of Jesus. It looks like disasters will continue to happen at an ever-increasing rate. Last year, our Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers served countless hours in recovery efforts for three tornadoes, straight line winds, hurricanes, floods and local responses.
