CHRISTIAN EMERGENCY RESPONSE 911 (c) Newburgh Theological Seminary, Newburgh College of the Bible

 

Crises, disasters in every proportion, these are the days in which we live.  Disasters, various emergencies and even terroristic activities threaten our people; even our churches.  When we, the church, are called upon to respond, are we ready? Even with a heart full of desire, Christian people, in most cases, do not know how to respond. Entire communities, in many cases, are unprepared for sudden natural or man-made disasters. Crises affect our world and we must prepare to meet the needs they create.  This degree program is designed to prepare you, then assist you, in the preparation of your church and community before another 911 comes along.

 

Each text requires a ten to twenty page review summary of the text. This should be emailed to schoolassignment@aol.com for grading. Please tell us what the book says, what you learned and how this may be helpful to you in your ministry and service.
