We are missionaries with ReachGlobal Crisis Response and are deployed to Corpus Christi, TX ministering to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Our previous deployments have been to New Orleans, Staten Island, and Hilton Head and Columbia, SC. ReachGlobal Crisis Response exists to develop, empower and release the body of Christ in times of need.
How do we do that?
1. We partner with existing ministries and restoring the body of Christ.
2. Reach out to their communities to holistically serve and make disciples.
3. Transforming volunteers who come in to help.
4. Then they are able to impact their sending churches and the communities they serve.
Why Crisis Response?
Crisis disruptions the normalcy of life. A crisis includes but goes beyond disasters
Theme: God creates a mission field in the wake of every crisis. . . A crisis offers the opportunity to be intentional in building relationships with those who do not know Christ. Every crisis offers an opportunity to present the whole Gospel to the whole person.

As ReachGlobal Crisis Response Associate Communication Coordinator, Jackie uses her strengths in communications and love for people. In this role, she and the Communications Team helps raise awareness for the ministry through website management, print and embroidered materials and clothing, social media updates and working with the EFCA National Office to improve the ministry’s communication as a whole. She also ministers to homeowners, local church partners and other disaster response organizations to foster their relationships with The Lord.
Discipleship is our main mission, whether it be with the homeowners, ministry partners or the volunteers.
