The Director Speaks:
A word from Chuck Beem
The predictions are in and the day is here—it’s hurricane season on the Gulf Coast of Texas! Praise God that last year was not too active, especially with Harvey so fresh in everyone’s minds. What will this season bring us? The National Hurricane Center has a prediction, but the truth is that only the Lord knows what’s ahead of us. The question is, “How are you preparing your church and the people of your church for a potential disaster?”

Here are a couple of suggestions:
1.       Pastor, you yourself prepare and model preparedness for your church people.
2.       Encourage members to develop individual or family disaster plans and supplies.
3.       Before evacuating, do what can be done to protect the church property.
4.       Use existing communication approaches to share information and evacuation messaging ahead of the disaster.
5.       Keep an updated emergency contact for leaders and members.
6.       Reach out to other pastors, churches, and relief groups now about coordinating responses.
7.       Get ready to pivot existing ministries to focus on disaster needs.

Recent history has taught us that it is not a matter of if a disaster hits our county, but when. As followers of Christ, we must be prepared to protect ourselves so that we can help our neighbors in their time of need.

Our next TEAM Meeting is July 16 at Garden Road Baptist Church in Pearland. The folks from Homeland Preparedness Project (HPP) will be there to show us how our churches can be involved in the disaster preparedness plan for Brazoria County. If you’re not familiar with HPP, they are a non-profit organization that Brazoria County has contracted to run the sheltering and evacuation processes in our county. I encourage you to not only come to the July meeting, but bring your staff and members of your church who work in your disaster relief ministry.

Let’s continue to make much of Jesus together!
