How You And Your Church Can Help
We have two options here for connection.
1. CONVOY OF HOPE is our VUSA Disaster Relief Partner, on the ground with first-response supplies and aid. Vineyard USA partners with Convoy of Hope for all disaster relief response. Supplies, donations, and help are needed.
2. NEW ORLEAN’S VINEYARD is organizing teams for reconstruction and support to those impacted in Vineyard churches. If your church wants to send teams, the New Orleans Vineyard is coordinating this through their local church mercy response ministry (link below).
1. CONVOY OF HOPE (VUSA Disaster Relief Partner)
CONVOY OF HOPE is Vineyard USA’s Disaster Relief Partner, providing extensive, large-scale, first-response provision of needed supplies to affected areas.
As a faith-based, international, humanitarian-relief organization strategically based in Springfield, Missouri, Convoy’s goal is to bring help and hope to those who are impoverished, hungry and hurting.
Convoy sets up distribution centers, in many cases with Vineyard churches, to get supplies to people affected by disaster. (You can see the video of Phil and Hal Donaldson of Convoy at our 2017 National Conference here.)
They are already on the ground working with Vineyards and many others to get first response supplies distributed in affected areas.
2. NEW ORLEANS VINEYARD (Teams & Reconstruction)
A second option for you to send teams through is the NEW ORLEANS VINEYARD. They are helping Vineyard churches help other Vineyard churches in their region.
They do this by coordinating and managing teams of volunteers to provide labor and assistance to Vineyard church pastors and members whose homes have been damaged. They then assist church members in assisting their neighbors. This work continues after the first-response efforts.
