The Austin Disaster Relief Network is comprised of churches, ministries and businesses within the Christian community of Greater Austin to form a disaster relief alliance to help those in need in times of disaster.

Our vision is to serve Christ by establishing a church network in the Greater Austin area that will meet the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of those affected by disaster (Luke 10:25-37). We will accomplish this vision by building a communication infrastructure that will enable and empower the Body of Christ to organize, mobilize, connect, prepare, train and respond quickly in the event of a disaster, great or small. We believe we can be an asset to the Body of Christ by organizing and mobilizing their resources so they can effectively and efficiently focus on the people affected by tragedy. By working together, we believe lives will be transformed in the name of Jesus Christ.

  • We believe that a combination of emotional, physical and spiritual assistance is required in the event of a disaster.
  • We seek to dwell in unity for the sake of Christ (Psalms 133).
  • We place a high value on every person we assist because we believe Christ died for them (Luke 10:25-37).
  • We believe integrity, trust and building Christ-like relationships is an essential.
  • We value transformation in the lives of people we serve.
  • We value the spirit of excellence.
