There are many places of service for those who would like to be involved in the ministry of disaster recovery. While many congregations are sending volunteers to locations around the nation in need of clean up and rebuilding assistance, others have offered hospitality.

The congregations on this list are willing to serve as way station locations – offering volunteer work teams a place to stay overnight while journeying to or from their mission destination. Map your journey, and if one of these locations can assist you with an overnight stay along the road, use the contact information provided to be in touch with them. Our thanks to these way station congregations for your part in the mission of disaster recovery.

If your congregation would like to serve as a way station congregation, please send an email to PDA.
