Before the training, please complete the following tasks:

  1. If you have not done so, please familiarize yourself with the Church Emergency Plan (ChEMP) template (see attached).
    Each church team will complete the template at the training.

We are excited about this training and look forward to seeing you then!

TO THE LEADERSHIP OF ALL OUR ENGLISH SPEAKING LOCAL CHURCHES

Please share this Email with other all church leaders and members interested in being prepared to respond effectively when natural or human-made crisis or disasters occur in your community.  Thank you.

Dear friends in Christ Jesus.

I hope a positive answer from your local church leadership before Monday July 25th.

1) Is your local church leadership willing to attend a ONE-DAY (SUNDAY) TRAINING in August on Emergency Management?

2) Is your church willing to offer its location to host this leadership training for 25-50 persons?

ADRA Canada is ready to come to QUEBEC, IN PERSON, BEFORE END OF AUGUST, to provide local churches with a ONE-DAY TRAINING (English only) on Emergency Management and on how to be prepared and effectively respond to crises or disasters.  French training will be provided in the Fall, God willing.

The ultimate vision?
That ALL our local churches in Quebec BE READY TO SERVE IN UNITY when natural or human-made crisis and disasters occur.

The training is designed for pastors, church leaders, and church board members TO CATCH THE VISION and who desire to prepare for, respond to and serve their congregation and local community during and after a disaster. The training promises to be interactive, informative, and effective in helping your church continue being a lighthouse in your community.  Church members and volunteers are also invited to attend.  Light refreshments will be provided.  Churches that complete the training will also receive a certificate from ADRA Canada in recognition of their attendance.

1) Kindly confirm which date will work best for your team.

  • Sunday August 21st (SUGGESTED)
  • Sunday August   7th
  • Sunday August 14th

2) Is your church willing to offer its location?

We’re looking for a church to host the training.

I hope a positive answer from your local church leadership before Monday July 25th.

May the Lord’s will be done regarding His vision of being prepared to respond IN UNITY when a crisis or a disaster occurs in our communities.
