When Samaritan’s Purse responds to natural disasters, we partner with churches, working together to share the love of Jesus Christ with people facing grief and uncertainty.
Lighthouse Sending Churches organize teams within their congregation that are willing to volunteer with Samaritan’s Purse, and then send these teams to disaster responses within Canada.
Impact. Disasters provide a unique opportunity for churches to be directly involved and engaged in sharing the love of Christ, and building relationships with Canadians who may never otherwise enter a church.
Outreach. The greatest impact is often realized by those who have been so affected from the efforts of Samaritan’s Purse, that they make a decision for Christ. When this occurs, Samaritan’s Purse will seek to connect that person to a local church, which can provide follow-up and discipleship.
Serve people. Lighthouse Host Church volunteers have a special chance to respond to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of people across Canada. Rallying around hurting people in their time of need can bring great purpose and fulfillment to volunteers who seek to serve in Jesus’ name.
