The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod's disaster response ministry responds to immediate and long-term needs following natural and man-made disasters, working through LCMS districts and congregations, international Lutheran churches and other partners. We build partners’ capacity to respond with Christian care to needs within the church and their communities with the following services:

  • On-site assessment
  • Emergency, relief and development grants
  • Pastoral care for LCMS church workers and members
  • Congregational Preparedness and Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT) training
  • Resources (volunteer coordination, donation and equipment management)


God calls us to be His hands reaching out to bring what peace, relief and assistance we can to those who suffer the devastating effects of disasters.If you are able to help out in any way or have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to drop an email to Rev. Kristian Bjornstad at, or call him at  570-871-0448 or 570-343-9828.  You can also contact Rev. Corey Eckstrom at 607-591-5919!
