DR Chaplaincy Training

Those interested in working in the disaster area through Southern Baptist Disaster Relief must complete a DR training course. Individuals completing the course will receive Disaster Relief identification, which is required to enter a disaster area, and a yellow DR hat and shirt, a Southern Baptist Disaster Relief distinctive. These training events are for new volunteers and those who need to be recertified.

Classes for this event will include orientation with Operational Stress First Aid (OSFA), which is required.

The Saddleback event will feature training for DR chaplaincy related to non-threatening spiritual care and emotional support for disaster survivors and team members. This discipline also provides resources for effective coping, stress management and spiritual wellness.

This Convention serves our culturally diverse congregations as we fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.
