The Tennessee-Western Kentucky Conference Disaster Response Ministry provides leadership for disaster readiness, relief and recovery by offering training, resources and ‘people power’ to assist local churches in their own disaster response ministry. Our teams work out of each conference district under the direction of the Disaster Response Coordinator (DRC) for the TWK Episcopal Area, Robert Craig.

We are in partnership with the local, county, and state Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD), The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) and many other disaster response organizations. Please note: All volunteer teams need to register with us before deploying to any disaster-affected area.

If you need to report storm damage to our disaster response team or are interested in deploying to assist in areas affected by recent storms, please email our team at Please do not self-deploy to another UMC conference without invitation.
