Preparedness is a vital component to the response of any disaster. The Rocky Mountain District has certainly experienced numerous and significant disasters since the establishment of its Disaster Response fund in 2006; flooding, wildfires, tornadoes and other events. Part of this preparedness is having the financial resources in place when a disaster occurs. These financial resources are used to deploy local LCMS churches and ministries in being the hands and feet of mercy within their community, meeting the material and spiritual needs of those affected by a disaster.
