My Role as a missionary at ADRN
As I partner with God, my work as Operations Assistant at Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) is my primary focus of ministry.
During times of disaster, I plug in where needed: ● Give emotional and spiritual support to survivors through the CISM model. ● Provide leadership, administrative, and accounting support to field leaders. ● Serve on the Logistics team, which undergirds the entire disaster response by providing critical material and volunteer resources as well as helping to maintain an atmosphere of peace during times of crisis.
Outside of disaster, I serve on the Operations Team: ● Participate in the creation of Response Protocol. ● Oversee the operations of the ADRN facilities. ● Build various core teams (Logistics, IT, Facility Maintenance). ● Strengthen partnerships with companies and non-profits as part of our disaster readiness goals. ● Co-teach the CISM training course; CISM is a core ADRN service provided in every disaster.
