Colorado Baptist Disaster Relief is Christian love in action.

It is meeting the urgent needs of hurting humanity in crisis situations with loving care and a timely response
as James 2:15-16 instructs us to do.

Our Ministry:

The Colorado Baptist Disaster Relief ministries are comprised of approximately 450 volunteers from all over the state who are committed to sharing the hope of Jesus with those whose lives have been impacted by disasters.

Our specialized areas of ministry include: chainsaw, flood recovery/mud out, ash out, food preparation, chaplaincy, shower unit, and communication unit.

We exist to serve others in the name of Jesus Christ in times of disaster.

Attention: Great news for all DR Volunteers!
Effective immediately we have a new lower fee structure.
