Exodus Celebration of Hope Dinner Print E-mail
Exodus Exodus World Services drew its largest crowd ever for its Celebration of Hope Banquet on April 15, 2016. Over 700 hundred people were in attendance to support and celebrate the work of Exodus volunteers who welcome refugees to America. The guest speaker for the event was NBA player Luol Deng. Deng, whose family was assisted by EWS said, "There are a lot of people who want to help refugees but don't know how to get connected. Exodus is a way you can reach out and help"

In 2015, with a modest staff of two, Exodus World Services mobilized the Christian community to welcome 833 refugees to the Chicago metropolitan area. Most of these refugees were women and children. The key to their success is educating congregations about refugee ministry and connecting volunteers with incoming refugees. The education process includes teaching practical service projects and equipping leaders to advocate on behalf of refugees.

To learn more about this caring ministry, or volunteer visit or find them on Facebook.

Who Ya Gonna Call?
Disaster and Crisis Preparedness for Churches

DR Disaster and Crisis happens to other people…not us. Tornados, fires, earthquakes, gunman…you see it on the news…always somewhere else…never at home. Then, it happens. Now what? You were simply not prepared. The time to prepare is NOW. Before the unthinkable happens.

Have you thought about…

  • How do we reach our members?
  • Are our vital records safe, secure and where are they?
  • What is the Disaster Chain of Command?
  • Where do we meet if our building is destroyed?

Are you Ready? Who ya gonna call?

Natural Disaster and Crisis can and do strike anywhere, anytime. It is impossible to prevent it from happening, but it IS POSSIBLE to be PREPARED.

In a Disaster Preparedness Seminar and Workshop presented by Tim Hetzner, President of Lutheran Church Charities and Disaster/Crisis Response Director, your congregational and school leadership will be guided through the process of developing and implementing a Disaster and Crisis Readiness Plan.

DR In this Secretarial Conference preview session, Tim will offer a brief overview of what the seminar/workshop will include. You will take away valuable information that you can share with your leadership and schedule a workshop in the near future.

If the unthinkable does happen, BE PREPARED to calmly share the Mercy and Compassion of Jesus Christ to those in your church and community during a time of Crisis or Disaster.

The Seminar and Workshop will teach ways to:

  • Protect property
  • Continue services
  • Care for members
  • Protect members in Church on Sunday in the event of a shooter
  • Recover or repair disaster-related damages
  • Protect Church records
  • Communicate when communication has been disabled

So join us for a valuable and insightful session that will answer the question Who Ya Gonna Call?
