Thank you for your interest in AVDRN. We are an organization made up of volunteers from a network of churches in the Antelope Valley area who are trained, equipped and prepared as loving Christians to serve those in need in times of disaster, great or small. Our mission, to positively impact those affected by disaster by revealing the love of Jesus, is carried out by preparing our volunteers and empowering them to use their gifts to serve others in times of need.
Disaster occurs and instantly communities and lives are changed. We believe that in the moments following the initial disaster, AVDRN can have a powerful impact. To be prepared and ready, AVDRN has created training pathways that help our volunteers identify their strengths and allows our volunteers to choose how to best use their gifts. Whatever level of involvement, whether you are interested in volunteering time with our staff, deploying, becoming a Chaplain or assisting families, AVDRN welcomes you. Our orientation will provide answers to your initial questions and to help you find your comfort level of support within our organization.
