SBTS working with KBC Disaster Relief to provide aid to Haiti

Communications Staff — January 20, 2010

Southern Seminary has been working with Kentucky Baptist Convention (KBC) Disaster Relief to provide aid to the devastated nation of Haiti. This aid will be in the form of administering resources and staffing over the coming months.

Volunteers from the seminary student body, staff and community are encouraged to serve in any capacity they can. If you are interested in participating you must have phase I of the KBC’s disaster relief training completed.

In the coming weeks the KBC will host two phase I training sessions. The training will cost $40 (cash or check) and includes a required background check, training materials and an identification card.

Phase I training sessions dates, time and locations are as follows:

  • Jan. 23: 9 a.m.-1 p.m. (CST) at 2nd Baptist Church, 633 Bishop Avenue, Madisonville, Ky.
  • Feb. 6: 9 a.m.-1 p.m. (EST) at 9th & O Baptist Church, 4401 Breckenridge Lane, Louisville, Ky.

To sign up for either of these sessions, contact Jen Burton with Southern Seminary Campus Security at jburton@sbts.edu.

If you would are interested in the Madisonville training session, organized group transportation is available. Due to limited space, please secure your space as soon as possible with Burton. The Madisonville transportation will depart from the Legacy Hotel lobby at 7 a.m. and is expected to return around 4 pm.
