THM Public Meeting – Tornado Volunteers


Subject: Henryville and So. IN Tornado recovery update

Terre Haute Ministries is actively responding to assist those in need after the F4 tornado swept across the southern portion of Indiana only a few short weeks ago.  In Southern Indiana, 13 lives were lost and hundreds of homes were completely destroyed and many others were damages severely. Regardless of why there is an emergency, Terre Haute Ministries desires to mobilize the Body to meet the need.


Terre Haute Ministries has been serving in Henryville for a couple of weeks now and has been asked to take the lead position in coordinating the large volume of volunteers and assembling them at “ROC (Rebuilding Our Community) Ranch Camp @ Country Lake.”  These volunteers will be gathered to help support the clean-up and recovery effort.  Through our INVOAD partnership, affiliated groups (volunteers that come as a group through their Church, denomination or national ministry) will be scheduled through this effort and hosted at Country Lake Christian Retreat Center.  The Retreat Center maintains their commitment to hosting volunteers until the last home is built.

A public informational meeting is scheduled for Thursday, March 22nd at 6pm, located at Maryland Community Church (4700 South State Road 46, Terre Haute, IN 47802).  We will be sharing an update and information on the Henryville and surrounding area tornado recovery efforts.  Most importantly, we will discuss how anyone interested in volunteering in the rebuilding efforts can get involved. 

We encourage our congregations and community to volunteer for this recovery effort. This is an opportunity to be able to go on a mission trip and summer camp/retreat all at the same time. It will be an incredible experience right beyond our own back yards.  For more information about the meeting, please contact or leave a message at the Terre Haute Ministries office at 812-234-7100 ext. 215
