Mercy Response is a ministry of Vineyard Church of New Orleans, helping Vineyard churches help other Vineyard churches in our region. We do this by coordinating and managing teams of volunteers to provide labor and assistance to Vineyard church pastors and members whose homes have been damaged. We then assist church members in assisting their neighbors.
To clarify, Convoy Of Hope is Vineyard USA's Disaster Relief Partner organization, providing extensive, large-scale, first-response provision of needed supplies to affected areas. Convoy sets up distribution centers, in many cases with Vineyard churches, to get supplies to people affected by disaster. After Convoy Of Hope addresses the immediate needs of those impacted, we'll then continue in the specific work of coordinating teams to help Vineyard churches in their rebuilding efforts.
