Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT) Training
Responding to a disaster is a vital part of who we are as members of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Responding to a disaster allows a congregation to confess Christ to their community, region and world in ways they may have never considered before. Lutheran Early Response Team Training helps prepare congregations and individual members to be better prepared when a disaster strikes, and helps them know how to respond in word and deed within their community.
If you have been trained as a part of the Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT), you can help us by making sure that you are registered as a part of the new national database of LERT trained volunteers. Register by using this link: https://www.lcms.org/form/lert-volunteer-info with a registration code of ‘9999.’
Visit the LCMS website to learn more about LERT training.
