SPDR - About Us
The Synod Partnership for Disaster Recovery (SPDR) is a ministry of the Synod of the Sun dedicated to connecting, equipping, and empowering Presbyterians to witness to the healing love of Christ through caring for communities adversely affected by crises and catastrophic events.
SPDR began in 2022 as a four-year pilot initiative and seeks to provide each presbytery with resources for disaster preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation through an increase of the 4Cs – cooperation, communication, coordination, and collaboration.
The Covenant Partners of SPDR include 11 Presbyteries, the Synod of the Sun, and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance.
