LU Send Now’s vision is to train up the next generation to be champions for Christ in the field of disaster and crisis response providing humanitarian, spiritual, and psychological aid. Through physical labor and trauma ministry, our mission is to both be the hands and feet of Jesus and minister to the head and heart of those affected.
At Liberty, we believe in the incredible power of God to move through us when our state of readiness intersects with someone else’s urgent need. This initiative is the University's quick response team for urgent disaster relief and crisis response. If you want to be ready to respond in tangible ways and trained in trauma ministry, we’d love for you to join our team whether down the street or on the other side of the world.
The Hands and Feet Domestic Team assists in humanitarian aid by offering cleanup, rebuild, and other physical needs after a domestic disaster.
The Hands and Feet International Team assists in global humanitarian aid by offering cleanup, rebuild, and other physical needs after an international disaster.
The Head and Heart Team shares hope in despair by ministering to those psychologically and spiritually affected by traumatic disasters or crises.
In April 2019 LU Send Now deployed a team to Dodge County, Nebraska in response to intense flooding after a period of heavy rain and rapid snowmelt.
The Nebraska Emergency Management Agency tweeted that emergencies had been declared in 53 counties, 41 cities, and one tribal area. Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts called the flooding "historic."
