MENUMENU
Global Outreach Header

There are many types of devastation in the world.

Natural. Personal. Communal.

And standing ready to help those who have been devastated is one way we demonstrate being Champions for Christ.

At Liberty, our urgent disaster relief team can teach you tangible ways to provide swift humanitarian, spiritual, and psychological aid — and then take you to disaster sites to do it in person.

No matter which degree program you choose, you and students like you can show up and make a life-changing difference to victims of floods, fires, tornadoes, and other disasters — including refugees in crisis.

No need to wait until you graduate. At Liberty, you can be part of a global solution now.

“It’s important that we run to people who are hurting and broken, especially in crises that could happen at any moment.

It could be us tomorrow, and as human beings, we should be there for one another … the role of the Church in a crisis situation or natural disaster is to go and love and help people, to share hope in a hopeless situation, and to come together as community and family to help people in times of need.”

— Holly Griswold, associate director of LU Send Now

“As a Junior during the summer of 2016, I had the opportunity to complete my internship abroad on a trip to Greece with the psychology department. We studied the impact of the human trafficking trade and learned about efforts being made to end the industry. 

“While on the trip, we studied in a classroom setting, as well as heard from those who have dedicated their lives to advocating for individuals trapped in human trafficking. We even had the opportunity to walk the brothel-riddled streets of Athens and pray for each person involved.

LU Send traveled to California to serve victims of the deadly 2018 wildfires

“This trip to California — to work with families and Samaritan’s Purse recovering as much of their treasures and hearing their stories of survival — was an eye-opening and humbling experience. One that will not soon be forgotten. “

— Latoya S.


“Certainly a heavy trip. It wasn’t that it was strenuous physically but more so existentially because of seeing all the damage done. As we sifted through people’s lives, it was nearly impossible to not be emotionally invested in finding or retrieving their treasures — monetary or sentimental.”

— Mac C.
