At the request of The White House, they are currently developing a Faith Based First Responders Coalition to streamline a nationwide rapid response network in the event of future disasters. CIA has been responding to national disasters since 1998.

At MVCC we want to train and prepare Christians to minister to our neighbors in the name of Jesus when a crisis occurs no matter the size or scale.  The people at C.I.A. help us do this.  To find out more about one of our ministry partners visit
