About DR Appreciation Day

May 16 is Missouri Baptist Disaster Relief (MODR) Appreciation Day for all of our team members. MODR transforms lives and communities with the gospel by bringing hope, help, and healing in times of crisis. It’s the team members that make it happen so let’s say “Thank you!” to show our appreciation.

  • Our DR team is composed of over 2,000 trained team members from 800 churches, 58 associations, and every region of the state!
  • Our first response was in 1986.
