Eight Days of Hope
Eight Days of Hope was meant to be a one-time visit to the Gulf Coast with a handful of people after Hurricane Katrina. God has allowed this ministry to blossom into so much more! On several different occasions, thousands of volunteers have ministered to people’s needs after Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Irene, Isaac, the floods in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Nashville, Tennessee, Black River South Carolina and the tornadoes in Northeast Mississippi and Northwest Alabama. Eight Days of Hope has one goal: Love and Serve those in need!
St. Mark's forms teams to serve with Eight Days of Hope on a regular basis. If you would like to join a future team and be contacted with updates, email Tom Brennom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope Reigns is a rapid response team ministry of Eight Days of Hope. This new ministry began in 2014 to provide early support to victims of tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, etc. within 48 to 72 hours of the disaster. St. Mark's members have supported several different Hope Reigns events in since 2015. If you would like to join a future team and be contacted with updates, email Tom Brennom at email@example.com.
