Helping turn lives right side up by turning the world upside down!

“These who have turned the world upside down have come here too.” Acts 17:6

Disaster Response

Right Side Up Ministries helps the local church respond to disasters in their community. We focus on helping the local church find and utilize their strengths to help their community recover. By helping the local church bring relief to their community we are able to show the love of Christ to hurting people.

Disaster Training

We train churches to respond to disasters in their own community by helping them find their God given strengths and talents. We have two training sessions, one for church staff and leaders, and one for church volunteers. We offer this training to help the church bring relief in chaos and show the love of Christ.

World Missions

We work with missionaries around the world to see how they can best utilize are talents and abilities. Our focus is on the long-term missionary, not on a short-term missions experience. We accomplish this through annual mission trips designed to build long lasting partnerships with missionaries that will last for years to come.

Our Responses

We have responded to many disasters throughout the United States. Here are our most recent responses.
