PNBC Disaster Preparedness Team responds to Devastation in Kentucky

On Friday, December 10th, and early Saturday, December 11, 2021, devastating storms unleashing tornadoes wreaked havoc across parts of the central and southern US including Kentucky.

Governor Andy Beshear confirmed dozens of deaths and describes Friday as “indescribable and one of the toughest nights in Kentucky history.”

The unprecedented storms have left thousands displaced and in need of immediate and urgent assistance. The Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc. Disaster Relief Team lead by Dr. Frankie Jones is actively gathering resources as we conduct assessments and speak with the relevant authorities.

PNBC President, Rev. David Peoples, a Kentucky Native, has confirmed that by the grace of God, he and his family and all PNBC church leaders and members are unharmed. “On behalf of First Lady and I, and the entire PNBC Family, we continue to offer prayers and support to Kentucky and surrounding States left reeling from the devastating impact of the storms. We are grateful to our PNBC Disaster preparedness team led by Dr. Frankie Jones who immediately sprung into action and will be traveling to Kentucky on Monday to conduct a more thorough needs assessment.”

President Peoples encourages all to meditate on Psalm 91: 1-11 and to “please join us in prayer for those who have lost loved ones, businesses homes and much more as we prepare our hearts to give and assist in every way we can!”

Details are forthcoming following the assessment on Monday. Begin Giving Today
