Continuity of Ministry & Operations Plan (COMOP)

COMOP documents are designed to assist local churches in building resiliency to disaster. When church leaders plan how they will protect and care for staff, parishioners, and physical property in the event of a disaster, they are better prepared to mitigate risk and impact. Consequently, church leaders can then strengthen their position from which to minister to their community when disaster strikes.

How To:
Plan a Community Disaster Preparedness (CDP) Campaign.

CDP campaigns build community resiliency that benefits children, senior citizens, families, and young adults from all walks of life. The campaign is a consortium of local faith-based, for-profit, nonprofit, and government organizations committed to building awareness and strengthening their community’s resiliency to disaster.
