As was already indicated, disaster season in Florida is our busiest time of the year. Thank God for a pretty safe and quiet 2008-2016. He really held back the master of disaster (Satan).
However, things changed drastically in the 2017-season. Irma, while she may be a mere memory for some, she continues to keep us busy.
With the direct efforts of local pastors, out of state student volunteers (over 300 of them, under the leadership of Pastor Jim Ingresoll of the Southern Union), and dedicated Lay Volunteer leaders, we were able to respond to Irma. But how can we forget the donors of goods and cash. Starting with the Florida Conference, (our own conference). Before the first donated dollar ever arrived to help us the Florida Conference already air marked over $50,000 to help in our efforts in Jacksonville, Ft. Myers, Naples, Immokalee, and the Florida Keys. These Donations were used to buy needed equipment, pay for rental units to transport goods and services to the worse-hit areas mentioned above.
We were able to host hundreds of volunteers, mostly from out of state, who cleaned out many flooded homes, removed outside debris, like fallen trees, broken fences and other dangerous articles. Several leaders of the conference, including our conference president, joined me in the distribution of water, food and clothes in these affected areas. Special thanks to all the wonderful employees as well as noon-employees, who formed a part of our Disaster Response Management team to make our response successful.
Men and ladies such as Pastors Bill Bremner, Warehouse Manager, Pastor Ryan Amos, Director of Logistics and equipment, Justin Vibbard, Coordinator of net-working and grants, Pastors Joe and Trisha Nesbitt, Coordinators of the Gulf region, Joel Moran and Charles Lee, Distribution Center Coordinators for East Central Florida, Eric Cantillo, Distribution Center Coordinator for Miami Dade county, and several other Pastors and Lay Leaders, who stepped up when their service was needed. Special mention of Pastors Roberto Blanco of Homestead Spanish, Kendall Turcios of Ignite and Freddy Rodriguez, associate youth director for their help in the last disaster series.
I also want to thank brothers Bernie James and Dave Boggess from the Florida Conference IT Department, and John Pawson and Miguel of Service Center, who managed the drop off and pick up of donations at the Orlando site-the conference office and FLA campus.
Without these truly Godly leaders and volunteers the 2017 disasters would be more disastrous. Again, on behalf of the thousands (at least 8,000) of people who we assisted directly and indirectly during the 2017 Hurricane Season, thank you sincerely. God took note of all that you did. And if I failed to mention the name of anyone that showed up and helped I am sorry.

About Us

The Adventurer Club is a Seventh-day Adventist Church-sponsored ministry open to all families of children in grades 1-4. Our mission is to support parents and caregivers in leading and encouraging their children in a growing, joyful love relationship with Jesus Christ.
The first few years of a child’s life sets the stage for their future.  For parents/families of pre-K through fourth grade children, our Adventurer Clubs provide a safe place to encourage the development of the necessary social and interpersonal skills they need, in an environment that promotes Christian values and responsibilities.
Families will learn a variety of topics together, from character building, nature, hobbies, safety, and much more. This club also has parenting tips and resources through the family network and is designed to help you be the best parent/caregiver you can be as you partner with your child and other families to grow your kids to be the best they can be. Most clubs meet twice a month.
