On May 31, 2013, several severe thunderstorms and three tornadoes produced high winds, damaging hail, and torrential rains in Central Oklahoma, where CIA is currently deployed. Christ In Action's team sheltered in place at Crossroads Church along with Convoy of Hope staff and volunteers and over 100 people from the community while the winds caused more damage to the area, hail battered vehicles, and heavy rains flooded streets. The latest reports indicate that these were either EF-3 or EF-4 tornadoes, and 9 deaths have been attributed to them thus far.
At Camp Hope, another of Christ In Action's tents suffered some damage from the high winds, but everyone made it through safely. We've been able to make repairs to the tent and crews are back out working to bring hope to this area that has been hit yet again.
Christ In Action, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded in 1982 as an evangelistic organization by Dr. Denny & Sandy Nissley. Since then it has grown into an international ministry touching millions of lives around the world. In the late 90's the focus shifted from street ministry to disaster relief. Today, the mission remains unchanged, we continue taking the love of Jesus to where it's most desperately needed and hardest to find, bringing hope to America's families.
Christ In Action's international headquarters is in Manassas, VA with another base of operation located on the West Coast, in Ramona, CA. In 2001 CIA was launched in the United Kingdom, known as Kergyma180 (K180), headquartered in London, England with another base in Falkirk, Scotland.
