Emergency Ministry: Equipping People for Ministry in Traumatic Times
Emergency Ministry exists to resource ministers, chaplains and other Christian workers to prepare for, minister in, and recover from times of trauma and hardship.  Founded by Rev. Dr. Stephen Robinson in 2007, this website is to become a resource hub to bring together people involved in trauma ministry – linking them to training resources, events, information and other useful websites in this field.
