On the evening of May 21, 2024, a large tornado moved through Greenfield, Iowa, destroying homes and impacting the lives of thousands. ReachGlobal Crisis Response is mobilizing to share the love of Christ with those in need in the mission field that follows crisis.

Crisis Response and additional ReachGlobal staff are on the ground connecting with church leaders from Cornerstone Fellowship (EFCA) and identifying meaningful ways to connect with those affected in the community.


  • God's comforts and encourages those affected by the tornado
  • For the holistic restoration of this community
  • For the community of Cornerstone Fellowship as they share Christ's love and live out the gospel in their hurting community
