Southbears E-mail List
The development of the Southern Baptist Emergency Amateur Radio Service (SouthBears) is a result of a collaborative effort of Southern Baptist Amateurs.
The purpose of the SouthBears is to provide a network of support communication services to Southern Baptist volunteer groups or affiliated agencies during commercial communication disruptions. This is accomplished through a ministry employing the resources and talents of Christian amateur radio operators for the glory of God and to provide health and welfare message handling in disaster areas as a direct ministry to victims affected by the disaster whenever priorities allow. We also need to make ourselves available to meet the needs of every disaster victim through the medium of communication. We do these things for the glory of Christ's Kingdom.
Our primary goal is to provide logistical communications for our state disaster relief activities and the disaster relief activities of the North American Mission Board (NAMB). Our secondary goal is to provide communications for others as the situation dictates. We shall exhibit an attitude, Christ-like as humanly possible to every contact, be it peer or disaster victim. We will consistently strive to labor for Jesus under the Bible verse, "..whatsoever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did it for me." Matthew 25:40 NIV
TSA and SATERN are encouraging us, as SouthBears members, to check into their nets whenever possible and when doing so, to identify ourselves as SouthBears members. This provides us with yet another resource, with which to accomplish our mission and goals, by utilizing existing nets managed by fellow believers.
