46 1Response

The 461 Response Network of Assemblies of God Churches and Districts is committed to helping reach communities during times of trouble, according to their needs, and as the Lord provides. Our 461 Response Bahamas Initiative is a partnership between Hope Plaza and The Assemblies of God in The Bahamas Including The Turks and Caicos Islands. In 2023 training took place on Grand Bahama Island and will continue on other islands throughout The Commonwealth of The Bahamas. 


As a Caring Community, the church property becomes the hub of ministry for the community. This includes becoming a point of distribution for food, clothing, and shelter, providing a safe place for counseling, and/ or serving as a command center for 461 Response teams.


As a Responding Community, team members are deployed to provide resources and relief in critical incident situations. This includes cutting down trees, removing debris, delivering food and/or water, marking buildings, etc. Serving the community occurs in locations away from the church property as team members go to the areas that have been directly affected.


As part of a Healing Community, team members provide spiritual and emotional care to victims of critical incidents. This includes ministering to the police, fire, and/or EMT responders who may have secondary emotional, psychological, and spiritual effects from working with those directly affected by critical incidents.
