TBM Communications Fellowship exists for people who share their time, talents and equipment to provide a network of communications during times of disasters or special events.
Types of Communicators in this Fellowship include:
- Disaster Relief Communicators (paperwork and general administrative roles)
- Computer and Internet Operators
- Amateur Ham Radio Operators
Some communicators deploy with a specific relief unit such as a chainsaw team or kitchen, some deploy with a Communications Unit, some deploy with an as-needed assignment. Some of our members do not deploy, but work as trainers, planners, equippers and equipment maintainers.
In the Bible, the Disaster Relief Communicator pre-dates some of our contemporary technology. Through the ages, the leadership principal is to have specially qualified people set aside to handle aspects of communications. The "disaster recovery" effort in Nehemiah 4 is a great example. As the incident command structure for that project is described in this chapter, we find that a special communicator is designated in verse 18 - the bugle player! As time goes on, technology changes and we adapt to the available options for the particular incident.
Our fellowship is about equipping ourselves for a variety of communications tasks and roles common to the efforts and projects of Texas Baptist Men.
