About reachNolaNow

Beyond The Ruins

The EFCA has had a presence in the New Orleans area long before Hurricane Katrina. Trinity Church and Urban Impact Ministries are each more than 20 years old. Castle Rock Community Church is 13 years old.

Since Hurricane Katrina in 2005, those ministries partnered with EFCA TouchGlobal Crisis Response for more than 5 years to continue to give the EFCA an even stronger presence in area.

It is our desire that reachNOLA will be a flood of love, compassion and service that brings transformation to the entire New Orleans metro area.
