Shepherd’s Heart Ministry, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) and a Recognized Service Organization (RSO) of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. The Executive Director, Rev. Ed Brashier is also the LCMS Southern District Disaster Response Coordinator who has been active in disaster response since Hurricane Katrina and has deployed long-term 25 times all across the Eastern USA.
Lutheran Church Charities Disaster Response has served with Rev. Ed Brashier and his Shepherd’s Heart Ministry following many hurricanes and tornadoes in the Southern District.
Since 2016, the Ministry’s 2011 Keystone Cougar 30 ft. bunkhouse RV has been used on eight long-term deployments to house Rev. Ed Brashier and other volunteers. It is showing its age and is in need of replacement. The RV needs to be capable of sleeping four adult men. Most bunkhouse RVs have adult and children-sized beds, so a replacement may need to be customized.The Keystone Cougar RV is currently being used in Fairhope, Alabama where Shepherd’s Heart Ministry has been responding to Hurricane Sally for the last two months.
Rev. Ed Brashier is asking Lutheran Church Charities for any assistance it could provide towards upgrading their RV and a diesel truck for hauling equipment.
