Connect. Mobilize. Equip.

What is the HLCN?

“… to help our neighbors in times of crisis or disaster by meeting physical, spiritual and emotional needs.”

OUR VISION

We exist to help equip and connect the Body of Christ to Love our neighbors through acts of service. We love God and People, and strive to serve, specifically in times of crisis.

OUR MISSION

The Highland Lakes Crisis Network is a network of churches meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our neighbors during times of crisis and disaster.

John 17:20-23

OUR GOALS

Unity: We strive to be one so that the world will know that God sent His son and will also be one in and with Him.

John 17:20-23

Honor the Church: Our desire is to connect people in need with God’s provision for them, by working together with existing, effective ministries in order to bring honor and glory to God and His church. Our interactions will be respectful and reflect our belief that all of our gifts have been given from God and should be used toward advancing His Kingdom.

Revelation 19:7 | 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 | 1 Corinthians 12:4-31 | Ephesians 4:1-16

Love Our Neighbors: The Greatest Commandment calls us to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind and to Love our neighbor as yourself. Everything we do is with a goal of glorifying God through service to others. We strive to serve and to love unconditionally, as Christ loved us. We treat each other with respect and dignity regardless of belief, politics, race, or any other thing that divides us in this world.

Matthew 22:37-40, James 2:14-20

    Area-wide Major Flood

    The 10/16/2018 was a major disaster in the Burnet and Llano Counties. The response was a kairos moment for HLCN. In responding to the aftermath of the flood, churches in the area banded together in a coordinated way to respond to the short term physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of our neighbors. This was the beginning of what would become HLCN.

    October - December 2018

    The first many months of HLCN was spent in mud-out, cleaning, and organization of volunteer teams working to restore life back to as close to normal as possible for area residents. HLCN was officially organized and became the long-term recovery committee for Burnet and Llano Counties for the flood of 2018. In all we responded to more than 680 cases and helped to steward approx. $1.5 million dollars of community donations to those impacted by the flood.
