Transform Joplin is responding with care and compassion.
What are the needs of our community following the devastating EF-5 tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri on May 22, 2011? The needs are many and great. Transform Joplin is a non-profit organization that strives to take care of those who have experienced loss. We are working to serve our community by transforming homes and lives.
We are rebuilding our city. We need your help.
Thank you, Trent! Thank you, Lord!
It's been a wonderful, challenging, joyful, frustrating, rewarding, blessed two years at TRANSFORM JOPLIN. Trent Davis has been our director of disaster response, volunteer coordinator, construction manager, and many other faithful examples of Christian service in the Joplin community for the past two years. As his time with us draws to a close, we remember his many contributions to the ministry of TRANSFORM JOPLIN, Inc.: a mission ministry of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Joplin.
+ May 22, 2013 marked two years since the devastating Joplin tornado. By God's grace, Joplin has come SO far!
+ On 5/22/2013 Immanuel Lutheran Church and Martin Luther School in Joplin broke ground on two new storm shelter classrooms to better serve its students and the neighborhood!
Transform Joplin and the people of Immanuel-Joplin are "paying it forward" this summer by sending mission teams to help folks recover from flooding in Minot, ND and tornadoes in Moore, OK.

Then you will be able
to test and approve
what God’s will is--
His good, pleasing
and perfect will."
