The Shenandoah District Disaster Ministries Auction began in 1993 by a group of committed volunteers who wanted to lay a foundation of solid financial support for our denomination's ministry of Disaster Response. With 24 annual auctions now history, and more than $4.3 million raised, our district's Disaster Ministries Auction has continued to build on that foundation and, along with other districts, supports a program of Disaster Response offering assistance to victims of war and disaster all over the world. 

The 2016 Disaster Ministries Auction, our 24th, was held May 20 and 21 at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds with estimated net proceeds as of June 15 of more than $200,000.

Mark your calendars now for the 25th anniversary auction - May 19 and 20, 2017!
