In May of 1999, Randy and Terri Johnson were moved to action when they watched the horrifying reports of the devastation caused by the largest tornado in recorded history in Oklahoma City, OK. Wanting to help, but living halfway across the country in Virginia, they borrowed trucks and trailers to deliver three loads of supplies to those whose needs far outmatched their own. In bringing hope to people in desperate need, they found their calling. Soon after, the non-profit crisis response organization known as God’s Pit Crew was born. Tuesday, on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Pit Crew team member, Chris Chiles joins us to talk about their current relief efforts and how to learn more about this ministry.
Chris Chiles was born in Richmond, Virginia, and started his career in residential and commercial construction. He joined God's Pit Crew as the Immediate Response Coordinator in August 2020. Before joining God’s Pit Crew, he operated in a similar capacity within ministry for twelve years. Over time, Chris has been exposed to almost every kind of disaster and has personally led volunteer teams who have responded to more than 60 events. In this capacity, Chris has been fortunate to experience glimpses of hope restored in people’s lives when his team meets their needs with compassion and no strings attached.
