Christian Emergency Preparedness Network   (CEPN)

CEPN, The Christian Emergency Preparedness Networks goals are focused on the basics of preparedness and the need and wisdom in networking with others who have eye’s to see, who also understand the strength found in numbers, and the economy of scale.  In other words, when times are really tough, it is wise to group-up for a host of reasons.  If you have five family’s who are relatively prepared, that is a whole lot more hands and minds available for any and all tasks at hand.  There is no reason for everyone to have a generator or a well, as long as some in your group do, and so forth.  In this group might be some who need special care, as charity is at the forefront of a Christian life we need to help those who can’t help themselves.  Also warning others is a form of help.

 

The information we provide here is elementary to intermediate and directed towards those relatively new to the concept of prepping.  We are well aware that there is a great volume of information on 'Prepping' available on the Internet.  We urge you to search other sources for information for more in-depth knowledge on the myriad of subjects associated with being prepared.  You will find links below to some of the best preparedness sites to speed up your progress.

 What makes our approach unique is that we bring a program for you to take to those in your spheres of influence, helping you develop your own local network of friends and family that can assist one another in times of trouble.  We hope you find this printable information of value.  We seek leaders who will champion this message within their church.  Preppertarians!  Yet, your work, civic group, and family are also great places to spread the word. 

 

 Prepare wisely, it's a spiritual battle.

All the necessary material to create an attractive and effective display is right below and ready to print out.  Then, just display it in your church or group meeting where people will see it and hopefully start a conversation…….. perhaps a message from your pastor might be of great benefit.  We live in interesting times, the best of times, and the worst of times.

1 Timothy 5:8,  But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

 Below are some links to some useful websites.

Our goals

What we would like to see is individuals take up the banner of community preparedness.  This means organizing your friends, family and social contacts and helping them get a vision of preparing ahead of the next disaster, and cooperating during the next event.  It's not hard to do.  There is a lot of interest right now in 'prepping' as people see the direction our country is going.  You can do this through your church, through work, and through civic groups.  The materials on this web site can help you get started.
