In the face of unforeseen disasters, "Masters of Disasters," also referred to as “MOD,” a faith-based non-profit organization, stands as a beacon of hope and support for those affected. The organization originated from a profound desire to address disaster response gaps. The catalyst was a flooding incident in Norwood, Cincinnati, close to the main location of Crossroads Church, where Darin Kroger was one of the volunteer individuals in the early days of MOD.
The journey began with a realization that, in the aftermath of disasters, there was a void that needed filling. With a background in international missions work, the church brought together a team to form an organization that could respond effectively to disasters. The first deployment occurred in the spring of 2017, responding to the hurricane that hit Houston in partnership with Hope Force International.
