What We Do


Our team is equipped to search, manage, or assist in missing incidents with mapping and tracking capabilities to efficiently search and log searched areas. We also have our own portable repeaters capability to insure communication in remote areas.


Our team is available to assist in the aftermath of tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. We can assist with clearing areas and searching for survivors as well as tracking and managing the search and recovery efforts. Our team is trained to use the NIMS framework as well as the FEMA marking system for seamless integration with other teams.

About Our Team

The Michigan/Indiana Search & Rescue team was established in 2023. Our 40 team members are from conservative Christian communities and are passionate about helping others.

Our goal is to be an effective resource to assist local law enforcement, EMS, fire departments, park services, and other responsible agencies with missing person searches.

We strive to maintain proficiency in our skills and work hard to stay current in training and equipment. Since our team is volunteer-based, we do not charge for our services. Our ultimate goal is to show the compassion and love of Christ to people in distress.
