  • (1888PressRelease) March 14, 2015 - The Nashville Church of Scientology is planning to recognize the United Nations World Civil Defense Day by hosting a forum with a speaker from the Tennessee Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD). VOAD will discuss how to be prepared for the worst and what to do in dire situations. Community members are welcome and invited to attend the forum which will take place on Friday, March 13th at 6pm in the Church of Scientology's community hall.

    World Civil Defense Day occurred on March 1st, and according to the International Civil Defense Organization, the day brings to the attention of the world public the vital importance of civil protection and raises awareness of the preparedness for, and prevention and self-protection measures in the event of accidents or disasters.

    Several of those attending will be from the Church of Scientology's core program, the Volunteer Ministers. Anyone of any culture or creed may train as a Volunteer Minister and use these tools to help their families and communities, and all are welcome to do so. Equipped with effective technology to resolve virtually any difficulty, Volunteer Ministers live by the motto: "No matter the problem, something can be done about it."

    Transcending all ethnic, cultural and religious boundaries, the Volunteer Ministers program is there for anyone in need of help. Volunteer Ministers training is available free of charge through the Scientology Volunteer Ministers website to anyone who wishes to help others.

    In creating the Volunteer Ministers program, L. Ron Hubbard wrote, "If one does not like the crime, cruelty, injustice and violence of this society, he can do something about it. He can become a Volunteer Minister and help civilize it, bring it conscience and kindness and love and freedom from travail by instilling into it trust, decency, honesty and tolerance."

    All are invited and welcome to attend this important discussion on disaster response on Friday, March 13 at 6pm in the Church of Scientology's community hall. For more information, visit or call the church at 615-687-4600.
