Rick Taliaferro, a long-time member of SCUMC and dentist by trade, leads our congregation regarding Haiti relief. We support Rick and his teams that have gone to Haiti numerous times where they participate in dental ministry, mainly extracting irreparable decayed teeth, and offer education classes on improving dental health. SCUMC members have also traveled to Haiti in the past on mission trips to rebuild homes and churches. Rick has additionally gone to Jamaica with a team from the Christian Dental Society (CDS) to provide dental care.
