SOMERSET, NEW JERSEY – Massive flood waters have completely engulfed the campus of Zarephath Christian Church in Somerset, NJ on Sunday when the waters from Hurricane Irene overflowed the banks of the Raritan river and canal, cresting the flood stage by fourteen feet. The church sanctuary, children’s ministry center, gym, church offices, college buildings and residences were decimated by the muddy water and debris throughout the entire 100 acre campus. Among the church buildings were the residences of dozens of church workers and missionaries who are now left homeless as their houses, dorms and apartments are submerged by floodwaters, in some areas floor-to-ceiling and reaching the second floors. No casualties were reported, but extensive damage and loss of properties were sustained in an environment where only limited flood insurance was accessible.

Anyone who wishes to volunteer or donate would be greatly appreciated and can reach the church at:

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
