Billy Graham Rapid Response Team Deploys to Miami Area after Building Collapse

from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s July 12th Newsletter


Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (BG-RRT) chaplains were on the ground in Surfside, Florida, to provide emotional and spiritual care just a few hours after a residential building collapsed.  
“Our crisis-trained chaplains are available to listen and we want all of those who were impacted—including the first responders who are part of the search and rescue efforts—to know that God still loves them and cares about them, even in the midst of such pain and sadness,” said Josh Holland, assistant director of the BG-RRT.
BG-RRT chaplains also deployed to Desha County, Arkansas, and Bolivar County, Mississippi, after severe flooding devastated the areas in June.
The BG-RRT has deployed 25 times since January 2021 with 513 chaplains praying with nearly 13,000 people.
