Billy Graham Rapid Response Team Deploys Twice in July

from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s August 4th Newsletter


Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (BG-RRT) chaplains deployed to the Detroit, Michigan, area on July 7 as a result of severe flooding. BG-RRT chaplains have deployed a total of 27 times in 2021, with seven of those in response to flooding.

At the request of the police chief, BG-RRT chaplains also served law enforcement officers in Levelland, Texas, providing emotional and spiritual care after a SWAT commander was killed while responding to reports of an armed man in a residential area.

So far in 2021 nearly 600 chaplains have deployed across the country, praying with more than 15,000 people.
