The Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (BG-RRT) deployed to a mass shooting at a Kroger grocery store in Collierville, Tennessee, and after a Sheriff’s deputy was shot during a traffic stop in Nassau County, Florida.
BG-RRT chaplains were welcomed with open arms in Collierville after a gunman killed one person and injured 14 others before taking his own life. Many people who were in the store at the time of the shooting stopped by the BG-RRT’s Mobile Ministry Center to ask for prayer and to tell their stories to the chaplains.
In Florida, Deputy Joshua Moyers died from his injuries after being shot during a traffic stop. The suspect led law enforcement officers on a five-day manhunt before he was taken into custody. Moyers’ mother called the BG-RRT to request that chaplains come to Nassau County to minister to the law enforcement officers in the area.
The BG-RRT has deployed 38 times this year, sending out more than 840 chaplains across the United States. Chaplains have prayed with nearly 25,000 people this year alone.
