Billy Graham Rapid Response Team Deploys Twice in September


The Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (BG-RRT) deployed twice during the month of September as other months-long deployments continue.
BG-RRT chaplains deployed to Capitol Heights, Maryland, to provide emotional and spiritual support after a shooting killed two employees at a senior living community. 
In Pelham, Alabama, a storm system dumped as much as 13 inches of rain resulting in severe flooding. Chaplains deployed, alongside Samaritan’s Purse, as the town began the recovery process.
Additional teams of chaplains continue to serve at three locations in Louisiana after Hurricane Ida hit in late August, and in Detroit, Michigan, after a flooding event in July. 
The BG-RRT has deployed 41 times this year, sending out more than 970 chaplains across the United States. Chaplains have prayed with more than 28,000 people this year alone.
