from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association


The Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (BG-RRT) deployed on Feb. 7 to Memphis, Tennessee, after a massive ice storm caused major power outages and downed trees.

“As we see the many lives impacted because of this ice storm in Memphis, our hearts are heavy for those who have had great loss,” said Josh Holland, international director of the BG-RRT. “Our crisis-trained chaplains will be there to provide emotional and spiritual care as the area begins the recovery process.”

In addition, the team’s Mobile Ministry Center, a vehicle that serves as a safe, warm area for spiritual conversations and prayer, has been parked in the region for locals to visit.
