Rapid Response Team

Minister to hurting people in your community or around the world

Everyone faces personal crisis or experiences grief sometime in life – whether it is the death of a loved one, illness, job loss or other issues. At a time when people need hope the most, many suffer in silence. Is God stirring your heart to reach out in compassion to hurting people in your community? The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) can help you learn to share the love of Christ with your friends, neighbours and colleagues during the tragedies of everyday life.

You can also help hurting people across the UK or around the world. The Rapid Response Team trains and develops teams of chaplains to give emotional and spiritual care in the aftermath of a disaster. Will you consider these opportunities to let God use you to minister to others?

Volunteer chaplains from the Rapid Response Team have responded to several crises both in the UK and on mainland Europe, sharing hope in seemingly hopeless situations. Follow the story on our news page.
