SHARING HOPE IN TIMES OF CRISIS
One of the crises of the U.S.A. in the 21 st century was what happened on 9/11. It prompted the late Dr. Billy Graham to instruct his staff to develop a rapid response to emotional and spiritual crises during the everyday tragedies of life. The Rapid Response Team Ministry was launched. Today it is in U.S.A., Canada, UK, and Australia. It is based on Psalm 147:3.
Volunteer chaplains are trained at on-site locations. Saturday, May 23 a Rapid Response Seminar will be held at Pinecrest Baptist Church. The cost is $45 and includes materials and lunch on premises. However, if enrollment exceeds capacity (384), participants will be permitted to grab lunch at nearby restaurants.
Rev. Reggie Hester is the lead contact for BGEA Rapid Response Seminar. Rev. Tom Potter is the coordinator for the PBA. BGEA can be reached at 1-877-247-2426. Charlotte NC local 1-704-401-2432.
