Billy Graham Rapid Response Team sends chaplains to Paris, Franklin Graham calls for more prayer

In response to the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris Friday night, a team of chaplains from the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team is headed to France’s capital city to offer emotional and spiritual care.
At the direction of Franklin Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), an international consortium of BGEA’s U.S., Canada and U.K. Rapid Response Teams has coordinated together to send six French-speaking, crisis-trained chaplains to offer emotional and spiritual care and support in the heart of Paris.
“Join me in praying for the French people,” Franklin Graham said, “all those injured and the loved ones of the victims of these barbaric attacks.”

Jack Munday, international director of the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team, added, “This has been reported as the worst tragedy in France since World War II. We want to encourage them, let them know we’re here to support them.”

The chaplains will be working directly with a church in Paris as well as up to three other Christian organizations. This will be the first BGEA internationally-coordinated relief effort since the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
Billy Graham’s ministry in Paris included four Crusades, most recently in 1986. BGEA’s Internet Evangelism ministry has partnered with Paris-based Jesus.net since 2011.
“We’ll be there for the people on the streets, the storekeepers, the café workers to listen and provide comfort,” Munday said. “They need to know that God loves them and hasn’t forgotten them.”
