MINISTRIES

Rapid Response Team

In July 2011 we established the ‘Rapid Response Team’, a ministry that trains and equips men and women to be chaplains, able to provide emotional and spiritual support to people affected by disasters throughout Australia and New Zealand. Anyone interested in becoming a chaplain can begin the process by attending a ‘Sharing Hope in Crisis’ seminar.

Sharing Hope in Crisis

The one-day ‘Sharing Hope in Crisis’ seminar (SHIC) prepares Christian men and women to give appropriate emotional and spiritual care to people experiencing tragedy and equips them with practical skills for sharing God’s love and comfort with people in crisis.

Some will do the training to relate to people in their immediate sphere of influence who are hurting for whatever reason. Others will undertake additional training and become volunteer chaplains who deploy in the aftermath of a disaster to bring emotional and spiritual care and support to those in greatest need. This training is internationally recognised and we are fortunate to be able to present this training in house.

We set ourselves an enormous task when we started this project.

For more information on attending a Sharing Hope in Crisis seminar or hosting Sharing Hope in Crisis at your church, please email rrt@bgea.org.au.

Reality Events

We reach out to people with the gospel in a variety of ways including discipleship programs for children, chaplaincy for the hurting and with the proclamation of the gospel at Reality Events.  Reality Events are crusades with Will Graham, Billy Graham’s grandson.  These events are preceded by equipping of the churches with Billy Graham Evangelism Association courses and training to help people to reach out during and after the crusades.

For more information on Reality Events and dates with Will Graham have a look at the Reality Events page.
