CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WSPA) – A group of crisis-trained chaplains with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team is headed to Munich, Germany after the deadly shooting that happened on Friday.
The chaplains will be there to offer emotional and spiritual support for the people of Munich after 9 were killed and 16 more were injured.
Three chaplains, including one who speaks German, will be meeting with local church leaders, while 5 other German-speaking chaplains are on stand-by.
The deployment to Munich marks the 9th time in the last 10 months that the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team has sent chaplains into areas involved in mass shootings or terror attacks.
Chaplains are currently ministering in Baton Rouge after 3 police officers were shot last week, and in Nice, after 84 people were killed and more than 300 were injured.
“As we again see the face of evil in the news, chaplains are in Munich today to meet with churches to offer support and assistance and provide the emotional and spiritual care for the many people who have been traumatized,” said Jack Munday, international director of the Rapid Response Team.
