For national and international disaster responses, the Rock Church partners with the Christian relief ministry Crisis Response International (CRI). CRI manages operations, resources and volunteers to carry out various tasks and services that assist victims of disaster and crisis nationally and internationally. Operations vary upon the size and scope of the disaster, but ultimately the goal is to see hearts comforted and turned to Jesus Christ through demonstrations of God’s service, mercy and love.
The Billy Graham Evangelical Association (BGEA) Rapid Response Ministry Team is a ministry of crisis trained volunteer chaplains who deploy in the aftermath of a disaster to respond to the emotional and spiritual needs of disaster victims and people in crisis. The Rapid Response Team ministry was developed to share Jesus Christ in the midst of crisis and disasters. BGEA currently has chaplains in the United States, Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. These volunteer chaplains are carefully selected and trained to demonstrate the compassion of Jesus Christ and appropriately share God’s hope through the One who “heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3).
