PHOTOS: Chaplains Find Respite, Renewal During Training at The Cove

By TJ Petrino   •   June 21, 2017

Experienced and aspiring Billy Graham Rapid Response Team chaplains participated in a training session in mid-June at the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove.
Prayer is at the core of what chaplains do, not only on deployment, but in their daily lives.
Praising the Lord in worship.
Chaplains participated in breakout sessions designed to equip them as they offer emotional and spiritual care on deployments. Learn more about becoming a chaplain.
Breaks between sessions gave the chaplains time to visit and get to know one another at The Cove.
"Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another." —Proverbs 27:17.
Enjoying the beautiful weather.
The Rapid Response Team's Mobile Ministry Center was set up for chaplains to visit. This center often is visible during stateside deployments and offers chaplains a place to listen, talk and pray with hurting people.
"I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth." —Genesis 9:13. Please keep these chaplains in your prayers as they share the love of Jesus Christ on future deployments.

    Always uplifting praise, teaching and opportunity for new and renewed friendships! Such a blessing to attend and learn! It is difficult to leave such a beautiful, peaceful venue, not a television on site! A true retreat! I feel refueled and ready to serve! Thank you, Cove staff, for exemplary care!

    RRT training at The Cove is absolutely wonderful. It was especially important to me this year. Thank you chaplain colleagues for your prayers. Prayer changes things!

  3. Dr. Suzy Moravick says:

    I have been a RRT chaplain since 2006 and look forward to being back on the road with my fellow chaplains someday soon. I miss the ministry very much, however, God has me caring for my 84-year-old mother at this time. Until I return to the ministry, I pray for all RRT chaplains as they share the love of Christ to the world. Blessings, Dr. Suzy Moravick, Lincolndale, NY
