Sharing Hope in Crisis

This training is designed to equip you on what to say—and what not to say—to someone who is grieving. Come join in to be further equipped to know how to engage in conversation and share the hope of Jesus Christ with those who suffer from everyday tragedies of life. We offer this course in two different ways.

Both courses meet the suggested requirements for BG-RRT chaplaincy.

Sharing Hope in Jesus’ Name

Sharing Hope in Jesus’ Name Conference

The ministries of Billy Graham Rapid Response Team and Samaritan’s Purse come together annually to equip people on how to reach those suffering a crisis on a large scale.


  • “May I just say personally and from responses and comments: Thank you for bringing not only a meaningful teaching, but even more so the inspiration to serve and love our neighbor. The topics on the agenda were covered well, but of additional significance was the opening of eyes to SEE and the desire in hearts to RESPOND which will have untold application. Thanks for ‘sharing hope’!”
    –SHIC Participant from Franklin, TN

  • “I felt the compassion and grace that we learned could be put to good use in most any ministry. The SHIC course had numerous tips to gracefully help those
    that were hurting—and we have hurting people all around us.”
    –SHIC Participant from Melbourne, FL

  • “I felt the conference was very beneficial. The material was useful not only for occasional crisis situations, which attract the attention of the national or even international community, but also for crisis situations which people are experiencing daily.”
    –SHIC Participant from Melbourne, FL

  • “This may have been the best training for the local church I’ve witnessed. It was inspirational, educational and motivational. Compassion ministry is a critical pathway for the church today.”
    –Pastor Attending a New York SHIC Seminar

  • “At the undergraduate level, this is the best integration I’ve seen of Biblical principles and approach with crisis intervention.”
    –Regent University Psychology Professor

  • “Sharing Hope in Crisis not only equipped us for local ministry, but opened up an avenue of ministry for our people to respond nationally with BGEA.”
    –Cincinnati Care Pastor

  • “The Sharing Hope in Crisis training helped us think through some short-term missions concerns, and now we are excited about sending our people with Billy Graham Rapid Response Team as part of our missions ministry.”
    –San Diego Pastor

  • “This is the first time I’ve seen a strong Biblical approach to the crisis intervention training that I’ve had over the years. It’s great to bridge the two together!”
    –Haitian Pastor

  • “Two trained RRT chaplains are members of the church I pastor. They have been using and sharing their training in the church’s compassion ministry and we’ve seen the hurting find hope in a relationship with Jesus. What an encouragement their training has been to our church family!”
    –Pastor from Grass Lake, MI
