Chaplains from the Charlotte-based Billy Graham Evangelistic Association were in San Bernardino, Calif., on Thursday (Dec. 3) to offer spiritual and emotional care for those affected by Wednesday's mass shooting there.

This is the third shooting-related deployment of the BGEA's Rapid Response Team since October. Previously, chaplains were sent to Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore., and were in Paris after the Nov. 13 shootings in the French capital. Tim Funk
