Advisory | Help CEN ReadyBatonRouge Respond Today!

Three Police officers are reported to be dead, three officers are wounded and one is in critical condition.  Two suspects remain at large while one suspect is dead from an active shooter incident in Baton Rouge LA today. CEN is responding by calling all Christians to prayer and supporting ReadyBatonRouge to assist the community in building bridges between local law enforcement and the community.

CEN is monitoring the unfolding situation, bringing awareness to the Christian community and setting up a virtual response team to support ReadyBatonRouge. CEN is activating its chaplaincy network on the heels of the Dallas, TX Police Department incident. 

CEN stands with Baton Rouge, LA Mayor who has called for Christian churches, in particular, to bring the Hope of Christ by tangibly bringing the community together to bridge the gap between the law enforcement and the community. CEN ReadyBatonRouge is responding to that call by assisting local leaders to identify their unique critical needs by offering timely biblical principles to help their community come into agreement to meet those needs together, and by supporting their biblical response to the actual crisis. 

ReadyCity and ReadyChurch FREE trainings equip churches and city networks in these critical times to self-organize and mobilize to respond biblically for such a time as this.  Learn More >>
