BILLY GRAHAM TV
Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
One of the most well-known and well-respected ministers of our time, William Franklin “Billy” Graham is an American Christian evangelist who has spent decades preaching and teaching God’s Word around the globe. He is the founder of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (B.G.E.A.), an organisation focused on spreading the Word to as many people as possible. He has preached to nearly 215 million people in more than 185 countries and territories. Hundreds of millions more have been touched by his teachings found on television, in films, publications and webcasts.
After six decades on TV, Billy became principally known for hosting the annual Billy Graham Crusades until its conclusion in 2005. According to his staff, more than 3.2 million people responded to the invitation to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour during these crusades. He also hosted the “Hour of Decision,” which later became known as “The Hour of Power.” This programme is one of the longest running religious shows on television.
Mr. Graham has written 33 books, many of which became New York Times Best Sellers. His autobiography, “Just As I Am,” has achieved a “triple crown,” appearing simultaneously on the three top best-seller lists in one week.
Billy Graham’s son, Franklin, continues to walk in his father’s footsteps, leaving a lasting footprint on the world as a prominent Christian figure. Franklin serves as president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse. As an evangelist, missionary, speaker and author, he regularly addresses current moral and social issues, challenging Christians to make a difference around the globe. He also conducts Franklin Graham Festivals in various countries as an initiative of B.G.E.A. Currently, he has preached to more than 8.1 million people worldwide.
“My Hope” is a grassroots evangelism outreach that combines personal relationships with the power of modern media that features life-changing testimonies and powerful sermons from Billy and Franklin Graham. Their messages continue to impact lives today, advancing the vision that Billy set forth decades ago.
