Billy Graham’s Final Call to America

By Trevor Freeze

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.”
— Matthew 5:14

For Billy Graham, it’s always been about one thing.

From his 1949 tent revival in Los Angeles, to the 16-week New York Crusade in 1957, to more than 200,000 flocking to Flushing Meadows, N.Y. in 2005 to hear him preach one last time—it’s always been about the Gospel.

In November 2013, one event will attempt to send that message out to the United States and Canada at one singular time. It’s the biggest evangelistic undertaking for North America in the 60-plus-year history of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

The name of this endeavor: My Hope with Billy Graham.

“It could be Billy Graham’s final call to America to turn to God,” explains Preston Parrish, BGEA Vice President for My Hope with Billy Graham.

The method will change, but the message will be the same.

And the stakes have never been higher.

On the week of Billy Graham’s 95th birthday, Nov. 7, 2013 — Christians across the entire U.S., as well as Canada, will be invited to reach their nation like never before — one friend, one family member, one neighbor at a time.

Instead of filling a stadium or packing a park, My Hope with Billy Graham will take place in homes across America, where a 30-minute video presentation will be used as the catalyst to change hearts and lives.

Some have referred to My Hope as the “Living Room Crusade.” Individuals, either on their own or through their local churches, are being asked now to begin making a list of non-believers to pray for, people who are in need of the eternal and lasting hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ.  FULL  ARTICLE
