Veteran evangelist Billy Graham is releasing a new 30-minute outreach video on 7 November, to mark the 60th anniversary of his evangelistic meetings at Haringey Arena in London in 1954 that saw more than 1.75m people attend over 12 weeks, and thousands come to faith in Christ. The date also celebrates his 96th birthday.
The video programme, entitled The Cross, mixes recent interview footage of Billy Graham with compelling testimonies of how Grammy Award-winning hip hop artists Lecrae and singer-songwriter Lacey Sturm came to follow Jesus. It forms a central part of the My Hope UK with Billy Graham campaign, which was launched this week at Lambeth Palace. More ...
My Hope UK puts the focus on partnering with local churches to support them as they influence their communities and present the Gospel in a compelling and personal way to those around them.
Steve Rhoads, Vice President for My Hope UK, says: "Evangelism is clearly the hardest activity for the Church, but it's also the one most closely tied to the health and growth of the local church. We want to come alongside pastors and church leaders across Britain and help them, as they equip and encourage their congregations to reach out in love and share their faith."
Churches and individuals will be encouraged to pray and reach out to neighbours, family and friends, inviting them to watch The Cross together at a local event, whether it's in a church, a home, a community venue or a local cinema.
"No matter how an individual or church uses these My Hope UK resources, it begins with prayer," adds Steve Rhoads. "It starts as individuals begin to pray specifically for people they know who need the hope found in a relationship with Jesus Christ."
