Billy Graham

Billy Graham

The late evangelist Billy Graham preached the Gospel to more people in live audiences than anyone else in history and reached hundreds of millions more through television, video, film, and webcasts.

Born November 7, 1918, Billy Graham was raised on a dairy farm in Charlotte, NC. In the fall of 1934, he made a personal commitment to Christ through the ministry of Mordecai Ham, a traveling evangelist. Ordained in 1939, Billy attended Florida Bible Institute (now Trinity College in Florida). In 1943 he graduated from Wheaton College in Illinois and married fellow student Ruth McCue Bell. After graduating from college, he pastored the First Baptist Church in Western Springs, Illinois before joining Youth for Christ.

In 1950, he founded the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). Of the books he has authored, many have become top sellers. Billy has received numerous recognitions, awards, and honorary doctorates. In December 2001 he was presented with an honorary knighthood, Honorary Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE), for his international contribution to civic and religious life over 60 years.

On February 21, 2018, at the venerable age of ninety-nine, Billy Graham went home to be with the Lord. He is succeeded by his three daughters, two sons, many grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren.
