MY HOPE WITH BILLY GRAHAM 2014
Last year, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association partnered with churches all over America using the 30-minute program The Cross to share the wonderful Gospel of Jesus Christ. They saw God answer prayers as He drew over 100,000 people into a personal relationship with His Son. Many people requested that they to do a similar type evangelistic thrust again this year. They believe God wants to continue to reach people with the Gospel through this type of outreach with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
Consequently, this November of 2014, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association will release a new My Hope with Billy Graham film, which Alta Woods Baptist, you and I can use to share the Gospel in our communities. The 30-minute program, Heaven, will feature powerful, real-life stories and a never-before-released message from Billy Graham. Like last year, Dvd's will be available from BGEA for churches and individuals to show this message to neighbors, friends, and relatives.
Each My Hope outreach begins and ends with prayer, and it’s not too early—or too late—to get started. Won’t you join us?
