Evangelist Billy Graham has brought the Gospel message to the masses for 60 years, and on Monday, March 4, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association extended the influence of his ministry with the release of the first installment of My Hope America with Billy Graham.
The My Hope America program
"The message I give will be presented in a fresh format, different from preaching at a Crusade, but the same Gospel. I believe we will see God work in a mighty way."
On Sunday, March 3, those attending the National Religious Broadcasters 2013 Convention had the opportunity to get a sneak peek at Graham's first riveting installment, the Defining Moments. This video is designed to spread the truth of the Gospel through the My Hope America project. In it Billy Graham addressed sin.
"God looks at your heart and God sees that you have a spiritual disease, and that spiritual heart disease is called sin." – Billy Graham
Franklin Graham spearheading the project
Franklin Graham, Billy Graham's son who is also an evangelist, is spearheading his father's vision and outreach. The My Hope America program is working in partnership with thousands of churches across the country and the goal is to call the entire nation to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
"At the climax of My Hope one year from now, if God enables me, I want to call the entire nation to repentance and lasting hope in Jesus Christ. The message I give will be presented in a fresh format, different from preaching at a Crusade, but the same Gospel. I believe we will see God work in a mighty way." – Billy Graham
Defining Moments video
Defining Moments is a 30 minute video that tells the redemption stories of three people: NFL player David Tyree, illusionist Jim Munroe, and musical artist Lacey Sturm. Each of them tell the story of how their successful careers were not enough. They still faced struggles and searched for hope amid it all. They found that hope in Jesus Christ. The Defining Moments video and others in the My Hope series will be available in a number of formats.
"The things that are broken in your heart and life can be restored in Christ, if you put your faith and your obedience in Him." Billy Graham Defining Moments
The My Hope America with Billy Graham is a grassroots movement designed to equip the saints to do the work of reaching the lost. The project encourages people to use the program in their own homes where videos like Defining Moments will open opportunities for meaningful conversations and will work as a catalyst to share the hope found in Jesus Christ.
