“Do I fear death?…No. I look forward to death, with great anticipation. I am looking forward to seeing God face to face. And that could happen any day.” (Billy Graham – Newsweek, July 4, 2005)
Join us to celebrate the home-going of Billy Graham this Friday, March 2nd @12p/11a CT. The service will be broadcast from Charlotte, North Carolina, and you can watch it LIVE on GEB.
The private funeral service for Billy Graham will be held in a tent outside the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte. The tent is symbolic of the “canvas cathedral” in which Graham conducted his 1949 Los Angeles Crusade that lasted eight weeks and propelled him to national prominence. Invited guests will include family, friends and dignitaries.
The funeral message will be given by Franklin Graham. Virginia “Gigi” Graham, Anne Graham Lotz, Ruth Graham and Ned Graham will also speak briefly. Other program participants include associate evangelists, musicians and friends who have been part of Billy Graham Crusades and the ministry of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association around the world.
