says about his world famous grandfather, Evangelist Billy Graham:
“I’m not trying to be the next Billy Graham;
I’m just Will Graham,” says the ordained minister. “I have
a burden in my heart to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If that’s to an
arena full of people or one person on the street, I will do whatever God is
calling me to do.” (Quotes in this content are from BGEA publications.)
In Will’s visiting Ferguson, site of great unrest in
2014 that received worldwide attention, he takes part and supports Ferguson’s
and St. Louis’ “We are One” thrust. It is an effort to, among other
objectives, to be an answer to the prayer of Jesus in John 17: 20 – 23 that
those who are his would be “one!” While efforts that oppose biblical faith -- that
dilute the focus and truth of the Word of God – we remember that Jesus wanted
biblical unity among those who are His.
So Will Graham, Vice-President of the Billy Graham
Evangelistic Association – his father Franklin is the President – supports us
and shares the Gospel of Jesus at the “We are One” focus. The event’s objective
is prayer, repentance, and seeking biblical unity pertaining especially to the
trials of Ferguson.
Perhaps we could think of his Ferguson – occurring the
last week of Will’s being in his 30’s! Many of us celebrate his 40th
birthday, January 30, 2015!.
More: “And, God did call
Will. In his teen years, Will attended a Bible camp where he committed his life
to serving the Lord in ministry. ‘At age 15, I told the Lord, ‘I’ll do whatever
You want me to do. If it’s flying airplanes, telling people in Asia or South
America about Jesus, that’s fine. If You want me doing Crusades, that’s fine.
If You want me to type on a computer somewhere, I’m fine with that. Just use me
for ministry.’” ...
About Will’s ministry: “The first of Will’s
crusade-style events – called Celebrations – took place in 2006 in Leduc,
Alberta, Canada. His first Celebration on United States soil came later that
year in Gastonia, N.C. Since then, he has held evangelistic outreaches on six
continents around the world.
Another time of radio followed the one available here and
will air later. Will offered to do more in the future.
