CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 13, 2023 –The Billy Graham Library will host a family-friendly, Biblically-focused Hispanic Heritage Celebration Day on Saturday, Sept. 23, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. as part of National Hispanic Heritage Month.
The day will include indoor and outdoor activities, guided Journey of Faith tours in Spanish, kids’ craft, and discounts in Ruth’s Attic bookstore – which carries a selection of Spanish-language Christian books. There will also be live music from Grammy-nominated Christian artist, Gilberto Daza.

The Hispanic Heritage Celebration Day at the Billy Graham Library is part of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s (BGEA) commitment to share the Gospel with the Spanish-speaking community. According to the Pew Research Center, Hispanic and Latino Americans are the second largest ethnic group in the U.S. Locally in Charlotte, that means 14.9%, or more than 133,000 Spanish-speaking residents call the Queen City home.
“We invite Hispanic families to join us to enjoy the whole Library, which is a very clear reflection of the heart of Billy and Ruth Graham,” said Dr. David Bruce, executive vice president of the Billy Graham Library. “Mr. Graham’s heart was deep in appreciation and love for peoples of all backgrounds. It all grew out of his desire to reach all peoples with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
Since Billy Graham’s first Crusade tour to Latin America in 1958, BGEA has been sharing the Gospel in Spanish-speaking countries. The BGEA continues to expand its efforts to reach the Spanish-speaking community in America with resources including online tools and materials, special events at the Billy Graham Library and the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove, and more.
