It was toward the end of his career where his life with Christ began, and through Him, Strawberry was able to overcome many personal struggles that plagued him. He now serves as a pastor and founder of Strawberry Ministries. Along with his wife, Tracy, the Strawberrys travel to various parts of the country to share the story of God’s redemptive power in their lives. This event is currently sold out.

Special Exhibit: Billy Graham – An Extraordinary Journey ― On Feb. 21, 2018, Billy Graham’s hope and greatest longing was realized as he entered heaven. Today, he is in the presence of his Savior, Jesus Christ. God worked through Mr. Graham’s death much like He did through his life, using the events surrounding his passing to open hearts and change lives for eternity through the power of the Gospel. This special exhibit shares the remarkable impact of the events commemorating Billy Graham’s life and ministry—and demonstrates how God is continuing this legacy of evangelism to “bring salvation to the ends of the earth” (Acts 13:47).
Browse fascinating photos, never-before-seen memorabilia, and testimonies from those who have been impacted since Billy Graham’s passing. Located in the lobby of the Billy Graham Library.
