Franklin Graham to bring 1,500-mile God Loves You Frontera Tour to Chula Vista, California

Tour will bring live music and a life-changing message of hope to the southern border

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 14, 2024 — Franklin Graham is going to the U.S.-Mexico border to share a message of God’s love. The final night of the upcoming tour will be in Chula Vista, California, on Saturday, March 9. The God Loves You Frontera Tour will visit 10 cities, starting at the Gulf of Mexico and going all the way to the Pacific.

More than 205 churches in San Diego County are working with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) to bring this exciting evening of music and hope to southern California.

“We are coming to the southern border because it is one of the neediest areas of our country at this time, and people need to hear a message of hope,” said Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. “Everyone along the border is overwhelmed—the churches, the law enforcement agencies, the residents, those they’re trying to help, as well as the people coming into our country. There are a lot of hungry hearts and hurting people, so I’m coming to the border to tell everyone about God’s Son, Jesus Christ, and how He can make a difference in our lives if we put our faith and our trust in Him.”

Over 1,000 churches in Texas, Arizona and California are partnering with BGEA for this 10-city tour because they want to reach their communities with a message of God’s love.

The event is free and everyone is invited to attend. On March 9, live music will begin at 5 p.m. at the North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre. 

“Chula Vista is a unique place. There are people of two different worlds living right next to each other. Our church is just a few miles away from the largest border crossing in the country, and it is difficult for us to respond to all the needs of the people,” said pastor Steve Boschen of Oceanview Church in Chula Vista. “The God Loves You Frontera Tour is an opportunity for people of all backgrounds in Chula Vista to come together and hear a message of God’s love. Jesus is the difference that we need in our community.”

Iconic Spanish-speaking Christian music artist, Marcos Witt, will perform in Spanish and English at each tour stop. He has received six Latin Grammys and two Billboard awards. Popular Grammy-nominated music artist Jeremy Camp  and Taya, formerly of Hillsong UNITED and best known for “Oceans,” one of the most popular songs in Christian music history, will also perform. Award-winning musician Dennis Agajanian, who has performed at Billy Graham’s and Franklin Graham’s evangelistic events for more than 45 years, will be joining the tour as well.
