MEDIA ALERT—THIS TUESDAY: Franklin Graham launches Route 66 God Loves You Tour in Albuquerque

WHO:
Evangelist Franklin Graham is bringing a message of hope to Albuquerque during the Route 66 God Loves You Tour. The program will include live performances by Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling Newsboys, five-time Latin Grammy-winner Marcos Witt, and award-winning guitarist Dennis Agajanian. The event is free, family-friendly, and all are welcome.

WHAT:
The 2,000-mile Route 66 God Loves You Tour is an outreach of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and it is visiting eight cities along the historic highway at a time when many people are gripped by fear and uncertainty. During each event, Franklin Graham will remind people there is hope and God hasn’t forgotten them. A network of churches and pastors in Albuquerque are working with Graham because they say the life-changing message of the Bible needs to be shared in their community. Over the past six years, more than half a million people have attended Graham’s tours across all 50 states.

WHEN:
Tuesday, Sept. 28
Franklin Graham’s media availability is at 6:15 p.m. and the event begins at 7 p.m.

WHERE:
Expo New Mexico
300 San Pedro Dr. NE
Albuquerque, NM 87108

WHY:
“New Mexico has been hit hard the past year and a half, and a cloud of anxiety has settled over many people’s hearts. Depression and suicide are on the rise, and hopelessness is spreading its tentacles,” said Skip Heitzig, senior pastor of Calvary Church and Graham’s longtime friend. “Only the message of God’s love can break through and make a difference. Franklin Graham’s clear presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is exactly the prescription that is needed.”

MEDIA:
Media are invited to cover the Route 66 God Loves You Tour. The media availability with Franklin Graham will be socially distanced. A microphone stand will be set up 8 feet away—wireless stick mics and boom mics are preferred. Please contact Mark Barber at (828) 386-5803 or mebarber@bgea.org with any questions.
