Evangelist Franklin Graham is bringing a message of hope to Amarillo 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.
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 Amarillo 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.

“The past 18 months have been a time of great uncertainty, loss, and even hopelessness for many people, but the good news for everyone is that there is hope,” said Dr. Doug Melton, pastor of Southern Hills Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. “The message of Jesus Christ changed Franklin Graham’s life, and he’s coming here to share the same story of God’s love that can change our lives too.”
