MEDIA ALERT—THIS THURSDAY: Franklin Graham launches Route 66 God Loves You Tour in Flagstaff

WHO:
Evangelist Franklin Graham is bringing a message of hope to Flagstaff 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 Flagstaff 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.

Franklin Graham’s media availability is at 6:15 p.m. and the event begins at 7 p.m.

WHERE:

WHY:
“The pandemic has added stress to each of our lives. No one is untouched by the hopelessness and uncertainty of our future,” said Mark Smith, pastor of Grace Community Church in Flagstaff. “We all need to hear a message of hope, and Franklin Graham is coming to share that hope is found in knowing there is a God who made us, loves us, and invites us to know Him.”
