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

Evangelist Franklin Graham is bringing a message of hope to St. Louis 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 St. Louis 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.

“Many people feel alone and some are even depressed because of the pandemic. We’ve found the more connected people are to Jesus Christ, the more they are able to feel a sense of community,” said Kendall Granger, pastor of New Life Community Church in East St. Louis. “People are discovering how real Jesus is in their life when they need Him most, and the God Loves You Tour is coming to St. Louis to share this Good News.”

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 with any questions.
