Graham Launches Decision America Sunshine State Tour

Six-city tour will bring prayer, live music and life-changing message of hope to Jacksonville Beach, Florida, on January 11 

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 6, 2020 — Franklin Graham is coming to Florida to offer a message of God’s love to people in the Sunshine State. At the start of 2020, he will hold an evening of music and hope in six cities across the state. During each event, Graham will also invite people to join him in prayer, asking God to heal the issues that are plaguing our country.

“We have all felt how hard life is. With the struggles that many of us face in Jacksonville, it may feel hopeless but there is hope,” said Spike Hogan, pastor of Chet’s Creek Church. “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 Jacksonville too.”

On Jan. 11, Graham will kick off the opening night of the Decision America Sunshine State Tour in Jacksonville Beach. The festive, family-friendly event begins at 4 p.m. at Seawalk Pavilion.

Following the stop in Jacksonville Beach, the tour will continue across Florida with stops in Plant City, Panama City Beach, Key West, Boca Raton and Fort Myers.

“The good news of the Bible is God loves us and there is power in that message that can change Florida,” said Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. “Through this event, people will have the opportunity to make a decision that can impact their lives now and for eternity.”

Grammy-nominated music artist Jeremy Camp and award-winning guitarist Dennis Agajanian are also traveling with Graham on the Sunshine State Tour. They will perform live at each event. Camp first joined Graham for the Decision America Tour in 2018 when an estimated 120,000 people attended events in California, Oregon and Washington. Agajanian started traveling the world with Billy Graham more than 40 years ago and he has participated in more than 200 events with Franklin Graham.    

TheDecision America Sunshine State Tour is free and everyone is invited to attend.
