Idaho Falls, Idaho, Jan. 26, 2023 – More than 230 people from across the region gathered on Thursday night, Jan. 26, in Idaho Falls, to officially launch planning for the upcoming Look Up Tour with Will Graham. The evangelistic outreach, which is scheduled for Sept. 23-24 at the Mountain America Center, will feature music from Christian artists and encouraging messages from Will Graham. Graham is the grandson of the late evangelist Billy Graham and son of Franklin Graham.
“As we look at the world around us, many people are experiencing fear and anxiety. They are looking for meaning and purpose. They want to know that their life matters. The answer to all of these struggles can be found in Jesus Christ,” said Graham. “I’m coming to Idaho Falls to share how people can find hope, peace and love, not just for today, but for eternity.”
A local committee comprised of leaders from the Idaho Falls area, representing several different churches and denominations, has been formed to help guide the Look Up Tour process in partnership with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
“Many people in our community are suffering from hopelessness and depression. Life is confusing. What is the truth? Where is the hope? The world continues to offer empty solutions to such questions because the truth of these questions are answered spiritually,” said Steve Winn, who is helping to lead the local Look Up Tour effort. “As the church body works together to proclaim the Good News of Jesus, I believe God will reveal His saving grace and power in such a way as to awaken us to His purposes in Southeast Idaho.”
Tyler Perkins, executive director of the Idaho Falls Rescue Mission, added, “The Look Up Tour is important to our region because our region desperately needs it! I anticipate and already see great strides in church unity and the larger church body coming together for one purpose—to reach people in our region with the Gospel.”
A nearly continuous stream of activities and planning will take place across the region between now and the Look Up Tour in September, including prayer rallies, workshops and community gatherings. Visit www.LookUpTour.org/IdahoFalls for details and information.
