Evangelist Franklin Graham is bringing a message of hope to Maryland’s Eastern Shore for the fourth stop of the God Loves You Tidewater Tour. The program in Salisbury will include live performances by Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling Newsboys, five-time Latin Grammy-winner Marcos Witt, and award-winning musician Dennis Agajanian. The event is free, family-friendly, and all are welcome. In addition to serving as president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which shares the Good News of Jesus Christ around the world, Franklin Graham leads Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization with work in more than 170 countries and territories, including war-torn Ukraine.
The God Loves You Tidewater Tour is an outreach of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), and it is visiting six cities in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina this spring. During each event, Franklin Graham will remind people that God cares for them and has a purpose for their lives. Nearly 145 churches from the Eastern Shore region are working with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association because they say the life-changing message of the Bible needs to be shared in Wicomico County, Maryland. Over the past seven years, more than half a million people have attended Graham’s tours across all 50 states.

“The greatest need here on Maryland’s Eastern Shore is Jesus Christ. Suicide, opioid addiction, homelessness, anxiety have left many people hopeless,” said Mike Rittenhouse, lead pastor of 3C USA Church, which has campuses in Delmar and Dorchester County. “The God Loves You Tidewater Tour is coming to our community to share the life-changing Gospel message that there is hope in Christ.”
