Franklin Graham shares message of God’s Love in UK

Franklin Graham kicked off the God Loves You Tour UK in Liverpool on May 14. Graham worked with Christians from more than 2,000 churches across the United Kingdom to bring the God Loves You Tour to the U.K. The family-friendly events featured live music and a message of hope.

“This Good News has the power to change your life forever, and that’s why my father preached this same message here over the course of more than three decades,” said Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. 

The God Loves You Tour continued from Liverpool with stops in South Wales and Sheffield. The tour will conclude in London on July 16. For more information about the God Loves You Tour UK, visit God Loves You Tour UK.


Eternity is impacted at the Tasmania Celebration with Will Graham in Hobart and Launceston

More than 5,400 people attended the Tasmania Celebration with Will Graham in Hobart (May 21) and Launceston (May 27-29), Tasmania, an island state off the southeast coast of Australia. Throughout the series of events, Will preached on the cross and gave those in attendance an opportunity to begin a relationship with Jesus.

“I believe there are a lot of longing souls here tonight, hungry souls. I want you to know you can find everything you’re looking for in a personal relationship with Jesus,” Will Graham told the crowd during the closing service in Launceston. “God thinks you’re worth everything and He’s willing to die for you, to have a relationship with you. God can come into your life and change your life tonight. But you’ve got to be willing to come to Him.”

Between the two cities, hundreds of people – particularly youth between the ages of 10 to 18 – placed their faith in Christ during the Tasmania Celebration.

In June, Will Graham will hold the Rappahannock Area Celebration, a one-day event in Fredericksburg, Virginia. In July, he will travel to South Dakota to hold the Native Peoples Tour on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud reservations.


Billy Graham Rapid Response Team deploys to seven areas in May

The month of May proved busy for the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (BG-RRT) as they deployed to seven locations following man-made and natural disasters.

Crisis-trained chaplains deployed to Poland to help comfort Ukrainian refugees who fled from the conflict. RRT chaplains were also sent to Seminole, Oklahoma; Rockingham, North Carolina; Brookings, South Dakota; and Wabash County, Illinois, after severe storms swept through those areas.

Chaplains also responded to the grocery store shooting in Buffalo, New York, and the mass school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, where 19 students and two teachers were killed. They were able to provide spiritual and emotional support as the community grieved. On Cissie Graham Lynch’s Fearless podcast, two chaplains who were in Uvalde within two hours share their experience in responding to this tragedy. Listen to the full episode at

In addition to all these deployments, chaplains continue to minister to people in Ukraine at Samaritan’s Purse Emergency Field Hospitals.
