Since 1950, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has reached millions with the Gospel message through evangelism, training, and discipleship resources. Today, the BGEA’s Church Ministry continues to share the good news of God’s love through live evangelistic outreaches and church resources including Franklin Graham’s God Loves You Tour.

  • In 2016, Franklin Graham launched the Decision America Tour, which called people to pray and to engage in local civic opportunities in each of the 50 U.S. capitals, subsequently resulting in numerous regionally-focused tours, now called the God Loves You Tour. Visit for more information.
