MEDIA ALERT—THIS SUNDAY: Franklin Graham brings God Loves You Tour 2022 to Rochester

WHO:
Evangelist Franklin Graham is bringing a message of hope to Rochester for the closing night of the God Loves You Tour 2022. The program will include live performances by Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling Newsboys 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, 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 and Florida, which was just devastated by Hurricane Ian.  

WHAT:               
The 1,000-mile God Loves You Tour 2022 is an outreach of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), and it is visiting six cities across five states this fall. During each event, Franklin Graham will remind people that God cares for them and has a purpose for their lives. More than 110 churches in the Rochester area are working with BGEA because they say the life-changing message of the Bible needs to be shared in their community. Over the past seven years, more than half a million people have attended Graham’s tours across all 50 states.

WHEN:               
Sunday, Oct. 2
Franklin Graham’s media availability is at 3:15 p.m. and the live music starts at 3:30 p.m.

WHERE:             
Soldiers Memorial Field Park
300 Seventh Street SW
Rochester, MN 55902

WHY:
Nathan Brand, senior pastor of Berean Community Church, said, “In these days of uncertainty, fear, brokenness and despair, it is clear that we cannot save ourselves personally or as a society. The only thing that can overcome and transcend these challenges is the love of God in the transforming, life-giving work of Jesus Christ. That is what the God Loves You Tour is about and why we want to invite all in the Rochester area to be a part of it!”
