Remembering Billy Graham Jr.

Posted on by Youth for Christ

Dr. Billy Graham, the first employee of Youth For Christ, passed away Wednesday, February 21, 2018, at his home in Montreat, NC, at age 99.
Please join us in celebrating his life and legacy… A legacy that includes preaching the Gospel to nearly 215 million people in more than 185 countries and territories. Hundreds of millions more have been reached through television, video, film, and webcasts.
At Youth For Christ, we stand on the shoulders of Dr. Graham’s burning drive to communicate the life-changing message of Jesus Christ to young people. What began with humble beginnings has exploded into a worldwide movement. Today, Youth For Christ is made up of over 40,000 full-time, part-time and volunteer evangelists in over 133 nations who spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to millions of young people each year.

"The harvest fields are riper, the grain is thicker, and the instruments that technology has provided are sharper. I see no reason why we could not touch the entire youth population of the world with the good news of the Gospel...let's make that our goal."
