Billy Graham's “The Cross” to Air on His 95th Birthday

My Hope America The CrossOver the past several months, the Rev. Billy Graham has been working with a video crew in his home to film an all-new telecast that will air beginning November 7 on Christian networks, on FOX News, and on local TV stations in a number of cities.

Now, that new presentation, “The Cross,” is ready to be viewed by the tens of thousands across the country who have been invited by family and friends to watch the program as part of the My Hope America with Billy Graham outreach. And seasoned pastors who were treated to an early viewing of “The Cross” are calling it “powerful,” “as relevant for teens as it is for gray-haired saints,” and “one of the most anointed presentations of the Gospel I have ever seen in my whole life.”

“It’s a tremendously powerful program that has [Rev. Graham’s] message interwoven with captivating testimonies of lives changed by the living Christ,” adds Franklin Graham, President of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

In the much-anticipated presentation, Rev. Graham speaks directly and clearly about God’s love for us and our need for redemption.

Woven within Rev. Graham’s message are the faith stories of two popular musicians: rapper Lecrae Moore and former Flyleaf lead singer Lacey Sturm. Their testimonies serve as the background to a simple and relevant explanation by Rev. Graham of the saving power of the cross.

“With all my heart, I want to leave you with truth,” says the world-renowned evangelist.

To date, more than 20,000 churches have signed up to participate in My Hope America with Billy Graham and more are coming onboard daily. Believers who register with My Hope are being called “Matthews,” named after the disciple who hosted a social gathering in order to introduce his friends to Jesus. In November, the Matthews will open up their homes to the people they’ve been praying about.

In the weeks leading up to November 7 – Rev. Graham’s 95th birthday and the culmination of the My Hope America campaign – two additional projects have been released that shine light on what My Hope America is all about: Billy Graham’s new book, The Reason for My Hope: Salvation, and the star-studded music album My Hope: Songs Inspired by the Message and Mission of Billy Graham.

Both products are available for purchase at billygrahambookstore.org. More information on My Hope America with Billy Graham and “The Cross” is available at myhopewithbillygraham.org.
