‘Billy Graham launched the Lausanne Movement in 1974. In turn, the U.S. Lausanne Committee gave birth to the Mission America Coalition in 1993. Billy Graham served as our Honorary Chair from that time on. I thank God for Billy Graham and his life mission to share the gospel with millions.’
~Paul Cedar, Honorary Chairman. Mission America Coalition
Dear Friends,

Today we honor one of the giants of the faith in Dr. Billy Graham. He had one message: Jesus. While other preachers detoured into politics or social issues, Dr. Graham had a single mindedness on the Gospel because he believed that more than people needed his opinion on issues, they needed to know the greatest leader who ever lived, Jesus of Nazareth.

On this day, we mourn the loss of more than a great evangelist. He was a pioneer in a time of same old, a bridge builder in an age of division, and a faithful ambassador for the cause of Christ. If there’s one word to describe this life, it’s FAITHFUL. In his own words,  

"Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don't you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God." -Billy Graham

Because of the legacy of Dr Graham, Mission America is pressing forward to call a new generation to Jesus. This fall, we will re-launch MAC  at our National Gathering, Oct 18-20th in Dallas, TX . We believe this time has the potential to be historic for the cause of evangelism in our day. Of special significance, this year’s Annual Gathering will lead up to a massive training effort called TOGETHER 2018, where we hope to equip over 100,000 millenials to take the Gospel to their schools, cities and nation.

While today we remember a hero of the faith, Billy Graham was simply a farm boy from North Carolina who surrendered to God’s call for his life. The same God is still calling to-day and I believe we need a generation willing to say YES, like Billy Graham did, to reach our generation.

Let’s keep saying yes!

On Mission,

Nick Hall
