BCSEF proudly announces 2015 Spring Banquet Speaker
Franklin Graham President and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic
William Franklin Graham, III, born July 14, 1952, is the fourth of five children born to evangelist Billy Graham and his wife, Ruth Bell Graham. He was born into a heritage rich in Christian ministry. By the time of Franklin’s birth, his father, Billy Graham was already known around the world as a spiritual leader.
At age 22, after a period of rebellion and traveling the world, Franklin committed his life to Jesus Christ while alone in a hotel room in Jerusalem. Soon after that, Dr. Bob Pierce, founder of Samaritan’s Purse (and World Vision), invited Franklin to join him on a six-week mission to Asia. It was during that time that Franklin felt a calling to work with hurting people in areas of the world affected by war, famine, disease, and natural disasters.
Franklin Graham has devoted his life to meeting the needs of people around the world and proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He serves as President and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. As an evangelist for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, he has led crusades around the world.
Under his leadership, Samaritan’s Purse has met the needs of poor, sick, and suffering people in more than 100 countries. One of the organization’s most popular projects is Operation Christmas Child. Last Christmas season, some 8 million children around the world received shoe boxes filled with gifts and necessity items from families in North America, Europe, and Australia. Samaritan’s Purse has most recently been at the forefront of the fight against the Ebola crisis.
Franklin Graham will speak for the Billings Christian School Education Foundation’s 14th Annual Spring Banquet & Auction benefiting Billings Christian School. His words are guaranteed to both awe and inspire.
