CHARLOTTE, N.C., – Evangelist Will Graham will hold his final online evangelistic outreach of 2020, titled “Christmas with Will Graham: An Online Celebration,” on Sunday, Dec. 20, at 6 p.m. ET. Broadcasting live from the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove in Asheville, the event will feature music from Mark Christian, a reading of the biblical Christmas story by Kendra Graham (Will’s wife), and a historic Christmas clip of Will’s late grandfather Billy Graham, along with Will’s Christmas message.
“If there’s one word that seems to describe 2020, it’s fear,” said Will. “There’s only one true and lasting answer to the problem of fear, and that is the Prince of Peace — Jesus — whose birth we celebrate at Christmas. I’ll share how people can have a personal relationship with Him, bringing hope for today and for eternity.”
“Christmas with Will Graham” will be Will’s sixth streaming event of 2020. Earlier this year when the pandemic forced his in-person evangelistic gatherings (called Celebrations) to be postponed, Will pivoted into online outreaches. Thus far, approximately 834,000 people across 75 countries have viewed the livestreams, with more than 2,600 registering decisions for Christ.
Will’s message will be available on multiple Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) Facebook pages, including his own page (Facebook.com/WillGraham4). It will also be carried online at www.WillGrahamLive.com. The broadcast will be available for on-demand viewing following the live event.
Will also recently released a four-week Advent devotional titled “In the Presence of the King,” which focuses on the experiences and emotions of some of the people most closely impacted by the events of the first Christmas, including Mary, the shepherds, King Herod and the wise men. Will has offered the devotional for free as a digital download at www.BillyGraham.org/advent.
