Rev. Billy Graham: Just As I Am

billygraham18"My one purpose in life," he said, "is to help people find a personal relationship with God, which, I believe, comes through knowing Christ."

It is with sadness that we learned about the passing of The Rev. Billy Graham this morning, at the age of 99 in his North Carolina home.

Thank you, Rev. Graham, for your life-long dedication to sharing the Gospel.

His worldwide crusades and role as advisor to decades of U.S. presidents made him one of the best known religious figures of his time. Reverend Graham preached to more people in person than anyone in the history of Christianity. Since his ministry began in 1947, an estimated 215 million people in more than 185 countries and territories, with "hundreds of millions more" viewing him on television, video, film and webcasts, heard the life-saving message of The Gospel.

Graham, who had been in ill health for a number of years, was regularly listed in polls as one of the "Ten Most Admired Men in the World."
He had five children, 19 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren. His wife Ruth Graham died in June 2007 after 64 years of marriage.
