UNITED KINGDOM — Following the successful God Loves You Tour events in Liverpool, South Wales, Sheffield, and London last year, when thousands of people heard a message of hope and God’s love from the Bible, Rev Franklin Graham and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) have remained committed to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ across the UK.
‘We are excited to return to London again this year and to have an opportunity to preach the Gospel in Glasgow,’ Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, said. ‘We are grateful for the thousands of Christians and hundreds of churches that have stood alongside us in recent years and continued praying for this tour to come to their cities. We saw hundreds of people turn to Jesus Christ in faith last year, and we believe this is God’s timing for many more people in London and Glasgow to hear the message of God’s great love for them.’
In preparation for the upcoming outreach in London, Christians from nearly 1,000 churches across the city are partnering with Rev Graham and BGEA because they believe there is a continued need for the hope-filled message of the Bible to be shared in their communities.
‘Last year’s God Loves You Tour was a blessing to many people in London. Churches across this city united together to invite people to hear about Jesus Christ’s love and forgiveness for them and the eternal hope available in Him,’ said Rev Hany Abdelmasih, Regional Minister with London Baptists. ‘London is the place where you find the world, and it is also a place that needs the Good News of Christ proclaimed again and again. I look forward to what God will do through Rev Franklin Graham and the God Loves You Tour this year!’
This month’s tour stop in London will feature award-winning musical guests, including CeCe Winans, a 15-time Grammy winner and the best-selling female Gospel artist of all time; three-time Grammy winner Michael W. Smith; and Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling Newsboys, who have had 33 No. 1 radio hits.
