This time last year the world looked completely different. Churches were shuttered, borders were closed and the world was shut down. Though things have improved somewhat since last year, many are seeking hope as they try to come to terms with the state of the world today.
This Good Friday, Will Graham will deliver a message of hope during a 30-minute special that will be livestreamed from the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Carolina, Friday (April 2) at 4 p.m. ET.
The son of evangelist Franklin Graham and executive director of the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove will be joined by award-winning Christian musical artist Aaron Shust as he shares about the cross and the promise for all who trust and believe in Jesus Christ.
“The cross is one of the most common symbols of the Christian faith. It seems like everywhere you look, you’ll see a cross,” Will said. “But what did Jesus actually accomplish on the cross? What did His incredible suffering and sacrifice do for mankind, and why does it still matter to you and me? I’ll share about what happened on the cross, and how it impacts eternity for each of us as we call upon Jesus as Savior.”
In addition to the original airing of the livestream, Will’s message will be translated into American Sign Language (ASL) and rebroadcast at 5 p.m. ET on BGEA’s ASL Facebook page. Later in the evening, at 8 p.m. ET, a Spanish-translated message by Will is scheduled to air as part of a Good Friday service hosted by Christian music artist Marcos Witt. This program will be available on BGEA’s Paz Con Dios Facebook page, as well as many other online, radio and television outlets.
The Good Friday service will be Will’s eighth streaming event since the pandemic forced his 2020 in-person evangelistic Celebrations to be postponed. His online outreaches thus far have garnered more than 1.5 million views from 78 countries. More than 4,500 have registered decisions for Christ.
Join the Good Friday service online at 4 p.m. ET this Friday, April 2. Be sure to invite your friends and family to watch with you virtually. The event will also be livestreamed on Facebook:
