Evangelist Reverend, Billy Graham passed away this morning at his home in Montreat, North Carolina at the age of 99.

Graham is considered by many to be the most famous evangelist in U.S. history. During his career, he created his own ministry; The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

It’s said that Graham touched nearly 215 million people over six decades, and prayed with US presidents from Harry Truman to Barack Obama. Many other US Presidents relied on Graham’s spiritual counsel.

During the civil rights movements, he integrated seating at his revival meetings, and became a close ally of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. They preached together to millions who listened to their message.

 

Many are mourning the loss of Graham today.
