Billy Graham Center

Research tells us that nearly 80% of unchurched people said they would engage in a faith conversation if their Christian friends asked. Unfortunately, only 39% of Christians have actually shared how to become a Christian with someone in the past six months. The Billy Graham Center is a world hub of inspiration & training for mission and evangelism. We exist to help Christians show & share the love of Jesus in our broken and hurting world.
