Franklin Graham Shares the Gospel with More Than 65,000 North Carolinians on Decision America Tour

franklingrahamFranklin Graham has traveled to Asia, Australia, and South America this year to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, but, in October, he returned to his home state of North Carolina for the Decision America Tar Heel State Tour.

On this eight-city tour, Graham shared the Gospel with more than 65,000 people. Over 4,800 people indicated making decisions for Christ in person, online, and through text. Stops included Fayetteville, Greenville, Wilmington, Raleigh, Greensboro, Hickory, Charlotte, and Asheville.

Each night, attendees heard a powerful message of hope from Franklin Graham, as well as live music from Jeremy Camp and Dennis Agajanian. The evening events concluded with a show of fireworks.

It’s been on Franklin Graham’s heart to share a message of God’s love with people in his home state—the place his late father, Billy Graham, called home for most of his 99 years of life.

“God loves you,” Graham said. “He sent His Son from heaven to this earth for your sins. You can leave this stadium forgiven tonight.”

In 2016, Graham visited all 50 state capitals as part of the original Decision America Tour, leading Americans in prayer and calling the nation back to God. He has since traveled to various states and regions across the country, proclaiming the hope of the Gospel in multi-city tours.

On Dec. 7-8, Franklin Graham will conclude 2019 with the Love Phnom Penh Festival in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. To see more stories and photos from each city of Graham’s Tar Heel State Tour, visit
