Franklin Graham Announces Route 66 God Loves You Tour

from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s June 4th Newsletter


Franklin Graham has announced the dates and cities for the Route 66 God Loves You Tour—an eight-city evangelistic tour that begins Sept. 19 in Joliet, Illinois, and travels along historic Route 66.

“There are a lot of people out there who are afraid,” explained Graham. “Businesses have failed. People have lost their jobs. A lot of people have just been sick, loved ones have been lost. And I think as a result of that, there’s a question in people’s mind: ‘Does God love me?’”

The Route 66 God Loves You Tour will include stops in: Joliet, Illinois (Sept. 19); St. Louis, Missouri (Sept. 21); Springfield, Missouri (Sept. 23); Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (Sept. 25); Amarillo, Texas (Sept. 26), Albuquerque, New Mexico (Sept. 28); Flagstaff, Arizona (Sept. 30); and San Bernardino, California (Oct. 2).

Before the tour, each community will hold prayer gatherings and offer evangelistic training, including the Christian Life and Witness Course. This three-session class from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association helps believers deepen their faith and learn practical ways to share it with others.
