from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
Feb. 21, 2022, marked the four-year anniversary of Billy Graham’s passing. The farm boy from Charlotte who counseled presidents and lovingly became known as “America’s Pastor” shared the Gospel with an estimated 215 million people in 185 countries and territories throughout his eight decades of ministry.
“In many ways, it’s hard to believe that my father has been gone four years. We all miss him greatly, but I know that I’ll see him again someday in heaven,” said Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). “The message that my father dedicated his life to sharing is the same message we continue to proclaim around the world through BGEA—that God loves us and we can have a relationship with Him by turning from our sins and putting our faith and trust in Jesus Christ.”
A BGEA television special titled Billy Graham: “Are You Ready to Die?” was released in honor of the anniversary. The program shares Mr. Graham’s final message. To see the video, visit
