Benefits for Your Church

There are six ways a Will Graham Celebration can benefit you and your church.

What You Need to Know

 

What is a Celebration?

Since 1950, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has held Crusades all across the globe for one purpse: to proclaim God's love to people who need Jesus Christ. Today, Will Graham Celebrations continue this life-changing mission.

A Celebration is not just an evangelistic event; it is a process of prayer, training, outreach, and follow-up that takes place over a 12-month period - and it begins and ends with the local church.

Benefits for Your Church

Here are six ways a Celebration can benefit you and your church:

Prayer Without prayer, we could not survive as Christians nor would we ever hold a Celebration. Every aspect of the Celebration directs believers toward prayer—determined, heartfelt, ceaseless prayer.

Evangelism Training Many committed Christians have never shared their faith because they don’t know how or they are afraid. The Christian Life and Witness classes teach Christians how to effectively and confidently present the Gospel. The classes also prepare believers to pray with people who come forward at the Celebration.

An Action Plan for Witnessing Christians put their learning into practice through Bring a Friend. After participants identify family and friends who need to know Jesus Christ, they commit to pray for and build relationships with them—leading up to an invitation to the Celebration, where their friends and loved ones will hear the message of salvation.

Spiritual Renewal As Christians prepare for the Celebration, bring friends and family to the meetings, and worship with other believers, the Lord can bring renewal into individual lives and congregations.

Christian Unity The church is never stronger than when it is united with one common goal, to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Lasting relationships and bonds are formed in the development of the Celebration that unite churches in the community.

New Christians in Local Churches The Celebration process is designed to bring new believers into churches where their spiritual growth is encouraged. New Christians add vitality to congregational life and worship.
