Graham’s funeral was his ‘last crusade’

Following the death of Billy Graham on Feb. 21, ministry partners showcased the gospel in tributes and messages broadcast to millions around the world, resulting in reports of thousands of salvation decisions.

More than 1.3 million visited in the past two months, according to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA).

The online memorial features historic videos of Graham preaching, information about his life and a replay of Graham’s funeral service, which many have called his “last crusade.” It also includes a link to, a website that outlines the steps by which one can pray and accept Jesus as their Savior.

The site had more than 118,000 visitors from 228 countries and territories in the first month after Graham’s death, and 11,135 indicated they prayed to either profess faith for the first time or to renew their lapsed faith, according to BGEA.

A SiriusXM channel dedicated to Graham’s preaching that aired through April 3 also was fruitful, with 126 indicating decisions for Christ.

BGEA began hearing reports of decisions for Christ made by listeners less than a week after Graham’s death. (TAB)
