My Hope with Billy Graham is Your Hope to Reach Loved Ones
We encourage everyone trained in Evangelism Explosion to participate in My Hope with Billy Graham, a massive nationwide outreach in November to reach hundreds of thousands of people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The work of sharing the Gospel with our loved ones is urgent. The American Dream is limping badly. Here are the realities of a typical neighborhood community of 100:
- 7 struggle with depression, some consider suicide
- 14 feel trapped by fear and anxiety
- 7 abuse or are addicted to drugs and alcohol
- 3 are grieving the loss of a loved one
- 8 are struggling with job loss
- 60 are not saved
Share the Gospel through the My Hope outreach and give the joy that only Jesus can provide.
Look: Identify your friends, neighbors, co-workers, fellow students, and family who do not know Jesus Christ as their Savior. Write their names on a list.
Pray: Look up and pray every day for each person you have listed.
Invite: With your EE team, or on your own if you prefer, invite those on your list to your home for a meal or dessert—or gather them at your church or favorite hangout—to view the My Hope broadcast. Check your local listing for date and time at watchbillygraham.com. Dates and times will differ, and your area’s particular event will be broadcast on November 7 – 9.
Watch: View the nationwide TV broadcast on television or online featuring life-changing testimonies and powerful messages from Billy Graham.
Share: Next, briefly share how Jesus gave you hope and tell what He is doing in your life today.
Ask: Ask your friends if they would like to make the same decision you did to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and pray with them.
Follow up: Look after those who give their lives to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith.
This incredible event combines the impact of broadcast media with the power of personal relationships to impact lives for eternity with the Gospel.
