LITTLE ROCK – Dozens of churches from across Arkansas were present Tuesday, Feb. 26 at Immanuel Baptist Church, Little Rock, in support of the My Hope with Billy Graham event.
Fifty-six individuals signed up.
Jonathan Gray, regional coordinator for Arkansas, said the project is a nationwide, multidenominational evangelistic effort that will be “the greatest evangelical outreach of our lifetime” by focusing on sharing Christ relationally.
Gray said the event is designed to be a “crusade in your living room.”
My Hope is planned for launch in November in conjunction with Graham’s 95th birthday.
“We are currently training pastors all over the country ... (for) this historic effort to reach friends, neighbors, co-workers, students and loved ones for Jesus Christ in Arkansas and nationwide,” said Gray.
Jim Wood, My Hope director of mobilization, led the first session of the training event. Churches attending received My Hope materials, including suggestions for in-home events during November.
