About Will Graham

Will Graham is the third generation of Grahams to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ under the banner of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). As such, he’s following in his family’s footsteps by reaching into Native American communities with the hope of the Gospel.

“In 1975, at the Conference on Indian Evangelism in Albuquerque, my grandfather, Billy Graham, said, ‘You as Indians are a sleeping giant… You are now awakening. The original Americans could turn around and be the evangelists to win other Americans to Christ,’” said Will, sharing his heart for ministry.

“I believe this will happen in my lifetime, and I have a burden to reach the First Nations people with the Gospel,” Will continued. “I have a vision to go to every reservation and proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ as an organization; to preach to the first people that lived here; to make sure the Gospel has been heard.”

Will has shared the Gospel with more than one million people across six continents since beginning his evangelistic ministry in 2006.

“This world is a broken place,” Will said recently. “People are hurting, dealing with addictions, family issues, job and financial issues, or depression. So many are hopeless. I desperately want people to know that there is hope, and it’s found in Christ.”

Will’s good-natured rural roots and sense of humor are quickly evident, whether he’s behind the pulpit or visiting on the street. He enjoys being outdoors, riding motorcycles, working on cars, and telling stories. Will and his wife, Kendra, have two daughters, CJ and Rachel, and a son, Quinn, and live in the mountains of North Carolina.

What to Expect

The Native Peoples Tour will feature one-day events on reservations, highlighted by fun activities for children, concerts by award-winning musical artists, and messages of hope by evangelist Will Graham. The events are free, family friendly, and open to everybody.

Benefits for Your Church

Here are six ways the Native Peoples Tour can benefit you and your church:

Prayer Without prayer, we could not survive as Christians nor would we ever hold an outreach like the Native Peoples Tour. Every aspect of this event directs believers toward prayer—determined, heartfelt, ceaseless prayer.

Evangelism Training There are many committed Christians on the reservations, but most have never shared their faith. 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 event in July.

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 bring their friends to the Tour event, where their friends and loved ones will hear the message of salvation.

Spiritual Renewal As Christians prepare for the Native Peoples Tour, 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 Native Peoples Tour that unite churches in the community.

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