According to John Cass, BGEA’s Director of Internet Evangelism:

Overall, more than 20,000 people each day are viewing a presentation of the Gospel via BGEA’s online evangelism platform. For decades we have worked to fill venues with people so Billy, Franklin or Will Graham can proclaim the Gospel. The way we look at it, this is similar to welcoming a full arena to hear the message on a daily basis. The difference is that our audience may be in Russia, or Saudi Arabia, or other places where we may not normally be able to go.

The article goes on to report in October 2014 alone, 45,000 people in Iraq, 34,000 in Syria and 33,000 in Saudi Arabia experienced the Good News of Jesus Christ through PeaceWithGod.net.

Amazing!

Kudos to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association for having the vision for this and putting the resources towards it. Praise God for providing the dramatic results!

There can be no doubt that God can and does great things through people online.

  • I'm inspired the vision, the plan, implementation and results. It's about getting the word out and in this case the Word and the Gospel in front of as many people as possible. I had no idea that Billy Graham was doing this. My hat is off to him for recognizing the power of the internet and more importantly using it to spread the gospel. Thanks Paul and God Bless.

    • Stephanie, thanks for the comment. Yeah, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has consistently focused a lot of time and resources towards using the Internet to tell people about Jesus for years. Great to see the results they are seeing!
