What Others Say

Learn what Christian leaders have to say about the Billy Graham Center.


Since its founding in 1980, the Graham Center has been a focus of encouraging and motivating Christian leaders in Great Commission emphasis throughout the world. The commitment of the Center to the priority of evangelism through strategic and timely programming has lifted the vision and sharpened the skills of countless individuals and organizations as they seek to reach a new generation for Christ. In a world that is increasingly torn by doubt, confusion, and despair, I believe the Center’s ministry is now more urgent than ever. I urge your prayerful and financial support to make this outreach possible through the vision and ministry of the Graham Center.

- Rev. Billy Graham (February 2012)

The Billy Graham Center is a critical nexus for global evangelization . . . As they seek to fulfill the Great Commission, world leaders find coordination and inspiration in the Center’s archives, conferences, training programs, publications, and direct presentations of the gospel.

To remain faithful and effective in our mission, the church needs input and information that will help in our praying, planning, and acting. The Billy Graham Center is one of the most strategic centers in the world to provide this kind of communication. I wholeheartedly endorse the value of the Billy Graham Center . . . If it did not exist, it would need to be invented!

There are many things that I admire about The Billy Graham Center for World Evangelism…but the most impressive aspect is its uncompromised passion to reach the lost through every means possible to every corner of the world.

In an era of decentralization and global change we need a stable center point for evangelism. The Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College is that center . . . Evangelicals across America and around the world look to the Billy Graham Center to understand the past and to serve the future.

The Billy Graham Center has the unique ability to be both a thought-leader for being increasingly effective in evangelism in difficult contexts, and a coalition-builder among those who share a burden to extend the love of God. Allison and the team are people of character, competence, and conviction. Their leadership means the Billy Graham Center stands at the center of the conversation for all who care deeply about the call to "go, and make disciples."
