The Cross

The Cross

 

In 1945, Youth For Christ embraced and then propelled a 27-year-old by the name of Billy Graham to the ministry spotlight as the message of Christ and His promise of transformation reached the ears of receptive young people across the United States. In auditoriums throughout the country and in cities from coast to coast, the message of Jesus was clearly proclaimed.

Throughout the early ministry years that Billy Graham spent with Youth For Christ, there was a consistent call to biblically-based communication, unapologetic confrontation of sin, and a leadership model that assembled a valuable and committed ministry team. It was in this spirit of collaboration, accountability, missional passion, and biblical fidelity that Youth For Christ was birthed, nurtured and sustained. By God’s grace this remains true over sixty-five years later.

"The Cross" is a special message from Billy Graham that aired on his 95th birthday, Nov. 7, 2013. This 30 minute short film features stories from rapper Lecrae and singer Lacey Sturm
