Knoxville Celebration with Will Graham
The Knoxville Celebration with Will Graham, grandson of the late Rev. Dr. Billy Graham, which was scheduled to be held Friday, May 1, at Knoxville Civic Auditorium and Coliseum, has been postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Graham asked the churches of Knoxville to share the love of Jesus during this unprecedented time. “I’m saddened that I will not be able to proclaim the hope of the Gospel in Knoxville this May. The city has been an integral part of my family and our ministry dating back to my grandfather’s historic 1970 Crusade and my father’s 2008 Festival,” Graham said. “With that said, the churches in Knoxville are strong and passionate, and I pray that they will pick up the mantle. Particularly in this time of despair, mistrust and fear, I ask the churches and believers in Knoxville to shine the light of Jesus in dark days.” John Cass, executive director of Will Graham Celebrations, added, “I ask for continued prayers for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, the churches of Knoxville, and all of those being impacted by this virus.”
