What to Expect
Since 1950, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has held Crusades all across the globe for one purpose: to proclaim God’s love to people who need Jesus Christ. Today, Celebrations with Will Graham continue this life-changing mission. A Celebration is not just an evangelistic event; it is a journey of prayer, training, outreach, and follow-up that takes place over many months.
The Greater Sudbury Celebration outreach weekend with Will Graham will take place in October 2021.
Benefits for Your Church
Here are seven ways a Celebration with Will Graham can benefit you and your church:
Prayer Without prayer, we could not survive as Christians nor would we ever hold a Celebration. Every aspect of the Celebration directs believers toward prayer—determined, heartfelt, ceaseless prayer.
Evangelism Training Many committed Christians have never shared their faith because they don’t know how or they are afraid. The Christian Life and Witness Course teaches Christians how to effectively and confidently present the Gospel. The classes also prepare believers to pray with people who come forward at the Celebration.
An Action Plan for Sharing your Faith Christians put their learning from the Christian Life and Witness Course into practice through an initiative called ‘Bring a Friend’. As Christians 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 the Celebration outreach weekend, where their friends and loved ones will hear the message of salvation.
Spiritual Renewal As Christians prepare for the Celebration outreach weekend, bring friends and family to the meetings, and worship with other believers, the Lord can bring renewal into individual lives and congregations.
Engagement for All Ages From children to seniors, there are many opportunities for all ages to participate in the Celebration journey. Learn how to share your faith, volunteer, join the prayer network; these are just a few ways to engage with a Celebration.
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 Celebration that unites churches in the community.
New Christians in Local Churches The Celebration journey is designed to bring new believers into churches where new relationships are formed and their spiritual growth is encouraged. New Christians add vitality to congregational life and worship.
About Celebrations with Will Graham
Celebrations with Will Graham is a ministry of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Our mission is to proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to all we can by every effective means available to us, and equipping others to do the same.
“Telling someone else the Good News of Jesus Christ is one of the greatest privileges I know, for when others hear and believe the Gospel, their lives are changed forever. It’s also one of our greatest responsibilities.” -Will Graham
Celebrations with Will Graham will culminate with a multi-day evangelistic outreach weekend. The Celebration will feature a children’s event, Christian musicians and other artists, dynamic video testimonies, and Gospel presentations by Will Graham, who will invite attendees to commit their lives to Christ.
Our heart’s desire at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada is to work with churches and the Christian community. We know the Celebration’s success hinges on prayer and the involvement of churches, children’s & youth ministries, Christian business representatives, and leaders with a passion to see people come to Christ and grow in their relationship with Him.

Who is Will Graham?
“I’m not trying to be the next Billy Graham; I’m just Will Graham. I have a burden in my heart to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If that’s to an arena full of people or one person on the street, I will do whatever God is calling me to do.” -Will Graham
William Franklin Graham IV (Will) is an ordained minister. Will is the grandson of Billy Graham and the oldest son of Franklin Graham, and he is the third generation of Grahams to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ under the banner of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA).
The first of Will’s crusade-style events – called Celebrations – took place in 2006 in Leduc, Alberta, Canada. Since then, he has held evangelistic outreaches on six continents around the world. Last year, he held Celebrations in Belleville, Ontario and Baker Lake, Nunavut.
