Billy Graham’s Lausanne Legacy
Lausanne Movement | global executive director
A few weeks ago the world said goodbye to Billy Graham. It was an unforgettable experience to be there for his funeral—a moving time of worship, celebration of the gospel, and friendship, all of which truly reflected Billy’s heart and lifelong ministry.
As the world continues to remember and celebrate the life and legacy of Billy Graham, I want to share this special video with you reflecting on his legacy at Lausanne 1974 and beyond. We are admonished to ‘Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.’ (Hebrews 13:7)
A number of substantial tributes from Lausanne leaders who interacted with Billy over the years are also now available on the website. If you have a moment, look over the tributes posted in the comments sections of our press release as well as the tribute blog post, and feel free to add your own.
During this season where we especially seek to ‘remember [our] leaders’, we would also like to announce a new page on our website dedicated to Billy Graham and John Stott. These two men honored God with their whole lives, and even after death, their legacies continue to be used by the Lord for the evangelization of the world. May we indeed ‘consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith’, for the glory of the Lord.
