Montreat Conference Center Remembers Rev. Billy Graham

Posted on

We are deeply grateful for the Reverend Billy Graham and his life in ministry, which stands as a testament to the power of Christ, evangelized honestly and authentically by a man so gifted for that purpose.

To millions, Reverend Graham was the world’s most famous and influential Christian leader. Montreat, however, was home; he and wife Ruth chose this valley to raise their family and to rest and retreat from the rigors of their very public lives. Here in the valley, on those occasions that he ventured into town, Reverend Graham’s reputation as a neighbor of humility and warmth had long preceded him.

We join so many in mourning the loss of this wise and humble servant, and we give special thanks for Reverend Graham’s presence in Montreat. We offer our prayers especially today to his friends and family.
