My Hope with Billy Graham is a grass roots outreach to reach people across Canada and the United States with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Following a simple biblical model, My Hope with Billy Graham combines the reach and excitement of a continent-wide media event with the power of personal relationships. Under the guidance of their local pastors, Christians across these two countries will open their homes to share the Gospel message with friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors using different media programs featuring Billy Graham, dynamic music, and testimonies.
Matthew and Friends is the heart of this national evangelistic outreach. After accepting Jesus’ call to follow Him (Matthew 9:9–13 and Luke 5:27–31), Matthew invited friends into his house to meet the Person who changed his life. Like the Apostle Matthew, Christians in Canada will invite their guests into their homes to learn about Jesus using prime-time television, while others will gather at a coffee shop or the park to watch the program on a tablet or smartphone.
Being a Matthew is simply friends sharing Jesus with friends. It’s simple:
Invite your friends and neighbors who don’t know Jesus Christ to your home for a meal and dessert.
Watch new evangelistic programs featuring life-changing testimonies, and powerful messages from Billy Graham.
Next, briefly share how Jesus gave you hope and tell what He is doing in your life today.
Ask your friends if they would like to make the same decision you did to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and pray with them.
