It’s been a little more than a year since the passing of the venerable evangelist Rev. William J. Graham Jr. With a steadfast consistency in his faith and message, Billy Graham’s impact during his 66 years of ministry was enormous. Graham’s reach and influence for the sake of the gospel was nothing short of astonishing. Graham reached nearly 215 million people in more than 185 countries, plus countless more through radio, books and other media. Endearingly referred to as “America’s pastor”, Graham had the opportunity to meet, counsel and pray with 12 U.S. Presidents. His enduring faith in Christ leads Graham to be one of the most influential people of the 20th century.
One of the more unique places his influence brought him was to a TED conference in 1998 to present on technology and faith. While his message is a simple one, it is one that even more than 20 years later is still very relevant.
