Youth Leaders Prepare for Greater New York Crusade

After nearly 50 years since his first crusade in New York, evangelist Billy Graham is getting ready to reach the people on the eastern coast of the U.S. in June 2005.

With less than five months left before the Greater New York Crusade, church leaders and other volunteers have begun preparations to gather a large crowd before Graham and the message of the gospel.

The 2005 Billy Graham Greater New York Crusade Youth Committee is inviting youth leaders to join a monthly meeting hosted by the Coalition of Urban Youth Workers. The upcoming meeting, scheduled for Feb. 14, will be held at the American Bible Society (61 St and Broadway).

Youth workers are also encouraged to attend a breakfast on Feb. 26 at the Roosevelt Hotel for those who plan to aid in the summer crusade. Both gatherings will begin at 10 a.m.
