Ocean Grove, N.J. – Will Graham preached about God's purpose in life to thousands of youth Saturday at the Great Auditorium, reaching a new generation with the same Christ-filled message his grandfather Billy Graham is known for.
Standing on the same stage that his legendary grandfather spoke from over half a century ago at the same age, the 36-year-old evangelist challenged a crowd of 5,500, comprised of mainly students, to not live a life defined by a job title but by a God-given purpose.
"What's the purpose? You were created for a relationship. God created you in order to have a relationship just with you," said Graham on Saturday, the second day of the Jersey Shore Will Graham Celebration Event in Ocean Grove, N.J. more >>
Ocean Grove, N.J. – Will Graham, the grandson of Billy Graham and oldest son of Franklin Graham, responded Saturday to Harold Camping's failed doomsday date.
Half an hour after 6:00 p.m. – the time of the predicted rapture – Graham was standing backstage at the Great Auditorium in Ocean Grove, N.J., chatting with reporters and getting ready to preach before thousands attending the second day of the Jersey Shore Will Graham Celebration.
"Harold couldn't be more right. The end of the world is coming," Graham told The Christian Post. "We just don't know the time of it. From his calculations, he was off. I don't think there is any man on earth who can ever really calculate to any degree when the return of Christ is going to be." more >>

The Dallas megachurch pastor, who has been gaining attention for his movie "Jumping the Broom," told Roland Martin of Washington Watch on Sunday, "I find it insulting.
