The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has released an online audio collection of more than 1,650 messages spanning nearly 60 years of Billy Graham’s active ministry. The new resource – the culmination of a year-long effort of the BGEA Radio Department – allows users to search Mr. Graham’s messages by topic, location or year at BillyGraham.org/AudioArchives. The messages can then be streamed for playback on computers and mobile devices.
“This is a tremendous asset for people who want to be inspired, who are lost, who are looking for answers, who want to rededicate their lives to Christ, or who need reassurance of their salvation,” explained Ken Barun, Senior Vice President of Communications for BGEA.
“It’s a blessing for people to be able to listen to these simple, straightforward and timeless messages.”
From the start of his ministry, Billy Graham was known as a trailblazer in finding innovative ways to present the Gospel. Whether through radio, television, or at standing room-only stadium events around the world, he preached about God’s love for all mankind and the redemptive power of a relationship with Jesus Christ. Now, those same messages can be accessed anywhere there’s an Internet connection.
“The availability to listen to Mr. Graham’s messages 24 hours a day, seven days a week is amazing. These messages span from the first Crusade in 1949 through as recent as 2005,” said Barun. “We are thrilled to have people listen to these messages.”
Jim Kirkland, BGEA Director of Radio, echoes Barun’s sentiments. “It’s amazing to ponder the magnitude of inspiration and research available through the audio archives,” Kirkland said. “At the expense of just a couple of key strokes lies six decades of ministry with over 1,600 messages pointing to Christ as the answer to man’s needs.
“It wasn’t even imagined when the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association first began that, one day, the whole world could access the whole body of Billy Graham’s teaching. We’re humbled to be a witness to the arrival of that day.”
