The Red River Will Graham Celebration will be held at Gainesville High School in Gainesville, Texas, on March 16-18, and the Trinity Valley Will Graham Celebration will take place the following weekend, March 23-25, in Terrell, Texas, at the Terrell ISD Performing Arts Center.

“It will be an exciting time to bring churches and civic groups together as a unified body to bring about spiritual renewal in our community,” said Johnny Leftwich, who will serve as the chairman of the Celebration General Committee for the Red River Will Graham Celebration. “I believe you will see a unity of our churches and community from combining their efforts resulting in changed lives for the glory of the Lord.”

His enthusiasm was echoed by his counterpart in Terrell. Dena Risinger, chairwoman of the Celebration General Committee for the Trinity Valley Will Graham Celebration, said, “I can see God’s hand at work every step of the way, and I cannot wait to see what He has in store during the journey and at the destination point.”

All Celebration programs will be free and open to the public, and will feature music from top Christian artists like The Afters and Rend Collective Experiment, and challenging and inspiring messages from Graham.

The Red River and Trinity Valley Will Graham Celebrations will mark a return to the Dallas area nearly four years after Graham held a multi-day outreach in Burleson, Texas, south of Fort Worth. More than 16,000 attended the Greater Johnson County Will Graham Celebration at Burleson High School in May 2008.

Graham’s most recent U.S. Celebration took place in Ocean Grove, N.J. in May 2011, with 13,871 attending the three-day Jersey Shore Will Graham Celebration.

    It's so delightful and inspiring to see the sons and daughters of Billy Graham continuing the ministry of reaching the world with the Good News. This family has had such an influence on society. We need more like this.
