Will Graham
Will Graham shared the Gospel with more than 1,100 people in Fort Wayne Saturday night and some 11,000 online. He assured them, "God will forgive you of your sin. The One who gives you life [and] fulfillment. This is a decision you'll have to make."
Saturday was night two of The Greater Fort Wayne Celebration with Will Graham. Located in northeastern Indiana, Fort Wayne is the state's second largest city.
Journey of Faith play at KidzFest
At KidzFest, children and their parents are treated to The Greatest Journey, a play featuring local actors telling the story of what it means to follow Christ. The event also includes fun and worshipful songs from a KidzChoir.
The Afters on stage
Students especially loved The Afters’ energy and passionate worship. The Dove Award-winning band has performed at several Will Graham events, always engaging the crowd and taking time to share a quick Gospel-centered message.

Bouncy houses at KidzFest
KidzFest is always a hit with children and parents alike at Will Graham Celebrations. Little ones find joy in jumping and going down slides in the bouncy houses, getting their face painted and taking home a quirky balloon.
Jimi Cravity with arms raised
Worship artist Jimi Cravity’s wide-ranging style fuses elements of rock, R&B, pop and hip-hop. In 2017, he released his follow-up EP titled “Heaven,” reaching number 15 on Billboard’s Christian chart. Jimi also performs Sunday at the Celebration.

More than 100 people made decisions for Christ at Saturday's Celebration with another 280 responses to the invitation earlier in the day at KidzFest.
The Celebration is being held at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne. Further south in Indianapolis, drivers compete in the Indy 500 in hopes of taking the checkered flag. Are you going round and round in your life—but with no purpose? Find meaning in life and hope for the future.
