Many people know Billy Graham has spent a lifetime spreading the Good News around the globe, through Crusades, radio, TV and Internet ministries.
But right by his side for 60-plus years, Cliff Barrows has quietly had the unique opportunity to witness millions of people come forward to make life-changing decisions for Christ.
“He has been able to see from the front row the lives that have been changed eternally around the globe,” said Jim Kirkland, director of radio at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
And now, you can experience some of the rich history of the Billy Graham Crusades by tuning into the new Hour of Decision Online program, an Internet-exclusive broadcasting program released every Sunday at HourofDecisionOnline.org.
The program will feature the timeless Gospel message from Billy Graham, as well as first-hand recollections and music from Crusades, ranging from choirs to George Beverly Shea to special musical guests.
“Anybody now with access to the Internet can take a seat next to Cliff and hear these amazing stories of God’s work,” Kirkland said. “Cliff’s unique offering is one of over 60 years of perspective that he alone possesses as music director and emcee for Mr. Graham’s Crusades.”
Also beginning this month, Barrows’ long-running Hour of Decision radio program—which he’s hosted since 1950—has changed to Peace with God, featuring timeless Gospel messages from Billy Graham, Franklin Graham and Will Graham. But Cliff Barrows is excited about the new digital program. “I’m grateful that we have the privilege of beginning another dimension of our radio ministry online,” said Barrows.
Launched on May 4, the premiere Hour of Decision Online program was heard in its first few days by listeners in 17 different countries, including South Africa, India, Australia and the UK—all countries Mr. Graham has preached live.
“The wonderful thing about it is we are going to have music on the program – which has been so important to our ministry since the beginning,” Barrows said. “And you can listen morning, noon and night.”
