Billy Graham has passed away at the age of 99. He was a key partner and supporter of the Evangelical Alliance during the crusades in the 1950s. We are grateful to God for the life of His faithful servant, and for the role that Billy Graham played in the history and life of the Alliance. 

Steve Clifford, general director of the Alliance, says:

"History will recall that Billy Graham was one of the most influential men of his generation. I was profoundly influenced by his life and ministry from afar. Beside a lake, in large auditoriums and through broadcasts, or watching him on TV – one could not help but be impacted by his passion for God, his commitment to the truth of the gospel and his life of integrity lived in the spotlight of a media-mad world. The ministry of Billy Graham in the UK and the Evangelical Alliance have been uniquely intertwined in the second half of the 20th century, since the events at Harringay arena in 1954. I am sure that his legacy will live on."
