NCGOP Honors Billy Graham

Spread the love
Rev. Billy Graham

Raleigh, NC — Christian evangelical Billy Graham, a native of Charlotte, North Carolina, passed away earlier this week. He was one of the most influential preachers of the twentieth century, known especially for providing spiritual counsel to every president from Harry Truman to Barack Obama. NCGOP released the statement honoring Dr. Graham:

“With the passing of Billy Graham, North Carolina lost not only her favorite son, we also lost the ultimate example of servant leadership, humility, and Christ-like life. As tributes and memories have filled the news stories with examples of an incredible ministry, we should ask ourselves how each of us can help fill the vacuum created by his loss. There were four tenets that Dr. Graham and his team lived by– honesty, integrity, accountability, and moral purity. If we adopt these principles, apply them to our treatment of others, and accept Christ as Dr. Graham always proposed, we will live out what he called us to do and be. As Dr. Graham said, ‘a Christian is one in whom Christ dwells.’ Well done, Billy Graham, thy good and faithful servant.” – NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes
