Trinity Broadcasting Network to Broadcast Evangelist Billy Graham's 96th Birthday Message About Heaven, Friday November 7th

LOS ANGELES (November 3, 2014) — America's beloved evangelist Billy Graham has an important new message on heaven, eternal life, and God's love that, more than ever, the world needs to hear! On Friday November 7th, global Christian television leader Trinity Broadcasting Network will air that poignant and timely, 30-minute video — entitled simply Heaven — while pausing with Dr. Graham's family and many friends to wish him a happy 96th birthday.


For over six decades Dr. Graham's message of hope and healing has filled stadiums and major venues all over the earth, and his warm, assuring voice has reached out to billions of individuals and families on every continent through radio and television. Last year the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association launched My Hope With Billy Graham, an historic partnership with individuals, churches, and ministries like TBN to reach out to neighbors, communities, and the nation with the simple message of salvation through Jesus Christ.


This year the ministry is following up with the video Heaven, which features compelling, real-life stories of individuals who faced eternity and its implications, along with never-before seen footage, filmed last year, of Billy Graham talking about the hope of heaven.


“Everyone knows that this life is temporary, that we're only here for a short time,” said TBN Vice President Matthew Crouch. “But what happens when we die? This powerful program with a special message from Billy Graham, one of America's most trusted Christian leaders, offers the hope and the answer so many individuals are looking for in these uncertain and troubled times.”


In addition to the thirty-minute Heaven program, TBN will host a two-hour special honoring Billy Graham on his 96th birthday, featuring a look back at Dr. Graham's life and ministry, along with special birthday wishes from his family and friends.


“Billy Graham has been a dear friend and partner of this network for nearly forty years,” said Mr. Crouch. “We've covered several of his historic gospel campaigns, and his Billy Graham Classics is one of the most popular and requested programs on TBN. It's a privilege to honor him on another milestone birthday, and to partner with him in this special My Hope With Billy Graham outreach.


Tune in to the Trinity Broadcasting Network Friday, November 7th, at 5 p.m. Pacific (7 p.m. Central, 8 p.m. Eastern) for My Hope With Billy Graham: Heaven, followed at 7 p.m. Pacific (9 p.m. Central, 10 p.m. Eastern) for the Billy Graham 96th Birthday Special.
