Franklin Graham has devoted his life to meeting the needs of people around the world and proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The eldest son of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham, he serves as President and CEO of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Under his leadership, Samaritan's Purse has met the needs of poor, sick, and suffering people in more than 100 countries. As an evangelist for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, he has led crusades around the world.

Franklin conducted his first evangelistic event in 1989 and now conducts Crusades, called Festivals, around the world for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. He has proclaimed the Gospel message at 190 evangelistic events in 50 states and U.S. territories, and 49 countries since 1989.

In 2016, Franklin Graham launched the Decision America Tour which called people to pray and to engage in local civic opportunities in each of the 50 U.S. capitals, subsequently resulting in numerous regionally focused tours. In 2019, Franklin will continue the Decision tour with events in 7 cities across the Northeast.
