In 1946 Billy Graham came to the Great Auditorium in Ocean Grove and invited the people of the Jersey Shore to come and take the water of life as a free gift. From that time onward, Billy Graham presented the gospel to millions of people throughout the world and millions have come to the Lord Jesus Christ.

From Friday, May 20 – Sunday, May 22, 2011, Billy Graham’s grandson Will Graham will present the message of Jesus Christ to the people of Jersey Shore. Hundreds of churches are participating and the invitation is extended to you to come and take the gift of the water of life.

Our church is providing bus transportation for each of the three evening events.
