Profile of Rev. Will Graham
William Franklin (Will) Graham IV is the Assistant Director of the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove and Associate Evangelist of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
William Franklin Graham IV (Will) is the third generation of Grahams to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ under the banner of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). Will is the grandson of Billy Graham and the oldest son of Franklin Graham.
Since beginning his evangelistic ministry with youth-oriented, one-day events in Canada, Will has spoken to audiences across six continents. In 2011, Will held multi-day outreaches in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Philippines and Kenya.
Will's first crusade-style event – which he calls Celebrations – took place in 2006 in Leduc, Canada. His first Celebration on U.S. soil came later that year in Gastonia, N.C. Since then, he has also held evangelistic outreaches in several states and provinces.
“I'm not trying to be the next Billy Graham; I'm just Will Graham,” says the ordained minister. “I have a burden in my heart to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If that's to an arena full of people or one person on the street, I will do whatever God is calling me to do.”
Will also serves BGEA as assistant director of the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove in Asheville, N.C. The Cove offers multi-day seminars on a variety of Christian subjects and features nationally-recognized speakers.
Will graduated from Liberty University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Religion and in 2001 graduated from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree.
Will and his wife, Kendra, have two daughters, Christine Jane (CJ) and Rachel Austin, and a son, William Franklin Graham V (Quinn).
