Billy Graham Remembered By His Alma Mater
Southern Baptist minister Billy Graham died at the age of 99 today. He was well known for the scope of his ministries, as well as providing spiritual counsel to several U.S. Presidents. His alma mater, Wheaton College, opened the Billy Graham Center in 1981. Executive Director Dr. Ed Stetzer says Graham will be difficult to match theologically.
“I don’t think Billy Graham has a theological successor. He was a man of his time. I think Billy Graham’s legacy would be millions upon millions of men and women who are sharing Christ as he did. But I just don’t think we’re at the time when there’s one person or persons who succeeds Billy Graham."
The center is putting together plans to honor Reverend Graham but hasn’t yet made them public.
