2018 Celebrations in Canada

Celebrations of Hope with Will Graham have one purpose—to proclaim God’s love to people who need Jesus Christ.

Will Graham has spoken in 33 cities across Canada since first delivering the Good News in Barrie, ON, in 2004, and he is always excited to return to the country where he began his work as an evangelist.

“In my many visits to Canada, I have seen much of this vast, diverse, and beautiful country,” Will said. “Regardless of where I have traveled, though, the warmth of Canadians is the same.”

In 2018, Will Graham preached at two Canadian Celebrations of Hope; one in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut on Oct. 26-27 and one in St. John’s, Newfoundland on Nov. 2-4.
