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 31 cities across Canada since first delivering the Good News in Barrie, ON, in 2004, and he is 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.”

Will Graham will be preaching at two Celebrations of Hope in Canada this fall; one in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut on Oct. 26-27 and one in St. John’s, Newfoundland on Nov. 2-4. Each Celebration will culminate with a multi-day evangelistic outreach and concert event, featuring Christian musicians and other artists, dynamic testimonies, and Gospel presentations by Will Graham, who will invite attendees to commit their lives to Christ.
