William Franklin Graham IV (Will) is the third generation of Grahams to proclaim the Gospel under the banner of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The grandson of Billy Graham and the oldest son of Franklin Graham, Will has shared the hope of Jesus with more than 1 million people across six continents since beginning his evangelistic ministry in 2006.

“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 has taken the Great Commission (Mark 16:15) to heart, going into the whole world to proclaim the Good News of the Gospel to all who may hear. His travels have taken him to the cities of India, the islands of the Philippines, the villages of Kenya, and into former Communist countries like Romania and Albania. For more than 15 years, Will has made regular trips to Australia, meeting with Christian leaders and proclaiming the hope of Christ across the continent, including the communities of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Broken Hill, Alice Springs, Hobart, Launceston, and many others.

Over the course of more than 80 evangelistic outreaches in the United States and around the world, over 100,000 people have responded to begin a relationship with Jesus.

In addition to his evangelistic outreaches, Will serves as executive vice president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, giving leadership to all aspects of the organisation that his grandfather founded in 1950.

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).


All around us are people who are struggling through life, searching for hope, peace and purpose. They are taking their last breaths without the promise of heaven. We must do all we can to share the Good News of the Gospel while there is still time.

A Look Up Celebration with Will Graham journey is a partnership between the churches of your community and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, as we jointly and boldly proclaim the hope of Christ through free, family-friendly outreaches. Our two-fold aim is for the Church to be strengthened and the Gospel to be proclaimed.

  • The Look Up Celebration mobilizes the Christian community to action, prayer and unity through a concerted community and region-wide effort.
  • Equips believers with evangelism training and an action plan for sharing their faith.
  • Assembles as many people as possible to hear the Gospel message.
  • Offers an opportunity for inquirers to respond to the Gospel and grow in their new-found faith.
  • Brings spiritual renewal in a community as the church is energized and grown.

Seek God’s guidance for your family, your church, and your community.


Unity is an important part of the entire process. Connect with other local churches and build a praying coalition of Christians who are ready to reach your city with the Gospel.
