The Baptist State Convention of North Carolina has passed a resolution honoring the late Rev. Billy Graham in advance of what would have been the famed evangelist’s 100th birthday.
At their annual meeting in Greensboro on Monday, the messengers at the convention adopted the “Resolution in Appreciation for the Life of Billy Graham.”
“That the messengers to the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina meeting in Greensboro, North Carolina, November 5-6, 2018, grieve the passing of Billy Graham on February 21, 2018, while also celebrating, honoring, and commemorating his life and ministry as a beloved Southern Baptist who traveled the world sharing the good news of Jesus Christ,” read the resolution in part.
“… we desire to celebrate Billy Graham’s legacy by committing ourselves to sharing the gospel, living lives of personal holiness, and finding joy through an eternal peace with God accomplished by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
Once adopted, BSCNC Executive Director Treasurer Milton A. Hollifield Jr. presented Graham’s former executive assistant David Bruce with a plaque engraved with the resolution text.
A native of Charlotte, North Carolina, Graham was raised on a dairy farm. He later graduated from Wheaton College in Illinois, now the home of the Billy Graham Center Museum.
