Canadians today know less about Jesus than at any other time in Canadian history. Yet, research reveals many people are very interested in spirituality.

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada wants to offer Greater Vancouver Area residents something that will satisfy their deepest longings—a relationship with Jesus Christ.

The Festival of Hope is a multi-phase initiative spread over several months that includes prayer, training, Community Action Projects, and many opportunities for evangelism.

The ministry culminates with a three-day festival from March 3 to 5, 2017 at the Rogers Arena. Intended to draw thousands of people to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ, each evening will feature Christian musicians, testimonies, and the Gospel message from Franklin Graham. This is a non-ticketed event with free admission.

    Church, this is your time to take a stand against hatred and bigotry. What a divisive, bizarre choice to preach the gospel in Vancouver. Franklin Graham has shown time and time again what his true colours are – not of love, but of prejudice against Muslims, against refugees and blind support of Donald Trump. He even used racism against Japanese during WWII to justify banning Muslims. As an Asian, that offends and alarms me. How far the Evangelicals of today have wandered from the message of love and compassion of Jesus Christ. I ask that you stop promoting this event.

      I SO agree with you Eric. I was horrified to see that Franklin Graham is to be the primary speaker at this event. Christians need to stand up for the new law that Jesus represents . . . loving God and loving our neighbours of every color, creed and composition!

      I will be attending this event . . . as a protester!

      Dear brother in Jesus Christ, I would suggest that you should focus on Jesus and not Franklin. Jesus Christ is the head of the church and not Franklin. Festival of Hope is organized to bring hope to the lost brothers and sisters in Vancouver and it is done in the name of the Lord. Please let the Lord Jesus Christ touch the hearts of the lost brothers and sisters who will come to this Festival of Hope.

      Lord Jesus Christ, who is our only hope wants us to forgive one another and maintain unity in the body of Christ. I write this with love.

        Thank you, Lorna.

        Whoever it is that ends up sharing the Gospel, may the Holy Spirit dwell in them and speak truth in love.

        Let us pray, and also share the Gospel ourselves! We don’t need a big name speaker to share the wonder of how Jesus has changed our lives. To Him be the glory!

          Have you noticed what an ever polarized society we are living in? Have you noticed how many families are affected by evils of drugs, alcohol, immoralities? Do you honestly think we are heading towards a right direction in this country, down south, all over the world? What a hopeless situation when we are relying on humans, politicians, secular religious leaders to bring peace, hope and direction to us.

          Do yourself a favour – go to the Festival of Hope, and listen to the word. It doesn’t matter who speaks it, know that God loves you and he is using Franklin Graham to bring hope to Vancouver.

      You need to get over yourself and repent. If you don’t want to hear the truth, fine, BUT LEAVE YOUR BIGOTED AND HATEFUL THOUGHTS TO YOURSELF. I pray you come to your senses and see your nakedness and folly. Shame on you for trying to deny humanity the TRUTH!

        Dear Nancy,
        I am surprised you used the word “Truth” in your reply. Please read your bible and think about what you’ve read. What is your criteria for deciding what factually true?

        Simply desiring something to be true doesn’t make it true. Isn’t there more to “truth?”

      It is God’s Word that offends you, not FG; too bad for you.

    Jesus is the source and direction of our lives. Feeding our thoughts by meditating on His words regularly is a way to align our lives to Him. Authentic Peace and Joy is the only the source.
