This was a historical moment. For the first time Billy Graham Evangelistic Association during their entire history has joined two separate events together into one to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the bigger number of people.

This amazing event took place in Warsaw, Poland on the 14 and 15 of June 2014.

Artur Pawlowski the organizer of the Nationwide March for Jesus in Poland led thousands of people to the stadium where Franklin Graham shared the gospel and asked the crowd, “Will you accept His love?”

The two-night event ended with thousands of responses to the invitation to accept Christ. More than 30,000 people heard the Gospel preached by Franklin Graham at Pepsi Arena. And even more outside of Warsaw watched the event online thanks to BGEA live streaming the event at BillyGraham.org/Live.

Looking out into the crowd, you couldn’t help but be moved by the mix of people of all ages and backgrounds.

Because Festival of Hope organizers helped promote the march and March for Jesus organizers did the same for Franklin Graham’s visit, volunteers between the two events also crossed.

Festival counsellor Mariusz said he was pleased with the March for Jesus turnout, but also glad the Festival of Hope could add to the message organizers wanted to deliver.

“Many people can make an excuse to not go to the march,” Mariusz explained. But because of the entertainment and Gospel message the Franklin Graham Festival offered, “it was a great chance to invite someone.”

The weekend event began with performances by popular Polish choir TGD, the Tommy Coomes Band and Dennis Agajanian. Michael W. Smith and Newsboys also performed.

Newsboys lead singer Michael Tait told the crowd, “For all the new believers out there who gave their life to Christ in Poland, this is what I want you to do. I want you to live your life with abandon.”

Where each person came from or how they got there didn’t matter. The crowd simply wanted to hear about the “hope” the Festival’s name promised to offer. And they did.
