Billy Graham
Evangelism is not a calling reserved exclusively for the clergy. I believe one of the greatest priorities of the church today is to mobilize the laity to do the work of evangelism.
Billy Graham
The evangelistic ministry is a fight, not a frolic.
Billy Graham
Philip is the only person in the Bible who was called an evangelist, and he was a deacon!
Billy Graham
Evangelism is more than simply encouraging decisions for Christ. It is urging people to become disciples—followers—of Jesus Christ. As such, the evangelist has a responsibility to make growth in discipleship possible for those who come to faith under his ministry.
Billy Graham
The evangelistic harvest is always urgent. The destiny of men and of nations is always being decided. Every generation is crucial; every generation is strategic. But we cannot be held responsible for the past generation and we cannot bear full responsibility for the next one. However we do have our generation! God will hold us responsible at the judgment seat of Christ for how well we fulfilled our responsibilities and took advantage of our opportunities.
Billy Graham
He who is called to and set apart for the work of an evangelist is to devote his time and effort single-mindedly to this God-given task. He is not to be distracted by anything likely to deflect him from this. Persecution will not weaken his resolution. The persuasion of others will fall on deaf ears. Only the clear leading of God will cause him to change his ministry.
Billy Graham
I just want to lobby for God.

Billy Graham
Some evangelists spend too much time thinking and even planning about how to achieve visible results. This is an easy trap to fall into.
Billy Graham
People, especially the young, wanted to hear about God and not man.
Billy Graham
During all my years as an evangelist, my message has always been the Gospel of Christ. It is not a Western religion, nor is it a message of one culture or political system . , .it is a message of life and hope for all the world.
Billy Graham
The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.
Billy Graham
Nowhere do the Scriptures tell us to seek results, nor do the Scriptures rebuke evangelists if the results are meager.
Billy Graham
The evangelist cannot bring conviction of sin, righteousness, or judgment; that is the Spirit’s work. They cannot convert anyone; that is the Spirit’s work.
Billy Graham
No clergyman however brilliant, no evangelist no matter how eloquent or compelling, can bring about the revival we need. Only the Holy Spirit can do this.
Billy Graham
Evangelism has always been the heartbeat for our ministry; it is what God has called us to do.
Billy Graham
Itinerant evangelists are the most important ambassadors and messengers on earth. They are a mighty army, spreading out across the world with a vision to reach their own people for Christ.
Billy Graham
An evangelist is like a newscaster on television or a journalist writing for a newspaper . . . except that the evangelist’s mission is to tell the Good News that never changes.
Billy Graham
God called me many years ago to be an evangelist, and I have never regretted His leading. I love the crusades, meeting people from every country and culture all over the world. My life has been blessed by friends from every land, and challenges from every corner.
Billy Graham
If we had more hell in the pulpit, we would have less hell in the pew.

Billy Graham
The great crowds themselves are meaningless. The thing that counts is what happens in the hearts of the people. The evangelist sows the seed, and much inevitably falls upon stony ground and bears no fruit. But if only a few seeds flourish, the results are manifold.
