Rev. Franklin Graham to Keynote IFI’s Annual Banquet!
Written By David E. Smith   |   06.11.19

You’ll definitely want to save the date for the next IFI Fall Banquet: Friday, November 1st. This year our keynote speaker will be none other than Rev. Franklin Graham, President & CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Christian evangelist & missionary. He is also Editor-in-Chief of Decision Magazine, the “Evangelical Voice for Today,” which features solid scriptural teaching as well as cutting-edge stories about issues and events in today’s culture, from a biblical worldview.

Franklin Graham is recognized as one of our nation’s most outspoken Christian leaders who has consistently defended Judeo-Christian values, America’s religious liberties, and the importance of the traditional family as indispensable for a stable society. Rev. Graham has also continuously worked to defend the right to life for all Americans, including the unborn. And through Samaritan’s Purse, he has helped to meet the needs of poor, sick, and suffering people around the world.

As a speaker and author, Rev. Graham regularly addresses current moral and social issues, calling Christians to stand for biblical values and challenging them to make a difference in the world for the sake of the gospel. Recently, he used his Twitter platform to respond to South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s claim that his Episcopalian religion and homosexuality is not a conflict of identities, saying:

Late last year, Rev. Graham also weighed in on the Satanic Temple sculpture that was on display in the Illinois Capitol Rotunda, next to the Christmas tree and near the Nativity Scene and Menorah. According to an NPR article, this display was “a gift from the Chicago branch of The Satanic Temple.” The article reports that this sculpture was called “Snaketivity” and was accompanied by a sign that proclaimed, “Knowledge Is The Greatest Gift.” Rev. Graham sent out a tweet saying that he agreed with Illinois Family Action’s tweet on the controversy, saying
