Graham Launches Tour Across Oregon and Washington

Decision America Pacific Northwest Tour Begins Aug. 1 in Medford with Live Music, Prayer and Life-Changing Message of Hope

Political, racial and cultural issues are polarizing our country, and many people across America are looking at the future with fear and uncertainty. What we need is a miracle, and through his Decision America events, Franklin Graham is calling on people to ask God for help. Starting Aug. 1 in Medford, Oregon, Graham will take his tour to the Pacific Northwest.
 
Following the launch event in Medford, the Decision America Pacific Northwest Tour will continue across Oregon, with events in Bend and Portland, and then on to Washington with stops in Richland, Spokane, Tacoma and Monroe.
 
"America is in trouble and needs prayer more than ever," said Franklin Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the international Christian relief organization Samaritan's Purse. "We want to unite people from all walks of life, from every church and denomination, to pray for our leaders, our communities and our neighbors. Only God can change people's hearts and heal our country."
 
Along with prayer, each of the one-day Decision America Pacific Northwest Tour events will feature live music from Grammy- and American Music Award-nominated artist Jeremy Camp, and a message of hope from Graham. All Decision America Pacific Northwest Tour events are free, and everyone is invited to attend.
 
"We all face crossroads in our lives—moments when we need to make important decisions," said Graham. "Through these events across Oregon and Washington, people will have the opportunity to make a spiritual decision that can impact their lives not only now, but for eternity."
 
Graham started Decision America in 2016 when he held events in all 50 state capitals. He continued the tour in 2017 by traveling to 11 cities across Tennessee and Texas, and earlier this summer he shared the same life-changing message of Jesus Christ with visits to 10 cities across California.
