Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

We are privileged to serve the historic "Billy Graham Evangelistic Association" in its broadcast outreaches.  For more than 50 years, the ministry has been committed to sharing the Word of God in a weekly radio program, "Peace with God" (formerly called the "Hour of Decision®") as well as in a daily short feature called "Decision Today."  In powerful ways that penetrate hearts with the peace found in a relationship with Christ, Billy Graham and Franklin Graham remain focused on spreading the Gospel around the world through this evangelistic ministry.

Peace with God (formerly Hour of Decision®)

This historic broadcast features Billy Graham and Franklin Graham messages and is hosted by veteran broadcaster Bill Maier.

It was October, 1950 in Portland, Oregon, that Billy Graham was first approached by local Christian businessmen who encouraged him to begin a radio program.

Dr. Graham repeatedly declined because of his already busy crusade schedule.  On one occasion, he good naturedly said, "If before midnight tonight we receive $25,000 in funds dedicated only for radio, I'm willing to do the broadcast."  That evening, speaking before 17,000 people at the crusade, Dr. Graham repeated the story.  Although he never asked for financial help, many brought checks that night as money set aside for a radio program.  When the Graham people counted it at midnight, it totaled exactly $25,000.

Billy Graham went on the air with his first "Hour of Decision®" in November 1950 from Atlanta, Georgia during a crusade.

Continuing its impact into the 21st century, the name change from "Hour of Decision®" to "Peace with God" that occurred in May 2014 ties together the program's past, present and future with the one message that has been the focus of the organization since its beginning-the peace that is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Also, beginning in May 2014, a new on-line only entity launched.  Today, hosted by longtime BGEA staff member Cliff Barrows, "Hour of Decision® On-Line" remains a voice for evangelism.  More details can be found at  www.hourofdecisiononline.org
