Baton Rouge, La — Pastors and religious leaders came together today to learn about how to spread the word of Jesus Christ with help from Billy Graham Ministries.
“My Hope America with Billy Graham” is a nationwide effort to lead people to Christianity.
With the help of a pastor training session today, Billy Graham Ministries hopes to get people to further the movement here in Baton Rouge. This involves opening up their homes, using technology, and sharing their passion for Jesus.
Members of the My Hope America movement say this will eventually be something huge in the United States.
"We believe that this is going to have a very positive impact on churches, individuals and therefore, on the community as well," stated Jim Wood with MHA.
My Hope America is open to everyone, not just pastors, and includes all denominations of Christianity.
