This chapter chronicles Billy Graham’s missions and influence around the world. Throughout his career, Graham held more than two hundred preaching missions of varied length in more than eighty countries and reached virtually every country in the world through various electronic media. In the process, he developed reputation, influence, and authority that enabled him to play a dominant role in creating a worldwide evangelical movement. This chapter describes the representative and most important evangelistic efforts on each of the continents other than North America where he proclaimed the Christian gospel in a substantial way. In addition, it gives a brief account of major international conferences that he and his BGEA associates organized, joining Christians from almost every nation into a world in ecumenical concord.
