Geordon Rendle (Former International President / CEO of Youth for Christ), is a Canadian from Victoria BC., wanted to thank Dr. Graham for his leadership.
"YFC is the world’s largest, faith-based GRO (Grass Roots Organization) with a focus on teenagers. We are in 140 nations with over 300,000 staff, volunteers and intercessors all because Billy Graham and a group of godly leaders saw a generation in need and answered the call to tell them the Good News - God loves you!
Thank you Dr. Graham, your legacy lives on the hearts and minds of the entire Youth for Christ family, both here in Canada and around the world.”
