Dear Watermark Church family,
This past week we have heard of the many wonderful ways that God worked through Billy Graham. But there is one contribution—perhaps his greatest—that is unknown by almost everyone.
In 2000, Billy Graham called a conference in Amsterdam for the purpose of advancing the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. At that event, various mission organization leaders were stirred to identify the unreached people groups throughout the world and to take the gospel to those people groups. One group of leaders at this conference, at Table 71, decided to be more intentional in this task. Watch this inspiring video about what happened at Table 71 at Amsterdam 2000: https://vimeo.com/38237609
From Table 71, Call2All was formed which has the goal of bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ to every man, woman, and child in the world. Watermark Church is a supporter of missionaries associated with Call2All. We have a role in reaching this world for Christ – let’s fulfill it in Monroe, the Tri-state and the world!
Billy Graham devoted his life to advancing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Perhaps his greatest contribution was the calling of Amsterdam 2000 which led to the Call2All initiative. Praise God for Billy Graham!
