CHARLOTTE, N.C. (BP)--While growing up, Will Graham says he didn’t feel the pressure of being the grandson of Billy Graham.
      His father, Franklin Graham, tried to make sure there was no pressure on him to enter the ministry. “Dad wanted to make sure that I wasn’t pressured and was doing it for the right reasons. He wanted to know that the Lord was leading me and not because of six letters,” Will said, referring to the famous Graham name.
