Billy Graham sets October 1999 Greater St. Louis crusade

ST. LOUIS (BP)–More than 300 clergy and other religious leaders gathered last week to celebrate the announcement that Billy Graham will conduct a crusade next year in St. Louis. The Greater St. Louis Crusade is set for Oct. 14-17, 1999, in the TWA Dome.
Graham was not present, but longtime associate Cliff Barrows was.
“The joy of the team comes when we hear ‘We’ve been praying for you,’” said Barrows, music and program director for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. “Don’t wait till ’99 for the blessing; begin to pray now.”
Sterling Huston, BGEA director of North American ministries, read a prepared acceptance speech written by Billy Graham, who said: “I pray that in the coming months, the Lord will sow seeds of faith, hope and unity among all St. Louisans — churched and unchurched — to prepare them to receive His harvest of blessings during The Greater St. Louis Crusade in October 1999.”
This crusade will be Graham’s third in St. Louis following one in 1973 and one in 1953.
