Is There a Next Billy Graham?

„Articles in a variety of publications from faith-based to economics have mentioned these leading pastors and evangelists among others as possibly the next Billy Graham.

Evangelist Luis Palau has been called the Billy Graham of Latin America. He began preaching God’s word in Buenos Aires, Argentina as a pre-teen. Today he’s best known for throwing party-type evangelistic events with Christian music for young people in the United States and other countries as well.

Pastor Rick Warren was named most powerful evangelist in America by The Economist website in 2008. To be sure, his book The Purpose Driven Life challenged Christians and non-Christians alike to realize life isn’t about us but something grander – it’s all about God’s purpose for our lives.

Joel Osteen pastors the largest church in America, Lakewood Church in Houston, and has of late been trying to overcome the image that his message is just one of prosperity. He stated to CNN’s Larry King in a 2007 interview that his desire is for people to come to know Christ as their Savior; but nevertheless, we won’t get anywhere just preaching the negatives.

Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, Calif., has packed houses both on the road and at his home church with his ability to reach multiple generations in easy-to-understand, yet uncompromising speeches, sermons and books.”
