Thank you Vancouver for a great Festival

By BGEAC | First Published: March 05, 2017

The Greater Vancouver Festival of Hope outreach weekend with Franklin Graham was held at Rogers Arena on March 3-5, 2017 and combined a strong presentation of the Gospel, inspiring music from well-known Christian artists, and powerful personal testimonies. Our prayer was that God would do amazing things in the Greater Vancouver Area and draw many to Himself.

Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous works among all the peoples! -Psalm 96:3 (ESV)
