God Loves You Tour Making Last Stop in Rochester, Minnesota on October 2nd

A 1,000-mile tour that is starting in Allentown, Pennsylvania on September 24th will be finishing in the well-known Rochester, Minnesota.  The entire evening will be one of music and hope to Rochester as Franklin Graham shares a message of God's love.

“I believe this is where our nation’s backbone of hard work, grit, and determination lies, but so many people in our country are struggling. They’re looking for hope, peace, and purpose in their lives. We’re coming to remind everyone there is Good News! God loves us, and He sent His Son Jesus Christ to earth to save us from our sins.” - Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

According to a press release, this evening and the entire tour is an outreach of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA).  A group of more than 100 churches and pastors in the Rochester area also helped make this event happen because they believe the powerful message of the Bible needs to be shared in the region.

“In these days of uncertainty, fear, brokenness and despair, it is clear that we cannot save ourselves personally or as a society. The only thing that can overcome and transcend these challenges is the love of God in the transforming, life-giving work of Jesus Christ. That is what the God Loves You Tour is about and why we want to invite all in the Rochester area to be a part of it!” - Nathan Brand, senior pastor of Berean Community Church in Rochester
