Founded in the early 1980s, the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College provides training and resources to support evangelism.
"We have lost a true hero of the faith," Billy Graham Center Executive Director Ed Stetzer said in a statement. "And although he is now receiving a resounding 'Well done, good and faithful servant,' we will miss him deeply. His impact and legacy cannot fully be comprehended here. His love for each and every individual he met, and his commitment to sharing Jesus with the world God so loves, stands as a model for all of us who seek to continue his legacy."
