Leave a comment


It is hard to believe that the Greater Vancouver Festival of Hope is just a month and a half away.  The Billy Graham people, as I saw at the Greater Toronto Festival of Hope, are such a quality team, particularly in the music teams, the relationships between churches, and the media communication.  David Ingram, the Director of the Festival, along with Pastor Giulio Gabeli, the Festival Chair, have been giving remarkable, thoughtful leadership over the past two years.  It has been a joy to hear the following endorsements of the Festival of Hope from key Greater Vancouver pastors and leaders:
