Holy Week Service includes DVD Presentation at Dimensions April 15

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – The Dimensions program at Gardner-Webb University will be sharing a DVD presentation of  “The Cross” with students and community members on Tuesday, April 15 at 9:25 in Stewart Hall, located in the Tucker Student Center.

After premiering this past November as part of the national broadcast of My Hope America with Billy Graham, “The Cross” has become one of the cornerstone videos. Graham developed My Hope America as a nationwide effort to reach people across the United States with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“The Cross’ premiered on various networks last fall.  I watched it with my wife and teenage kids and was so impressed with the quality of this presentation of the Gospel,” said Dr. Tracy Jessup, vice president for Christian Life and Service and senior minister to the University. “The testimonies of Christian hip hop artist, Lecrae, and singer-songwriter Lacey Sturm, combined with reflections by Dr. Billy Graham provide an intergenerational message of the hope that is ours through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

Following a simple biblical model, My Hope America with Billy Graham combines the impact of video programs with the power of personal relationships. For more information on My Hope America with Billy Graham and “The Cross,” visit,
