Grandson of Billy Graham to Visit Gardner-Webb University

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. — The Dimensions program at Gardner-Webb University announces its fifth guest for the 2014-2015 academic year. Evangelistic minister and global speaker Jonathan Lotz will share stories of overcoming challenges on Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 9:25 a.m. in the Paul Porter Arena, located inside the Lutz-Yelton Convocation Center (LYCC).  The event is free and open to the public.

Jonathan Lotz directs Jonathan Lotz Ministries. He comes from one of the world’s most well-known Christian families, and he is the grandson of evangelist Billy Graham and the son of Danny and Anne Graham Lotz.

“I read an article about Jonathan in an online magazine and felt led to invite him to share his testimony with our students,” shared Dr. Tracy Jessup, vice president of the Office of Christian Life and Service and senior minister to the University.  “He has faced great adversity in life and experienced the redemptive power of God in the midst of that adversity.”

Lotz is committed to preaching the Word of God and sharing the gospel around the world. He preaches the gospel in several states, as well as many other countries. He has served on staff with the Billy Graham Evangelic Association; Fellowship of Christian Athletes; Build the Village, a ministry organization serving east Africa; and Park Cities Presbyterian Church in Dallas, Texas.

Lotz desires to encourage the leader, equip the laymen and evangelize the lost. On a regular basis, he leads church revivals, speaks at retreats and encourages communities.
