Christian evangelist Franklin Graham will be in Clarksville on Thursday as part of his Decision America Tennessee Tour.
He kicked off the tour Monday in Chattanooga and after stopping in Clarksville, will be in Jackson on Friday and Memphis on Sunday.
“Thousands of churches and tens of thousands of people are excited to come together this May to pray for their communities in the Volunteer State,” said Lawrence Swicegood, director of Decision America Tennessee, in a story on the website for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Franklin Graham is the son of Billy Graham.
Each event will feature a time of praise and worship as well as special musical performances.
Dove Award-winning singer-songwriter Jeremy Camp will join the tour in Clarksville, Jackson and Memphis. Each stop will also include worship music from guitarist and singer Dennis Agajanian, who has traveled the world alongside Billy Graham and Franklin Graham.
This fall, Franklin Graham plans to tour Texas, stopping in seven cities.
Last year, he traveled to all 50 state capitals as part of his Decision America Tour that encouraged people to pray, vote and engage in the political process. His new efforts are aimed at reaching people in smaller and mid-sized cities.
Thursday’s event in Clarksville will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Liberty Park amphitheatre at 1188 Cumberland Dr. The event is free and open to the public.
