Billy Graham


Morling College (Baptist Seminary, Sydney Australia) joins with the global family in celebrating the life of Billy Graham. Our current Principal, Rev Dr Ross Clifford, began his Christian walk as a result of making a response at a Billy Graham Crusade. This is so for many Christian leaders in our country.

Morling College faculty, staff and students were actively engaged as counsellors and helpers in his three (3) Sydney Crusades. Morling Graduate, Rev Ron Baker, is just one who came to study with us as a result of his life being transformed by the Spirit of God after listening to Dr Graham. Ron left a life of alcoholism and abuse to train for Christian ministry. Boldly, Graham often rejoiced in telling Ron’s story.

Dr Billy Graham was the leading evangelist of our era, but for Morling more importantly, he was a person of humility, integrity – a man of God. He once said:

“Someday you will read that Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God”.
