DecisionAmericaTour Franklin Graham 2Evangelist Franklin Graham has kicked off his 2020 Decision America Tour in the Sunshine State this year, bringing prayer and live worship music, along with a gospel message of hope and God's love.

Graham launched his free evangelistic events in this presidential election year in a key battleground state that possess the third-most electoral votes – behind only California and Texas. The president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) is asking God to bring healing to Americans, as divisive issues continue to plague the nation.

"The Good News of the Bible is God loves us, and there is power in that message that can change Florida," Graham proclaimed in a press release. "Through this event, people will have the opportunity to make a decision that can impact their lives now and for eternity."

The Florida stops hosting the world-renowned evangelist over a nine-day period this month have thus far included Jacksonville Beach, Plant City, and Panama City Beach. The Florida tour wraps up this weekend in Boca Raton (Jan. 18) and Fort Myers (Jan. 19).

The fourth of Graham's six stops is today in Key West, which many consider "the end of the road."

"A Key West slogan is 'close to perfect, far from normal' but for many, mile marker 0 represents the end of the road emotionally and spiritually," Glad Tidings Tabernacle senior pastor Jonathan Carey shares in the press release. "Franklin Graham is coming to Key West to share that we can find a new beginning at the end of the road through the life-changing message of the Bible."

This year's Decision America "Sunshine State Tour" features Grammy-nominated Christian music artist Jeremy Camp and award-winning guitarist Dennis Agajanian at all six cities. Camp joined the evangelistic event two years ago, when roughly 120,000 people attended the West Coast tour in California, Washington and Oregon. Agajanian started touring the world with Billy Graham more than four decades ago.

The Decision America tours launched in 2016, when Franklin Graham spoke at each of the 50 state capitals. Since then, he has held regional events yearly – from 11 cities across Tennessee and Texas in 2017, to 17 cities on the West Coast in 2018. This was followed by eight cities in the Northeast last year, along with another eight cities in his home state of North Carolina.
