Today's Brithday

Happy Birthday - Billy Graham

Today marks the 90th birthday for Billy Graham who was born on a dairy farm in North Carolina on this date in 1918.

After high school he attended Bob Jones College for one semester but found it too legalistic. After attending Florida Bible Institute, he eventually graduated from Wheaton College with a degree in anthropology. After a brief stint as a pastor, host of a radio program, and even a year as a college president Graham went on to his life-long ministry as a traveling evangelist.
